Land of Poets
Squeezed between the Andes and the Pacific Ocean, geographically diverse Chile is a long, thin stretch of land encompassing some of the world's driest deserts in the north, and some of its largest glacial fields in the south. Though most Chile holidays include some form of adventure in the vast wilderness areas, the country also contains charming cities providing plenty of urban things to do and see. Many tours of Chile include at least a brief visit to the country's lush wine regions, where backyard vineyards compete with sprawling estates producing some of the world's most respected whites and reds.

Shrouded in centuries of mystery, Easter Island remains one of the world's most geographically and culturally isolated places. Just over 6,000 people call the Chilean island home, with nearly double that number of visitors arriving each year to unravel the enigma of the island's giant stone heads, known as moai. Built by the island's original inhabitants, the Rapa Nui people, the monolithic moai continue to keep watch over the windswept coastline and serve as top Easter Island tourist attractions. During your Easter Island vacation, you can explore the hilly landscape on foot, by bicycle, or on horseback.
