Luxury Chile Tours & Vacations

Chile is vast, a long, thin expanse of land stretching more than 2,600 miles from the middle of the continent’s west coast to its southern tip. Santiago is its capital, a cosmopolitan epicenter, ringed by the Chilean coastal range and snow-capped Andes. It offers a myriad of spectacular destinations to explore, from the Atacama Desert to Chilean Patagonia and expansive wine regions like the Maipo Valley, conveniently located near Santiago and renowned for its exceptional Cabernet Sauvignon. A short list of activities includes some of the world’s best stargazing, epic hikes, fantastic surfing, and even mysteries to explore on Easter Island. 

Speak to the Expert

Chile’s four natural borders make it especially unique, with the Andes running down its spine to the east. The south is a hiker’s paradise with Torres del Paine and its remarkable granite spires that rise from the Patagonian steppe while wildlife like guanacos, condors, and pumas can be spotted, if you can take your eyes off the rest.

Why we love private tours of Chile


Maite Paz

Latin America Specialist

Private tours of Chile are always exciting with four natural borders making it particularly 

unique. The Andes run down its spine to the east while the west is home to both black and white sandy beaches, and mysterious Easter Island awaits 2,200 miles offshore. The south is a hiker’s paradise with the incredible granite spires of the Torres del Paine and wildlife like pumas and guanacos. Up north is the world’s driest desert, Atacama, with unrivaled stargazing. 

On a private tour of Chile, you’ll get to experience it all with the help of local guides who can reveal insider knowledge that makes for a much more authentic experience whether exploring the capital city, mountains, lakes, or the desert. 

Designing private tours in Chile is one of the best aspects of our job, with such a wide range of things to see and do – and, we get the privilege of prioritizing it all for you.

Best Places to Go in Chile

The hardest decision to make in Chile is where to go among its many fascinating destinations. Most start in the capital of Santiago, but from there, do you head to the nearby Winelands, south to Patato the Atacama Desert, or somewhere else?

  • Santiago


    Chile’s capital offers intriguing museums, fantastic fine dining, lively nightlife, and a thriving arts scene with lots to explore along the cobbled streets of the older barrios and modern cultural centers. 

  • Valparaiso Chile 402x402 1


    Located 90 minutes north of Santiago, Chile’s second largest city is tucked into the hills, known for its bohemian culture with colorful ramshackle streets, tin-walled buildings, and grand Victorians clinging to steep hillsides.

  • Lake District

    Lake District

    Made up of a dozen large lakes, rivers, cascading waterfalls, hot springs, snow-capped volcanoes, and densely forested national parks, the Lake District is a nature lover’s and outdoor adventurer’s dream.

  • Winelands


    The fertile valleys of the Winelands are tucked between the Chilean coast and the Andes, home to world-famous wineries, including exclusive estates that rank among Chile’s oldest and most beautiful. 

  • Atacama Desert

    Atacama Desert

    With its high altitude and nearly always clear skies, Atacama is one of the world’s best stargazing destinations. It also features soaring dunes, moon-like rock formations, and azure lagoons with pink Chilean flamingos. 

  • Torres del Paine National Park

    Torres del Paine National Park

    The star of Torres del Paine National Park is the soaring granite spires rising over 6,500 feet above the wild Patagonian landscape with its turquoise lakes, rushing rivers, and blue-tinged glaciers. 


Best Hotels in Chile

Chile offers a diverse spectrum of accommodation options, catering to every traveler’s preferences and budget. From economical choices to intimate boutique hotels renowned for exceptional service, there’s something for everyone. In remote regions, luxurious resorts beckon outdoor enthusiasts seeking upscale experiences coupled with breathtaking vistas. These often come as all-inclusive packages that encompass thrilling excursions. Across Chile’s cities and towns, a wide array of lodging choices awaits, spanning hostels, budget-friendly hotels, mid-range accommodations, and opulent establishments that rival South America’s finest, such as the renowned Ritz and Explora groups, synonymous with lavish comfort. A recent trend has seen the emergence of lodge-style resorts prioritizing wellness, complete with indulgent spas offering hydrotherapy, massages, and other pampering treatments. Many of these retreats provide curated tours and activities led by local experts, transforming your stay into an immersive destination experience in its own right.


