Summary

This Santiago and Atacama Tour is a tour of contrasts. Santiago de Chile has a mild climate, with views of the Pacific Ocean to the west and the snow-capped Andes to the east. Santiago is surrounded by fertile vineyards that produce wines that are exported throughout the world, as well as great skiing resorts in the mountains and warm beaches along the coast in Valparaiso and Viña del Mar. The Atacama Desert is located in northern Chile and is known as the driest desert in South America and in the world. Explore Atacama Chile and its surrounding sand dunes, moon-like valleys, geysers, and lagoons filled with flamingos.
