What to see & do in Chile

As ever, if you can’t see it here then we can still plan it for you.


Stretching from arid desert to snow-smeared mountain peaks (imagine: delicate, icy spines stabbing into infamously clear...

Stretching from arid desert to snow-smeared mountain peaks (imagine: delicate, icy spines stabbing into infamously clear skies), Chile is a must-go destination for a luxury holiday in the great outdoors. But it also lays claim to some truly vibrant cities. We could write an epic poem to Santiago. We’ll not put you through that. Here’s the ‘long story short’: Santiago has emerged from the shadow of its neighbours with (a) an incredibly vibrant food scene; (b) bustling, diverse neighbourhoods (take us back to the trendy taverns of Barrio Lastarria); and (c) the sharp, jade box of the Museum of Memory, which happens to be one of our favourite experiences in the city.

During a somewhat prolonged journey from snowy Boston to the far tip of Chile, American travel writer Paul Theroux found himself in a small town (really a thin road and a jumble of houses) at the edge of the Atacama Desert. He observed that “it was near enough to the end of the earth to give me the impression that I was a solitary explorer in a strange land.” It’s what nudged him onward. The Atacama itself is the driest location on earth. The atmosphere here is so thin as to make it almost Martian. But, and excuse us for the wry joke, it won’t be the air that leaves your breathless – but the staggering, raw fact that this rarefied location is the best place in the world to gaze at the canopy of stars that hang above us.

For an extremely on-it honeymoon in Chile there’s luscious Patagonia. At Black Tomato, our luxury tours and holidays in Chile consistently draw traveller’s attentions to this part of the world. Its scenery tugs at the eye, from the spectacular Grey Beach (looking out over the glassy ocean, a nest for the sharp blue bulks of ice that float, jagged, within it), to the astoundingly fantastical, knotty Lenga Forest. Our Chile luxury tours can help you to drink each of these uniquely beautiful locations up, whether you want to tackle them by kayak, bike, or on foot. Watching over you is Chile’s most iconic mountain – Cuernos del Paine.

Our luxury tours and holidays to Chile wouldn’t be complete (we insist) without visiting the country’s bountiful wine growing regions. The Maipo Valley is the second oldest wine region in the country, and hosts global, award-winning wineries such as Perez Cruz (imagine cracking open a bottle of Carmenere at the source). It’s quite possible (we’ve done it) to spend a full two days meandering from winery to winery. What’s more, our exclusive, luxury tour of the Casablanca Valley will give you a behind-the-curtains outlook on the truly magical grounds of the Catrala Vineyard. Luckily, their private chefs will keep you fed, soaking up all of that ‘grape juice.’

Top Locations in Chile

If we were asked to choose our top three places in Chile, we’d go for these.
Torres del Paine National Park, Chile

Torres del Paine

Embrace the untamed wilderness of Chile’s Patagonia.

In South America’s finest National Park, you’ll hike up to Laguna Azul, track puma’s off the beaten track and horseride through the wilderness. All the while returning to our most exclusive properties like Explora Patagonia. Nestled deep in the heart of Torres del Paine National Park with centre-stage views over Salto Chico river, sit back and relax at the lodge’s bath-house after a long day of glacier walking.

Sleep under the stars in the Atacama

Atacama Desert

Escape to the driest place on earth.

Take a moment to enjoy the peacefulness and natural beauty of San Pedro de Atacama. The atmosphere here is thin but the sheer vastness and clear skies makes it one of the best places in the world to gaze at the Milky Way. With Phillipe at your beck and call, you’ll head out in search of the flamingo filled waters at Los Flamencos National Reserve, the kaleidoscope of colours at Miscanti and Miñique lagoons and the many thermal pools that dot the landscape.

Colchagua Valley, Chile

Colchagua Valley

Indulge in the vino-culture of Chile’s wine country.

Famous for producing some of Chile’s best red wines like Cabernet, Carménère, Syrah and Malbec, Colchagua Valley, just south of Santiago is not to be missed, Whilst staying at the heart of the valley in Clos Apalta Residence, we’ll take you soaring above the rolling vineyards and orchards via hot air balloon as you uncover the secrets behind red wine production in this Latin American country.
