Chile

Chile is situated in the southwestern tip of South America between the Andes and the Pacific Ocean.

Its extensive length (4,200 kilometers, similar to a tour of Europe from Lisbon to Moscow) offers a huge variety of landscapes and climates throughout its territory, from the Atacama Desert -the driest in the world - in the far north to Patagonia’s millennia-old glaciers in the south.
