Elemental Chile inspires wonder at every turn, from the vast icy reaches of Patagonia to the jaw dropping star fields of the Atacama.
A narrow ribbon of a country unfurling a staggering 4300km along South America’s western coast, Chile is a land of vivid extremes. From arid desert to subtropical rainforest, high-altitude salt plains to vast glacial fields and fjords, the power of nature is tangible here. The warmer north encompasses the Atacama Desert and the llama herders of the Andean highlands, the centre features broad pampas and wineries, while the south is scattered with cool forests, volcanoes and lakes. Route Seven winds its way through rural Patagonia, taking in jagged Andean peaks, rolling pastures, and the spectacular southern fjordland.
