Chile is one of the most naturally and culturally diverse places in the world, stretching 2,500 miles across Andean peaks, dramatic coastline, and the otherworldly Atacama Desert. Along the way, you’ll find award-winning wineries in the Colchagua Valley and the bohemian enclave of Valparaiso—not to mention Santiago de Chile, one of South America’s most dynamic cities. When is the best time to visit?
Visit during Chile’s spring in September, October, or November to see the country come alive with color or during their fall, which happens March through May. Many attractions are closed during their winter season in July and August. Learn moreWhere should I go in Chile?
Stargaze in the Southern Hemisphere’s clearest skies, ski or snowboard in the Andes, explore the iconic statues of Easter Island, explore the colorful streets of Valparaiso, watch the sunset over the dunes of the Atacama Desert, and soak in the deeply azure fjords where the mountains drop dramatically straight to the water.
