Did you know that Chile is the country with the Americas’ largest number of active volcanoes? This is the reason why geological tourism and fascination with Chile’s volcanoes is an increasingly popular and widespread phenomenon in our country.

Among the thousands of Chilean volcanoes, there are some that are an essential part of our history, whether due to their eruptions, geological heritage, or connotation for our indigenous culture.

Chile has been named the best adventure travel destination in South America at the World Travel Awards from the last 3 years.
Why? Unique nature, climate diversity, and geographic contrasts are the principal characteristics that make Chile an incomparable destination. The great geographic barriers that surround Chile, such as the Atacama Desert, the Pacific Ocean, the Andes Mountains, and Patagonia and the Antarctic Territory give a distinctive character that allows you to take part in adventure activities in places in which man has barely set foot.

Discover Santiago, the multi-faceted capital of Chile, with its fine parks and numerous sporting and cultural activities. Explore Cajón del Maipo — an oasis just outside of Santiago — and connect with nature, a sense of tranquility and fresh mountain air when
you hike at “El Morado” Natural Monument in the heart of the Andes Mountain Range.
The Lake District, which stretches 339km from Temuco in the north to Puerto Montt in the south, is a region of lush farmland, dense forest, snowcapped volcanoes and deep, clear lakes, hidden for the most part in the mountains. The real action lies in the region’s many national parks and around the adventure sports capitals of Pucón and Puerto Varas, where the options abound for Hiking, Volcano-climbing, Rafting, Kayaking, Canyoning, Horse riding and Soaking in the many Thermal Springs. In the winter, Skiing down volcanoes draws an adventurous crowd.
Finally, Easter Island (Rapa Nui: Rapa Nui, Spanish: Isla de Pascua) is a Polynesian island in the southeastern Pacific Ocean, at the southeasternmost point of the Polynesian Triangle. Easter Island is famous for its 887 extant monumental statues, called “Moai”, created by the early Rapa Nui people. In 1995, UNESCO named Easter Island a World Heritage Site, with much of the island protected within Rapa Nui National Park.

Welcome to the Adventure country in Sudamerica…Chile!

Far from the cosmopolitan and vibrant city of Santiago, a very special grape grows. Almost killed by insects, and then forgotten, the Carménère was reborn more than 10.000 km away from its homeland and today is Chile’s most renowned wine around the world… But how did that happen?

In the 19th century, the phylloxera epidemic almost wiped all of France’s raisin plants, forcing French winemakers to start over with their plantations of Malbec, Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, and Carménère. Their efforts worked and almost all of the strains were brought back to life, but the Carménère couldn’t adapt to the cold spring and early autumn rains of Bordeaux and got extinct.

More than a hundred years passed and the Carménère was reborn in central Chile. How? A decade before the plague that affected France started, a few strains of Carménère joined the European winemakers that migrate to Chile around 1850. However, this survivor wine strain was sown next to Merlot and Cabernet plants and for years Carménère was marketed as these two varieties.

For those who are looking for amazing landscapes, cultural diversity, delicious food, excellent wine, and a great human experience with warm-hearted people, Chile is a must-see destination. Our country has a unique mixture of landscapes and different kinds of weather which delivers an incredible display of natural wonders, such as the Atacama desert, Lake District, Patagonia and Easter Island “Rapa Nui”.

On December 14, 2020, a total solar eclipse will cut across Chile’s Lake District at Northern Patagonia, where anyone within the 56-mile-wide path of totality can witness the moon pass fully between the sun and Earth.

The phenomenon occurs when the new moon comes between the sun and Earth and casts its umbra – the darkest part of its shadow – on Earth. A total solar eclipse is almost as dark as night. While the majority of this year’s total solar eclipse will take place over the Pacific Ocean, it will pass over South America – Chile and Argentina – in the late afternoon, meaning Chile’s Lake District is one of the best – and only – places in the world for viewing. Come and enjoy the unique natural event…Once in a Lifetime!

Caleta Chañaral de Aceituno
Right in the middle of the Atacama Desert, the coast of Chañaral de Aceituno keeps the secret of being one of the only places in northern Chile where you can spot humpback, minke and blue whales. Due to the Humboldt current that gathers a great amount of food on this area, these giant mammals decide to make a stop in their route that takes them from California to the Antarctica every year.

Puñihuil and Melinka
The north-east of the mythical Chiloé Archipelago and the Corcovado gulf have gain fame for being the area where it is possible to admire the biggest amount of blue whales in the south hemisphere. Next to Puñihuil, close to Ancud, it is estimated that at least 300 whales of these specific species are living in the area. This area reaches up to the town of Melinka, in the Guaitecas archipelago. This is not only a temporary stop for these animals, but also a feeding and recovery place, which implies a greater area of preservation.
