Chile can be visited all year round, but it depends on the area of the country you want to visit when it will be better. Chile is a country of extremes and that’s why the climate and landscape are so varied, just like Argentina. The best time to visit Patagonia is in our summer because the climate is warmer and therefore there are more activities available. If you want to visit the vineyards or the north of the country (Atacama Desert) you can do it all year round, but in winter the north has more pleasant temperatures.
At least 1 week, the best is to stay 3 nights or more in each area, so it also depends on how many places you want to visit.
It is very important to check the updated information of the Consulates and Embassies of your country. You can apply for an online visa (up to 90 days of validation) on the official websites of the Chilean Ministry of Foreign Affairs. You can find more detailed information about how to apply for a Chilean visa in our Argentina Travel Guide.
Torres del Paine in Southern Patagonia, the Lakes District in Northern Patagonia, the capital and vineyard area in the center of the country, and the Atacama Desert in the North.
Yes, it is safe to travel in the whole country, but as in all countries you have to be careful in big cities like Santiago de Chile.
Chile is a country of extremes. Its 4,329 kilometers in length, which makes it the longest country in the world, it is home to a great variety of cultures, climates, natural phenomena and stories that seem incredible. From the Atacama desert to Torres del Paine National Park, there’s a wonder in every detail and nature on a symphonic scale. Traveling to Santiago is just an hour away from world-class Chile wineries and skiing. The perfect honeymoon starts in the Lake District, surrounded by glacial lakes and volcanoes. Chile features some of the most pristine parts of our planet, enjoy all these attractions with our tours.
From its capital, Santiago, to the southernmost fjords, Chile is a destination for explorers. You can visit deserts, salt flats, and also lake-side villages and amazing beaches. Heading south, the Patagonian steppe rises and the stunning peaks of Torres del Paine National Park invites all travelers to enjoy a once-in-a-lifetime hiking experience. Isla de Pascua, Easter Island it’s also a popular must-have attraction on a tour to Chile.
Santiago is the capital of Chile and the largest city in the country. It’s located in the Central Valley and it features an amazing mixture of art deco and neo-gothic architecture with fantastic views of the Andes Mountain Range. It was founded in 1541 by the Spanish crown, and today is a must-stop to include in any of your tours to Chile.
Art collections of pre-Columbian and contemporary art, local markets, beautiful parks like Cerro Santa Lucía and the Mapocho River that flows through the city, are some of the attractions of Santiago. Located just one hour away from vineyards and the Pacific Ocean, there are other attractions you can visit near the city like Valparaíso and Viña del Mar, where most locals prefer to spend their summer vacation.
This tourist attraction is located in Chilean Patagonia. Located in southern Chile, Torres del Paine National Park was created in 1959. Its name comes from the distinctive three granite peaks of the Paine mountain range or Paine Massif. Paine comes from the Tehuelche language and means “blue” while torres means “towers” in Spanish. The Tehuelches, known for their hunting skills, were the first community to inhabit this region. Today, Torres del Paine National Park receives thousands of visitors every year looking for adventure. Most of them come to the park for the famous “W” trek, a 5-day hiking trip.
Puerto Varas is located on the shore of Llanquihue Lake, one of the largest lakes in Chile. As part of a government colonization project, it was founded in 1853 by German immigrants. Known as “the city of the roses”, Puerto Varas offers perfect views of the snow-capped and still active Calbuco and Osorno volcanoes. This destination is a perfect option to include in a tour to Chile where travelers seek outdoor sports such as kayaking, fishing and trekking. Don’t miss during winter the “Rain Festival”, when the locals celebrate the abundant seasonal rains. Looking to cross to Argentina? Puerto Varas is also an ideal tourist attraction to reach Argentina through a bus-and-boat trip, enjoy spectacular forested mountains reflected in shimmering lakes while traveling to Bariloche, Argentina.
Puerto Natales, the provincial capital of Ultima Esperanza, is located in the Chilean Patagonia at sea level on the shore of the Señoret Channel. This city is the gateway to the famous Torres del Paine National Park and starting your Patagonian journey here is easy as there are nearby airports. A popular spot to visit is the Southern Patagonian Ice Field, with South America’s largest glacier, the Pio XI or Ana María Glacier. Discover the Milodon Cave and learn about the history of this giant sloth that used to live here in this southernmost part of Chile more than 10,000 years ago. Sail through the Ultima Esperanza fjord and be amazed by the glaciers you’ll find on your trip. You’ll be amazed by the vibrant colors that paint the sky at sunset and the countless activities to do outdoors.
Named after the patron saint, San Pedro, San Pedro de Atacama is built around a laid-back oasis in the driest desert of the world! For all the thrill-seekers, it includes the perfect adventures between volcanoes, sand dunes and lagoons. With a blanket of crystal clear skies at night, this town is an amazing stop for all nature-lovers out there. San Pedro is quite small, but it attracts hordes of travelers. Ancient cultures and travelers from all over the world intermingle in this age-old town with dirt roads and adobe homes. Visit the old plaza and learn about the customs of its residents. Make sure to visit the old church. Take in all of the local art, and take a stroll through the workshops of the Craft Village to find out how they keep their traditions alive.

