Few countries have a bountiful of globetrotting experiences like Chile. This long country on the Pacific Coast of South America is a mecca for trekkers and adventurers everywhere. It has the driest desert in the world, the Atacama, in the north, the vast expanses of Patagonia in the south, the Andes Mountains running along the eastern border, and the waters of the Pacific to the west.
The biggest draw to luxury travel in chile has been the geographical variety; you’ll find luxury options all over the country. Whether you want to stay in a luxury hotel in the city, explore an ancient world on Easter Island, or hike through the breathtaking landscapes of Patagonia or the Atacama, you’ll find plenty to indulge in. The following are the best options for a luxury trip to Chile.
- The Atacama Desert– The Atacama Desert, which stretches 1,000km north to south in the middle of Chile, is the driest desert in the world and the closest landscape on earth to what you’d find on the moon or Mars. However, despite how barren the landscape is, there is a lot of animal life to be found within its landscape of geysers, rock pools, and barren stretches of earth. It’s also an incredible spot if you love stargazing, as the remoteness and dry atmosphere makes for an undiluted view of the night sky.
- Enjoy the luxury adventure in Patagonia- Patagonia is one of the most popular hiking destinations in the world. The prime reason being the immense stretch of the barren landscape at the southern end of South America stretches across Chile and Argentina and has everything from mountains to glacial lakes to long stretches of barren hillsides. On the Chilean side, you’ll have various luxury options for accommodations while exploring one of the world’s best adventure destinations. Each of them offers breathtaking views of the park with large windows and tasteful wood designs meant to blend into the background and not distract from the views outside your window.
- Lake District- The entire area of Lake District stretches for more than 330 kilometers from Temuco to Puerto Montt and resembling the alpine regions of Europe, Chile’s Lake District is well worth exploring. Like its alpine cousin, this beautiful region of Andean foothills boasts rich farmland at the base of its many snowcapped volcanoes, ringed by thick forests and the kind of deep lakes that water sports enthusiasts drool over. And the connection to Europe doesn’t end there. After the forced resettlement of the region’s indigenous people, the Mapuche, farmers from Switzerland, Austria, and Germany arrived, bringing with them aspects of their own culture that can still be seen in the architecture of towns like Osorno and Valdivia, as well as in the region’s customs and festivals. For adventure seekers, the area offers endless hiking and biking potential, along with other fun activities such as volcano climbing, whitewater rafting, kayaking, canoeing, horseback riding, and, come winter, skiing.
