With snowy volcanoes and turquoise rivers in the Chileâs Lake District, expansive beaches and temperate rainforests on ChiloÃ© Island, and the amazing mountain-scapes of legendary Patagonia, Boundless Journeysâ Chile tours offer the best of this South American country. Travel to Patagonia, ChiloÃ© Island, and the Lake District:
We begin our tour of Chile in the Lake District, where mountains seem close enough to touch, temperate rainforests stand tall with ancient alerce trees, and rivers sparkle like jewels.
Next, we explore mystical ChiloÃ© Island. ChiloÃ© still supports a traditional culture of subsistence farmers, fishermen, and craftspeople, and a rich mythology populated by trolls, sea monsters, and eerie ghost ships. ChiloÃ© balances unbridled nature with one of South America's most remarkable traditional cultures, and is renowned for its seafood, its woolen handicrafts, and the warmth of its people.
After a whitewater ride down the Petrohue River, we travel further south to Patagonia, and the ends of the earth. The showpiece of this wild land is Torres del Paine National Park, a World Biosphere Reserve. In this region of Chile, glaciers, lakes, and towering mountains collide gloriously. The Torres del Paine are spectacular granite pillars that soar almost vertically above the Patagonian steppe. Hiking past cascading waterfalls, along sprawling glaciers, through dense forests, and the chance to see a Patagonian guanaco, make this the most spectacular of Chile tours available. Our evenings under the southern skies are spent in style, as we retire to comfortable hotels, plentiful seafood, and distinctive Chilean wines.
