Chile was described as a crazy geography by the writer Benjamín Subercaseaux. Few countries offer deserts, glaciers, beaches, jungles and volcanoes in the same territory. Most foreign students get out and enjoy this diversity in Chile.
Favorite attractions are San Pedro de Atacama with its salt flats and geysers, Patagonia, Valparaiso, Chiloé and Easter Island.
Chile’s wide range of landscapes also means that all kinds of outdoor sports can be found here. Chile’s 4,300 kilometers of coastline means a wide range of spots for surfing and scuba diving.
The Andes mountains are home to some of the best ski and snowboarding slopes in South America. Kayaking, fly fishing, trekking, cycling and windsurfing are other major attractions.
People looking for something a little quieter can visit wineries and taste wine, try stargazing at the country’s observatories or visit any of the country’s many museums.
