Wild Chile: Off The Beaten Track
Our comprehensive off-the-beaten-track itinerary offers a diverse mix of activity and wildlife in three of Chile’s most dramatic regions: the Atacama Desert, the Lake District and southern Patagonia. After a day’s trek out of Santiago to the spectacular El Morado Reserve, fly north to San Pedro de Atacama. Explore the vast desert landscape by van, foot, and bike, enjoying sunset scenes over Moon Valley and early morning light at the El Tatio geysers. The landscape changes dramatically in Chile’s lake district where you experience the depths of the temperate moist forest. Based at the quirky, unique Huilo Huilo Biological Reserve, pursue an active programme of nature walks, horse riding, boat trips, kayaking and zip lining. The last few days are spent in the far south of Patagonia at spectacular Torres del Paine National Park, exploring the astonishing landscapes by kayak and on horseback, mountain bike and foot. This is an excellent all-round itinerary for those seeking an active journey to some of the southern hemisphere’s most extraordinary and beautiful wilderness locations.
