Chile, Atacama and Easter Island

March 31, 2022 - April 10, 2022

Chili Tour e1630343828677

Chile, Atacama and Easter Island, an extraordinary journey to Santiago, Atacama & Easter Island.

Embark on an extraordinary adventure that takes you from Cosmopolitan Santiago to the very brinks of civilization with a visit to the high Atacama Desert and then to Easter Island, where the gigantic stone effigies glare over the Pacific. Santiago is energetic and worldly, filled with chic restaurants, iconic museums, and eccentricity to spare.  Nestled between the deep-blue curve of the Pacific Coast and the snow-dusted Andes, the Atacama Desert is one of the driest places on Earth.  It’s like exploring another planet filled with towering volcanoes, flamingo-frequented lagoons, salt flats, geysers, and shifting sand dunes.  It’s also one of the world’s best places for stargazing. Rapa Nui, known as Easter Island, is one of the most enigmatic, intriguing, and isolated locations on earth. Set in the middle of the Pacific, midway between Chile and Tahiti, the island’s allure revolves around the mysterious giant stone Moai statues.
