Few countries in South America can even begin to compete with Chile when it comes to epic natural landforms and surreal landscapes.
From the thick, dusty plains of the Atacama Desert – the globe’s driest non-polar desert – in the north, to the rich, fertile vineyards of the Central Valley, the verdant, rolling hills and brightly-painted churches of Chiloé, down to the far reaches of the South American continent in the alluring, secretive depths of Patagonia, Chile is vast, wild and utterly compelling.
