March offers the opportunity to explore some of the most stunning destinations in Chile.

With the arrival of March, Chile bids farewell to summer, but not before offering travelers the opportunity to enjoy the last traces of warmth and pleasant temperatures.

It's the perfect time to explore stunning destinations and participate in exciting outdoor activities.

Here are some of the outstanding destinations you can visit in March:

Trekking in Cajón del Maipo

Located just a few kilometers from Santiago, Cajón del Maipo is a paradise for trekking and nature enthusiasts. In March, temperatures are still warm, creating ideal conditions to explore the impressive landscapes of mountains, rivers, and waterfalls. From gentle walks to more challenging routes, Cajón del Maipo offers options for all skill levels. Don't miss the opportunity to visit Embalse El Yeso, a place of indescribable scenic beauty.

Expedition Cruise in Patagonia

March is the perfect time to embark on an exciting cruise adventure through the majestic Patagonia. Explore glaciers, channels, and fjords while marveling at the diversity of Patagonian wildlife. From penguins to whales, marine fauna will accompany you on this unforgettable experience. Punta Arenas is a starting point for these cruises that will immerse you in the unexplored beauty of the southernmost part of Chile, even reaching the Argentine city of Ushuaia and Tierra del Fuego.

Chiloé Island

Chiloé Island, with its unique charm, is a destination that combines rich cultural tradition with stunning natural landscapes. Visit the iconic palafitos in Castro, explore the UNESCO World Heritage wooden churches, and be captivated by the exquisite local cuisine featuring dishes made with fresh seafood. March offers pleasant weather to discover the authenticity of this magical island.

Puerto Varas

Located on the shores of Lake Llanquihue with views of the Osorno volcano, Puerto Varas is a destination that combines nature, culture, and adventure. In March, you can enjoy pleasant walks through the city, explore the lake surroundings, and participate in water activities. The German architecture of the city adds a special touch to this corner of southern Chile, where the autumn colors begin to paint the landscapes.
