Chile

The longest country in the world offers incredible diversity

Chile is 4,200 km long, which makes it the longest country in the world.  A trip to Chile is a journey of extremes. Ranging from the driest desert in the world, the Atacama Desert in the north, to icebergs in Torres del Paine National Park in the south. There are many unique animals such as the condor, guanaco and puma.

Chile belongs to the most diverse countries in the world. The country is no less than 4,200 kilometers long and is largely bordered by the Pacific Ocean. On the northern border you can find the famous Atacama Desert, the driest desert in the world. In the east, the huge Andes mountains rise up.

In the Andes, you can find Aconcagua (6,962 meters), the highest mountain in Chile. In the south, the region of Patagonia, the mountain range spreads out to the coast in fjords and islands. After, Antarctica, has the largest freshwater reserves in the world. Chile will continuously amaze you.

A tour of Chile is a journey of extremes. In the Atacama Desert, there are places where there has never been any rainfall. And the altiplano has a desert climate, with a little rain (up to 300 mm per year) but there is night frost year-round.

The mountain climate also dominates the Patagonian Andes, with many cloudy skies, storms and frequent snow. Here you will find one of the most beautiful nature reserves in the world: Torres del Paine.

Easter Island also belongs to Chile. This strange island has an extreme past and a great appeal for tourists.
