Chile travel tips - 5 unique experiences in Chile

Chile travel tips: Chile is one of my absolute favorite travel destinations, which I happily recommend again and again. I think Chile has to be experienced - the variety of experiences in the most diverse landscapes that the long, thin country has to offer is simply unimaginable.

To make the decision to travel to Chile easier for you, I would like to introduce you to my 5 favorite experiences that are simply part of a unique Chile vacation.

“5 Unique Experiences in Chile”

1) Chile Travel Tips: Atacama Desert

The Atacama Desert is probably one of the most bizarre landscapes in South America. There are places here where no rain has fallen for decades. The hills shimmer in all shades of brown and ocher. Highlights include the Surire Salt Flat, the Puritama Hot Spring, and the Tatir Geyser, the largest of its kind in the southern hemisphere. The desert can be ideally explored with your own rental car, but for that certain kick I recommend glamping in the Adventure Camp “Swimmers of the Desert”. Everything is better with a campfire under a clear starry sky.

2) Travel tips Chile: Valparaiso

Valparaiso is a beautiful port city not too far from Santiago, so it can be ideally combined with a few days in the Chilean capital. The city is known for its colorful architecture. Ornately painted stairs and candy-colored houses adorn the streets that meander over the city's steep hills. My favorite hotel is the Palacio Astoreca, which is housed in a former aristocratic villa. It is located in the middle of the city center and offers a wonderful view of the bay. A special highlight is a ride on one of the funiculars or a romantic boat tour after dark - the hustle and bustle of the city quickly turns into a glittering sea of lights.

3) Patagonia Travel Tips: Torres del Paine

I could rave about Patagonia forever - and even then I wouldn't have mentioned everything there is to experience there. My personal highlight among all the national parks, road trips and glacier tongues is the hike to the Torres del Paine, the 'towers of the blue sky'. And in fact, after the first section of the 6-day trekking classic, I was offered the most beautiful sight of gray rock masses against a bright blue sky. The remaining days continued to numerous other viewpoints - one more spectacular than the other - and to glaciers, glaciers and even more glaciers.

4) Travel tips Tierra del Fuego: Isla Navarino

Tierra del Fuego is actually part of Patagonia, but due to its special landscape, it still deserves a separate mention here. Impressive mountain peaks tower high above the scattered islands; here and there a mighty glacier moves towards the sea. Beautiful fjords and sounds cut deep into the land masses, especially the Strait of Magellan and the Beagle Channel. My favorite island is by far the Isla Navarino. The southernmost trek in the world can be done here on the Navarino Circuit. For 6 days you hike through wide moorland and impressive southern beech forests, past the most beautiful lakes on the island and high up into the Navarino Mountains.

5) Travel Tips Chile: Easter Island

I particularly like to think back to my time on Easter Island. During my world tour Levi and I stayed here for 8 days. It's unbelievable that it was over 2 years ago - I'm still totally in love. In the dramatic hilly landscape. In the Polynesian charm. In the rock sculptures on the coast. In the rough climate. In the traditional dances. This trip was an absolute highlight for me, and last but not least, very important in terms of both human and culture. There are numerous possibilities for excursions on foot, by bike or on the water - you should allow at least 4 days for this.