When to Visit Chile

Chile’s extraordinary diversity, spanning 2,653 miles, makes pinpointing the best time to visit a delightful challenge. From the majestic Andes to volcanic landscapes, Chile offers year-round enchantment for every taste and season. Regionally, Patagonia shines from October to March, boasting accessible warmth and fewer crowds. Easter Island welcomes visitors year-round, with March standing out as an excellent month. The Atacama Desert, Santiago, and central valleys beckon year-round, though summer (Dec-Feb) sees peak crowds. Winter (Jun-Aug) draws skiing enthusiasts near Santiago while maintaining pleasant city temperatures. Wine lovers and wildlife enthusiasts find April inviting, with its colorful fall foliage and fewer tourists. Prepare for chilly temperatures in Torres del Paine National Park.

What to do in Chile

In Chile, do everything from lounging on beautiful beaches to exploring the mysteries of the Moai on Easter Island. The Atacama Desert is a stargazers’ paradise with a wealth of remarkable landscapes while breathtaking Patagonia can be explored on foot or horseback. 

  • Horse Ride with a Gaucho in Patagonia

    Explore Patagonia on Horseback with a Gaucho

    One of the most memorable ways to explore Patagonia is to join a horseback riding excursion led by a gaucho guide, kind of like a Latin American “cowboy.” Gauchos are renowned for their vast knowledge of the landscape and horseback riding skills, with trips into Torres del Paine National Park and beyond.

  • Moon Valley Atacama Desert Chile 402x402 1

    Sunsets and Stargazing in the Atacama Desert

    In the Atacama Desert, not only can you witness some of the world’s most brilliant cloud-free night skies for epic stargazing that includes countless shooting stars, explosive nebulae, and the Milky Way, but you can witness a glorious sunset over Calle de Luna, the “Valley of the Moon” with its otherworldly moon-like landscape.

  • Easter Island

    Easter Island and the Legends of the Moai

    Located approximately 2,200 miles off the Chilean coast, Easter Island is remote and mysterious, known for its nearly one thousand giant Moai rock statues, the last link to the demise of the isolated Rapa Nui culture. Tours will bring you to the Moai, other Rapa Nui archaeological sites, and beautiful Anakena Beach.


Your Chile Questions Answered

Do I need a visa to visit Chile?

It depends on your nationality. Many travelers from North America, Europe, and several other regions can enter Chile for tourism purposes without a visa for up to 90 days. However, visa requirements can change, so it’s essential to check with the Chilean embassy or consulate in your country before your trip.

What's the best time to visit Chile?

The ideal time to visit Chile varies depending on the region and your interests. Generally, Chile’s summer (December to February) is perfect for exploring Patagonia and the southern regions. Spring and fall (September to November and March to May) are excellent for central Chile and the Atacama Desert. Easter Island is a year-round destination.

Is Chile safe for tourists?

Chile is generally considered safe for tourists. It has a relatively low crime rate compared to some neighboring countries. However, as with any travel destination, it’s important to exercise caution, especially in crowded areas and at night. Be vigilant with your belongings and follow local safety guidelines.

What is the currency in Chile, and can I use credit cards?

The currency in Chile is the Chilean Peso (CLP). Credit cards are widely accepted in most urban areas and tourist destinations. It’s a good idea to carry some cash, especially when visiting more remote areas.

What languages are spoken in Chile?

The official language of Chile is Spanish. While English is not widely spoken in rural areas, you can generally find English-speaking individuals in tourist hotspots and major cities.

Are there any cultural customs I should be aware of when visiting Chile?

Chileans are generally friendly and polite. It’s customary to greet with a kiss on the right cheek, and it’s considered impolite to chew gum or speak loudly in public places. Tipping is common in restaurants (usually 10-15% of the bill), and it’s polite to say “gracias” (thank you) to show appreciation.
