Tucked away behind the Andes is South America's tall, leggy beauty, Chile. Her vital statistics are impressive: only 180km wide but 4329km long, and with looks to die for. From the arid Atacama Desert in the north through to temperate rainforests, the spectacular Chilean Lake District and the glaciers, lakes and fjords of Chilean Patagonia, Chile's dramatic landscapes are hard to resist and a luxury holiday or honeymoon here is simply unforgettable.
Once a backpacker-only trip, the excellent luxury explora Atacama hotel now offers the holiday of a lifetime from Chile's Atacama Desert across into Bolivia's Salar de Uyuni, a blindingly-white salt desert dotted with black volcanic rock, giant cactae and multicoloured lakes.
Meanwhile, a five-hour flight west of Santiago, Chile's cosmopolitan capital, mysterious Easter Island awaits discovery, its colossal Moai statues inviting intrigue and fascination from all that set foot on this island's remote shores.
