About Chile

The seasons of the year in Chile are contrary to the northern hemisphere. Due to the enormous extension, there are different zones regarding climate and vegetation. From the desert in the North to the cold regions in the South the temperatures decrease with increasing precipitations. The climate is influenced by the high Andes in the East and especially by the cold Humboldt current, which flows parallel to the Chilean coast to the North and prevents higher temperatures. Along the coast and in the South, there is more humidity and freshness; from Central Chile up to the Atacama Desert in the North it is relatively dry. The best travel time for Patagonia is from October till March. The rest of Chile can be visited throughout the whole year.

About 20 million people do live in the country, and almost half of them in the regions of Santiago and Valparaiso. The composition of the population is ethnical and cultural more homogenous than in other Latin American countries. The majority are with around 70% mestizos (mix between Europeans and the Original people). The number of Chileans with solely European ancestors is around 25%. Another part of the Chilean population do consist of the aboriginal peoples as the Aymara, the Atacameños, the Rapa Nui, Mapuches, Huilliches, Pewenches, Kawashkar und Yaganes.
Chile is a long, narrow country stretching on the western side of South America with a Pacific coast spanning over 6,000 km of coastline. Distances in Chile are great. The fertile Central Region extends from a long valley north of the capital Santiago more than 1000 kilometers to the “Small South” to Puerto Montt. The deserts in the north, the Andes and Patagonia are rather sparsely populated and therefore ideal travel destinations for nature lovers, who want to enjoy natural wonders, silence and loneliness. The country has borders at the north with Peru, at the north-east with Bolivia and from the north-east down to Tierra del Fuego at the south with Argentina.

Geographically it is one of the most interesting countries on earth and for tourists and investors an extremely attractive and relatively safe country in Latin America. Many Europeans immigrated in the last centuries to this Andean country. They contributed a lot to the development of the country and founded villages, companies, schools and clubs. There are world famous cultural attractions. Some wooden churches on Chiloé Island, the historical quarter of the port town Valparaíso and the abandoned miners’ towns Sewell, Humberstone and the Santa Laura Saltpeter works in the Atacama desert were declared UNESCO world cultural heritage. The National Parks Torres del Paine and Rapa Nui were declared UNESCO world heritage.

Chiloé Island

Two hundred km long and 50 km wide, Chiloé Island is a unique region of Chile due to its remoteness and particular geographical, historical and cultural characteristics. The island is home to many 200-year-old UNESCO World Heritage churches and multicolored wooden houses that stand out in the turbulent sky.

Lake Region

Located about 700 km south of Santiago, between the Bío-Bío area and Puerto Montt, land of the Mapuche Indians, is home to a countless number of snow-capped volcanoes, huge araucaria forests and countless turquoise lakes. Ideal for adventure sports, one can enjoy activities as diverse as climbing volcanoes, trout fishing, horse-back riding, skiing, rafting or simply resting in one of the several thermal baths in the region.

Easter Island

Easter Island is the most remote inhabited land in the world, located in the middle of the Pacific Ocean, in Chilean Polynesia. Leave the continent and fly to this mysterious island that has become famous thanks to its monoliths, called moaïs, which are scattered over the green hills of the island, leftover from a civilization that has today vanished, taking with it the real meaning of these statues, which still intrigues scientists today.


Patagonia is every globe-trotter’s dream, the legendary destination at the end of the world where Mother Nature has given birth to some of its most spectacular elements: immense granite towers rising into the sky, huge glaciers plunging into lakes and sea, harsh mountains beaten by strong winds and endless grassland plains where herds of guanacos roam free.


Located in the North of Chile, in the heart of the Altiplano, Atacama is the world’s most arid desert, where extreme climate conditions create spectacular natural phenomena and landscapes. Large rocky fields, a ground cracked from the heat, active geysers, snow-capped volcanoes and surreal mineral-rich altiplano lakes populated with pink flamingos are all a part of the unbelievable decor.

Santiago and Valparaiso

Bohemian and colorful, poetic and somewhat eccentric, Valparaiso, UNESCO World Heritage Site, is a must-see in Chile. Located 115 km west of Santiago, built entirely facing the Pacific Ocean and surrounded by steep hills, the city served as a base for sailors and travelers from around the world during the 19th century. Visitors get the impression of an open-air museum as they discover this city by foot, exploring its narrow streets, endless staircases and historic funicular.
