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.
