Top 20 Chile Tours & Trips
Discover the various regions of Chile on one of our top 20 Chile tours – from the Atacama Desert all the way down south to Patagonia. This very long, very narrow country is well-known for its contrasting landscapes and is quite possibly what makes these tours such a unique experience. Travelers can enjoy putting together the perfect Chile vacation package, as all of our tours can be fully customized, including the type of accommodation, transfers, and excursions.
Torres del Paine Tours
Torres del Paine National Park, in Chilean Patagonia, is one of the main highlights of Chile vacation packages due to the famous towers (the three dramatic mountain peaks), the Cuernos del Paine (the Paine horns), glaciers and icebergs, green grasslands, and grazing guanacos. To experience one of our gorgeous Torres del Paine Tours, fly from Santiago to Puerto Natales which is just an hour and a half away from the park or into Punta Arenas a little further away. Once in the national park, we recommend staying a few nights at a lodge in the park and taking guided excursions each day such as hikes and boat trips.

For an additional awe-inspiring natural landscape, add a trip to Bolivia’s Uyuni Salt Flats which is best connected with Chile through the Atacama Desert.

Things to Do in Chile
Additionally, travelers may be keen on wine tasting on a trip to Chile. The country’s isolation by the Andes mountain range and the Pacific Ocean makes for some of the finest soil in the world for wine cultivation. With an ideal climate, Chilean wines are some of the purest and most highly sought after in the world – making wine tasting in Chile one of the best things to do. Santiago, not far from the Casablanca Valley (one of Chile’s best wine regions), serves as a perfect home base for day trips through Chile’s central region, including the port cities Valparaiso and Viña del Mar for those looking for an excursion near the great Pacific. Any of our Chile travel packages can include these destinations and activities.
