Some of our Favourite Places in Chile

 

In addition to a fun week in Central Chile with us, why not visit some of our favourite tourist sites in Chile: (Domestic Flights with Sky Airline or LATAM airlines are very reasonably priced).

  • San Fernando: Your tour starts in San Fernando. While in town, check out the Plaza de Armes, as well as the smaller Plazuela. I also enjoy exploring the cemetery, with its European style tombs and mausoleums, and the Lircunlauta Museum.

  • Viña del Mar and Valparaiso: Treat yourself to a few days on the beach in Viña del Mar. Ride the cable cars or visit Pablo Neruda's house in the historic city of Valparaiso, next door. Only a 1.5 hour bus trip northwest of Santiago.

  • Altos de Licay National Reserve: Also in central Chile, you can find  great hiking in the Andes at this national park. Be prepared for the challenge and enjoy the beauty!

  • Constitución: In central Chile, the coastal city of Constitución is a great place to view interesting rock formations, take a walk on the beach, hike up the hill for a good look around, or observe the pelicans along the river side. Look up-river to the train bridge designed by Eiffel.

  • San Pedro de Atacama: Fly north from Santiago to Calama and take the bus to San Pedro de Atacama. From this  tourist town, in the middle of the desert, you can take day tours to visit the valley of the moon, the salt flats and the Atacama geyser field, not to mention spending an afternoon in the hot springs nearby.

  • Southern Chile: Fly south from Santiago or take a bus to visit the island of Chiloe,the Torres del Paine National Park, or the lake district.
