Long before poets like Alonso de Ercilla y Zuniga paid tribute to Chile, nature engaged in some inspired poetic license in creating this elegantly thin, magnificently varied land. This infinitely customizable, end-to-end journey introduces you to its many wonders, from the super-remote mountains of the Aysén region to the fertile farms, rushing rivers, and dense woodlands of the Lake District to the otherworldly Atacama Desert. You'll be among the first to explore the conservation work at the future Patagonia National Park on awe-inspiring, guanaco-dotted hikes.

ITINERARY


It was a pleasure to work with Jennine last summer to develop the details of our itinerary. I felt very comfortable asking a million questions and getting our trip planned just right. The itinerary pace and order of regions visited exceeded our expectations. Jennine demonstrated that she knows Chile very well.
