  • Torres del Paine

Torres del Paine National Park  is undoubtedly the most photographed place in our country, both by Chileans and foreign tourists.

The Gray Glacier is also one of the most popular places, as well as the suspension bridge and its turquoise lakes. 

San Pedro de Atacama

The  Atacama desert is almost as popular as Torres del Paine on Instagram. Chilean travelers and especially foreign tourists, visit this picturesque town and its surroundings throughout the year. The incredible landscapes of the Moon Valley, the Cejar lagoon, the Tatio geysers and the Altiplanic lagoons Miscanti and Miñiques, are favorites in social networks. Just a couple of photos in these places that look like another world are able to raise even the most boring Instagram account.
