A long, thin strip of land located on the south-west of the South American continent, Chile is a diverse and welcoming country which is made for adventurers to explore. Its unusual geography means that it is a land of contrasts. From the bone-dry northern city of Arica in the Atacama desert to the freezing glaciers of Tierra del Fuego, Chile’s diversity is best appreciated in the great outdoors, where you can also witness a diverse selection of native wildlife. Visitors to volcanic country can also enjoy some of the world’s best wineries, whilst the colourful city of Valparaiso in the more temperate centre of the country is an vibrant port city with an endearingly artistic streak.
