Chile may be only about a hundred miles wide on average, but with a north-south axis of nearly 3,000 miles it packs a lot of different landscapes into its size – from the world’s driest desert, to fertile valleys of vines and dramatic, sparkling ice-fields interspersed with deep fjords.
Combine this diversity with some remote offshore islands and spectacular coastlines, and you begin to see why one of South America’s most sophisticated nations has a unique draw - ideal for luxury Chile holidays.
Some billionaires spend their money on flights into space. Others buy mega-yachts. But one has just poured a fortune into building a far-out art hotel - with its own world-class winery attached. Here is an excellent article on how this project was conceived and came to life.
The pleasant Mediterranean climate of Santiago and its surrounding valleys are perfect for wine-growing. Sip delicious sauvignon blanc wines under sunny skies amid the rolling hills of vines that lie between the ocean and the shadow of the towering Andes – on whose mountain peaks you could have been skiing earlier the same day on your luxury Chile holiday.
Heading north brings you to a breathtaking region of arid red sands and salt lakes, where flamingos flock. In the Atacama Desert vicuñas and alpacas graze on high volcano-flanked pastures under some of the clearest skies in the world.
The southern half of the country descends from the blue lakes surrounded by alpine-style towns and dense, ancient alerce or monkey-puzzle forests, to the deep fjords headed by immense glaciers and reachable only by boat. Remote and ruggedly beautiful Patagonian plains nestle in amongst the lower foothills of the Andes, dominated by towering iconic granite pillars, perfect for Patagonia riding holidays, trekking in South America and climbing.
And with its extensive coastline, Chile has some fascinating islands to explore whilst on your luxury holiday in Chile, from the colourful fishermen’s houses on Chiloé, and the rich flora and fauna of the Juan Fernandez Archipelago, to one of the world’s most remote inhabited islands, deep in the Pacific – Rapa Nui, or Easter Island, with its rows of immense carved moai statues.
Luxury Chile holidays are perfect for lovers of the great outdoors, but they also offer some amazing wildlife-spotting and gastronomic experiences. With a wealth of first-hand experience in this fascinating country, we can tell you where to go to sample Chile’s delicious, bountiful seafood, or how best to discover its remote fjords by boat or helicopter whilst on your luxury holiday in Chile.
