What to see

Here are some ideas of what you can admire in this wonderful place:

Every region in Chile offers something special to visit, such as the Atacama Desert with its Valley of the Moon and the Valle dell’Arcoiris, Valparaiso with its murals, Santiago de Chile, the atmosphere magic of Easter Island, wine and pisco tastings in the Elqui Valley, the Torri del Paine National Park for trekking and climbing lovers, the island of Chiloè and its penguins, the geysers in El Tatio, the orchards in the middle of the desert at Frutillar, …

Nature

The landscape, the flora and the fauna of this country are just one of the reasons to visit it.

We have already mentioned Torri del Paine, and also the Elqui Valley, but there are also the sea, seals and sea lions to play with, the fascinating desert, in short, all that nature can offer.

Food and Wine

What you could eat and drink in this country

In Chile they have a wide variety of ingredients available, including meat, fish, vegetables and fruit. The main dishes are the lomo, usually cooked a lo pobre, which is not poor in reality. It’s a fillet of beef with stewed onions, submerged in a mountain of french fries and a fried egg on top.

The empanadas, baked and stuffed, are lighter and more digestible. Those de Pino have nothing to envy to the lomo for “lightness and digestibility”: onion, meat and boiled eggs. Only french fries are missing …

Another very special dish, tuypical of Chiloè Island, is the Curanto: a plate of seafood, chicken meat, vegetables, potatoes, a kind of bread, cooked underground enveloped in curanto leafs for about 4 hours.

Solar cooking is also practiced in this country. A very special method that can substitute our traditional oven.

Chile is also famous for its wines. It’s one of the best wine producers in the world: Cabernet Sauvignon and Franc, Merlot, Malbec, Chardonnay, Sauvignon and Cabernet Blanc. But it is also famous for Pisco, a non-aged wine distillate, which is also used as an aperitif.

In short, you can’t miss an excellent plate of ceviche while admiring the sunset over the sea at Easter Island while sipping a Sauvignon.

When to go

As Chile is such a long country and covers different geographical conformations, the best period depends on what you want to do.

It’s recommended to visit cities, such as Santiago and Valparaiso, in Spring and Autumn; the lake region and the Paine National Park are perfect in summer (December to March).

The south of the Country is perfect for skiing, so the perfect period is winter (from June to August),

Easter Island, in the middle of the Pacific Ocean, is super crowded from December to March, when temperatures, and prices, are high, so if you can, visit it in other period of the year.
