Combine Highlights like Andes Mountains, Deserts, and Altiplano
When combining Peru and Chile into one tour the most striking feature that both countries have in common is the shared desert that stretches from north of Santiago all the way to the north of Peru along the Pacific Ocean.
The waters of the Pacific are too cold to create rain along the coast, and so Peru and Chile have some of the world’s driest coastal deserts: the Nazca Desert and the Atacama Desert. Very rich in nutrients, the sea has always been an important fishing ground and as you can see in Peru around the Ballestas islands feature an incredible rich sea life. Although the coast is very rich. The waters coming down from the Andes provide plenty of water for irrigation or for almost 12 million inhabitants in Lima. Another popular Peru and Chile combination is much more tropical: Machu Picchu and Easter Island.
