If you have fantasized about a unique travel experience, let Culture Traveler plan your itinerary for a visit to Chile. Located between the Andes and the Pacific Ocean, Chile is one of South America’s most stable and prosperous nations. Between great wine and spectacular scenery, it’s certain to be the trip of a lifetime.

Spend a few days in Santiago, Chile’s diverse and culture-rich capital. A wealth of museums and parks await, such as the gardens at the Cerro San Cristóbal offering spectacular panoramic views, and the Museo de Artes Visuales, the modern art museum designed by Chilean architect Cristián Undurraga. 

You have not truly experienced Chile until you have toured its extensive wine country. Visit the numerous vineyards of the Casablanca Valley for delicious and complex white wines, or you can stay at Vina Vik retreat in Millahue, an art-filled spa located in its own Vineyard. 

Get off the beaten track in the storied Atacama desert, one of the driest and wildest places on the planet. The harsh climate means that this region is virtually untouched by human development, making it a truly unique destination. Visit San Pedro de Atacama, a small town in the heart of the desert, tour the nearby Valley of the Moon and watch as the sunset turns the Andes pink while enjoying the local drink, pisco sour, or tour Salar de Atacama, Chile’s largest salt flat that offers spectacular views of the Andes as well as their perfect reflections in its many salt pools.

Culture Traveler looks forward to working with you to plan your perfect trip to Chile.
