Ten fabulous views from Chile

Footprint Chile, describes Chile as having "an almost comical geograhical shape and virtually every climate imaginable, this beautiful, memorable corner of the world is a place of extremes and contradictions. Few countries have quite such a split geographical personality. Here, you can often glimpse the snows of the high Andes from the Pacific Ocean, ski in the mountains in the morning and be drinking pisco sours on the beach come sundown".

Footprint Chile, goes onto say that "to the south, the country is hemmed in by thick termperate rainforest, fast flowing rivers, icefields and glaciers, while to the north is the memorable Atacama Desert, with its endless space and pristine skies, and where some places have not seen a raindrop for centuries". After just two trips to Chile, with a lot more to see, I can say that what you will find waiting for you is a beautiful, diverse country, delicious food and wine and a wonderful experience which will leave you wanting to return.
