Traveling in Chile

Easter Island
A mere dot in the vast Pacific Ocean, Easter Island (known as Rapa Nui to locals) is a one-of-a-kind destination whose very remoteness lends it unmistakable authenticity and an aura of mystery.

Explore Rapa Nui’s pink-sand beaches, its volcanic cones and windswept grasslands and of course the monumental moai statues.  Discover the intriguing culture of Rapa Nui people during Tapati, a traditional festival held in February in which local teams compete in challenges to test their ability in time-honored Easter Island skills.

Santiago and Valparaiso
Discover Santiago, the multi-faceted capital of Chile, with its fine parks and numerous sporting and cultural activities.

Lose yourself in the hilly port city of Valparaiso and discover the intense, atmospheric palette of colors and flavors.  Then relax and cool off in the Pacific Ocean at one of the beautiful nearby beaches.

During the southern winter you can find some of the best ski slopes in South America against a majestic Andean backdrop.  The journey from the mountains to the ocean takes only two hours by road.

San Pedro de Atacama
Ancient cultures and travelers from all over the world intermingle in this age-old town with dirt roads and adobe homes.  Explore the region’s plentiful attractions, active geysers, lagoons renowned for their intense colors and breathtaking salt flats.  If you are looking for adventure, travel through the desert on bike, slide down the dunes on a sandboard or enjoy the superb view of the region from a hot-air balloon.

Once night falls there is nothing better than to enjoy gazing at the endless amounts of stars twinkling across the sky of the driest desert in the world!
