Discover magical Chile

Spain conquered and colonised Chile in the mid-16th century, replacing Inca rule in northern and central Chile, but failing to conquer the independent Mapuche that inhabited south-central Chile. After declaring its independence from Spain in 1818, Chile emerged in the 1830s as a relatively stable authoritarian republic.

• San Pedro de Atacama

Punta Arenas Tours, Travel & Activities

Where water does come to the surface in San Pedro de Atacama, there is life in the form of flamingoes taking off in the morning over Laguna Chaxa and the swift-running rhea that shows up at the altiplanic lakes at 13,500 feet. There's also water in the Ojos del Salar in the middle of nowhere …
