Start your journey through Chilean Patagonia in the Araucania region and Lake District in Central Chile, with its snow-capped volcanoes and majestic lakes. Move south to Chiloe Island - just off the coast - with its spectacular beaches and lush green national park; this island is a nature- and wildlife-lover’s dream with incredible flora and fauna both on land and in the surrounding water.
further south through the lush green mountains landscapes of Patagonia and its numerous national parks. Lovers of ranting should stop by the Rio Futaleufu river valley - also known as the ‘Grand Canyon of South America’ - for some serious adrenalin-fuelled adventures in the water.
Continue on and you’ll find yourself in the province of Magallanes, with its dramatic fjords, giant glaciers and lost lagoons. Make your way to the iconic and incomparable Torres del Paine National Park and bask in the beauty of its 600,000 acres of extraordinary lakes and glaciers. All Chilean Patagonia holidays should include time in this area of almost-unbelievable natural beauty. Marvel at the jutting mountains that pierce the sky and their softened reflections in the vibrant water that changes from green to blue.
The spectacles don’t stop here. Before you know it, you’ll be on the long road from Punta Arenas to Puerto Natales, passing desolate, windswept landscapes. At the end of your journey, you’ll meet the Strait of Magellan