The company was very insightful and we felt our itinerary was thoughtfully put together. We really liked the L Hotel. It had a great feel & location. The staff were very helpful and nice. The hotel in El Chalten was nice and close to the trails. They even made special gluten free bread for me without me even asking – they just brought it out when I came to breakfast. The hotel in El Calafate was very nice and had the best breakfast. The hotel in Puerto Natales was supposed to have a restaurant, but actually does not even though their website indicates they do. This did make it somewhat tricky to find a place to eat on Christmas for dinner. There are pictures on the website of a pool – it’s still there, but definitely needs some care put into it. Great location. We really enjoyed all of the tours. For the itinerary, we really enjoyed the vast majority of things picked and enjoyed the fact that everything was planned for us already. The tours were very good and the guides were all knowledgeable. I can’t pick a favorite place since they were all so unique and special in their own way. There were a couple of changes we would recommend. We arrived in Chile around 10pm on Christmas Eve – the ATM at the bus station didn’t work, the money exchange places were not open. But even if we did have Chilean pesos, there were no cabs, so we had to walk to our hotel. It was doable, but not ideal with our bags. We did not realize the New Years Eve was mainly spent with family or outside of Buenos Aires and that so many businesses would be closed. Luckily our hotel found a restaurant close by we could get into for a meal and celebration. We were unaware that EVERYTHING would be closed on new years day in Buenos Aires. Had we known this, we probably would have flown home 31 Dec instead on 1 Jan.
We loved Argentina! The people were so very kind and the parts of the country that we saw are beautiful. We really enjoyed the food. (I’m going to try my hand at making empanadas). We went on many hikes and took tons of photos. All the hotels were very comfortable and clean. The staff at the desks were helpful and friendly. The hotel at Torres del Paine was extra special and a real treat. The car rental worked out very well. Being able to travel on our own schedule was so much better than being on a tour (which we had planned to do before Covid hit and Chile closed its borders). We can’t thank you enough for the planning and all the arrangements made for us. We had a truly memorable time in the beautiful Argentina.
We have little else to say but THANKS for all of your help during the organization of our trip to Argentina, Uruguay and Chile. It has been an amazing experience for us all the way through and your ceaseless support has been truly paramount for us. We found an excellent level of service with you and everything was super smooth (contrarily to the Drake’s Passage…)! Your super kind guides helped us discover in depth and in a genuine way the life and costumes of South America. Needless to say, a big big thanks for the initial setup of the trip with us at the beginning! So again thank you so much for your precious help, Best Chiara y Matteo
We had an incredible experience. The only hiccup we had were the flights being overbooked and having to spend more time than needed at the airport. Overall, we loved all the excursions. We would 100% recommend Say Hueque. - At Iguazu, we enjoyed having the private guided tour to learn more about the falls and Rodrigo was great. It would have been nice to have an extra hour or so at the end to walk around ourselves and revisit some of the falls- they were so beautiful and could have spent the whole day there watching them! - For the hike at Torres del Paine, the guides were fantastic. We are just faster hikers and don’t typically hike in a group. I think for that excursion, having the option to take the bus there and do a hike on our own and bus back would have been nice. - The museum was closed in Ushuaia for the penguin rookery tour. Would recommend scheduling that tour on the days the museum is open if possible. Either way, seeing those penguins so close was so much fun! They’re so cute! - Wish we could have been there one extra day to watch Argentina win the World Cup while in Argentina! What a fantastic game!!! Thanks again for all your assistance with this. We had a wonderful time and hopefully one day we can go back (we really want to combine the O and the W for a backpacking trip in Torres del Paine!) All the guides and hotels were fantastic and we wish we had more time there, we really had the best honeymoon we could have asked for! Merry Christmas and happy New Year!
The trip was bucket list dream come true for Yukiko and became mine as well after discovering Patagonia with my own eyes! We are glad to rest in between and enjoyed the main experiences like gentle horse back riding with amazing view, mini hike on Perito Moreno Glacier, and hike at near Torres del Paine (we could not make to the main hike due to decided to rest). Even more, all the hotel, Frances Drake Hostel, Los Canelos Hotel, and Rio Serrano hotel had such a breath taking views and we want to thank you so very much for making our trip possible and wonderful. If it wasn't for your bright suggestions and help with changing our bus time, we would not have been able to complete our bucket list on our honeymoon. Happy holidays and best wishes!
In a word, "fantastic" and all due to your great planning, coordination and documentation. "Thank you". All private transportation arrangements were on time, courteous, and clean. Most of the hotels lived up to their 3 star rating. The Torres Del Paine was great for viewing but the dusty pothole roads were an unpleasant necessity. Can't think of anything more to add except the 6 hour boat trip out of Ushuaia to "walk with the penguins" that didn't materialize but on the other hand, the End of the World train ride was an enjoyable highlight. Many thanks again
Mauricio was a fantastic tour leader! And the trip was amazing. Not for the weak of heart, but if you're in fair shape, you'll be rewarded with breathtaking views. The yurts were gorgeous, and the cuisine was excellent.
We are a group of seven Canadians. We had a fantastic time in Patagonia. Agustin Orso, our agent, has been really helpful. Our 14-day plan was totally tailored to our preferences, with visits in Ushuaia, Puerto Natales (Chile's Torres del Paine), and El Calafate. All of our guides were fantastic and spoke English fluently. We had varied hotel classifications, with Palo Santo in Buenos Aires being the finest, but the others fulfilled our expectations.
Our vacation was fantastic. Everything was well prepared. Excellent communication with the organizer; my emails were nearly immediately responded to. The accommodations were as promised, with a few additions. In hotels/hostels, there was information on our departures/excursions waiting for us. The transportation was on time. We had ample time for ourselves and were free to use it anyway we saw fit. I have nothing negative to say. I'd like to go on this vacation again, even though I only have positive recollections! Already missing the sun, rain, people, and scenery.
This group of people gave me a life-changing experience. Each tour guide offers a leisurely pace. They also discuss the area's history. They arrived at the hotel on schedule. For the Cerro los Cristales hike, I hired a private guide. He's now a lifelong buddy of mine. I strongly suggest it.
