Chile is a very long and narrow country in South America bordering the Pacific Ocean and the Andes. It’s over 5000 kilometers long from north to south almost reaching Antarctica. Easter Island, one of the most remote islands in the world, is also part of Chile. In northern Chile you find the driest desert (Atacama Desert) in the world with ancient ruins and beautiful scenery of the high Andes. Central Chile is home to the capital Santiago de Chile and the best vineyards of the country. If you go more south you’ll pass lakes, rivers, forests which get frozen more south. There it’s all about glaciers, icecaps and cold.
Chile is a beautiful diverse country with lots of variety in nature and culture. It’s a perfect place to make a road trip. It has also great wines and delicious food. If you want to go skiing in South America, then Chile is also the place to go. The diversity makes it a perfect country for travelling.
