Torres del Paine

In the southernmost part of Chile, the majestic Torres del Paine emerge as imposing guardians of the Patagonian landscape. This iconic national park, declared a UNESCO Biosphere Reserve, has its origins in a fascinating geological history. The granite towers, dating back millions of years, offer a breathtaking view, especially at sunrise and sunset.

Currently, Torres del Paine stands out for its commitment to conservation and sustainable tourism. Visitors can explore a variety of trails that reveal the diversity of flora and fauna, from guanacos to condors. Among its major attractions are the Cuernos area (north, main, and east), the Towers (south, central, and north), the Sarmiento, Nordenskjold, Pehoé, Grey, Paine, and Dickson lakes, and the Verde, Azul, and Honda lagoons, must-visit stops for photography and contemplation.


On the northern coast of Chile, Iquique presents itself as a vibrant mix of history and modernity. Its origins trace back to the era of the nitrate boom, a crucial chapter in the country's economic history. Today, Iquique is famous for its extensive beaches and waves perfect for surfing.

The Land of Champions offers a setting where fun and culture converge. The Zona Franca is a paradise for shoppers, while the historic center transports visitors to the past with its colonial architecture. Adrenaline enthusiasts can enjoy thrilling water sports, such as kitesurfing, at Cavancha Beach.

Salar de Uyuni

Although technically in Bolivia, the Salar de Uyuni shares its magic with the Chilean border. This vast salt desert, the result of the evaporation of prehistoric lakes, is the origin of one of the most astonishing natural spectacles. In February, rains transform the salt flat into an infinite mirror reflecting the sky and surrounding mountains.

The history of Salar de Uyuni dates back to ancient indigenous cultures that inhabited the region. Today, this unique place offers a surreal experience. Travelers can walk on the salt crust, visit Isla Incahuasi, and marvel at the sunset that paints the salt flat in warm tones.

Valle del Elqui

In northern Chile, the Elqui Valley presents itself as an oasis of serenity and natural beauty. Its origin lies in pre-Columbian history, where indigenous cultures valued the spiritual connection with the night sky. Today, the valley is famous for being one of the best places in the world for stargazing.

The present-day Elqui Valley combines tradition with modernity. Visitors can tour vineyards producing wine and the famous Chilean pisco, explore charming towns like Vicuña, and enjoy the peace offered by the Valley of Enchantment. Astronomical observation at local observatories is a unique experience.

Laguna San Rafael

In the Aysén region, Laguna San Rafael is a stunning testament to the power of nature. Its origin dates back to the glacial era when glaciers sculpted this majestic landscape. Today, the lagoon is home to the imposing San Rafael Glacier.

In the national park that houses the lagoon, you'll have the opportunity to sail among icebergs and witness the falling of ice blocks. Visitors can explore the surroundings by boat and enjoy the magnificent view of the glacier from different perspectives.
