Chile has a unique shape - a narrow strip of land running between the Pacific Ocean and the Andes Mountains. To the north, her neighbors are Peru and Bolivia, and to the  east - across the Andes, lies Argentina.

Chile is comprised of different contrasting territories:

 
Chilean PatagoniaThe
Chilean Patagonia is noted for its landscape of outstanding beauty and is one of the last pristine regions of the planet.  A zone with magnificent national parks, declared a world biosphere reserve, famous for its profusion of wild life within a spectacular environment - surrounded by breathtaking mountains, channels, glaciers and lakes.  We take you on tours here, and in the Argentine Patagonia!

Patagonia is synonymous with vast landscapes, adventure, uniqueness, and remoteness - a land of unpolluted beauty and loneliness...   A place where nature has been generous - where enormous mountains, valleys, channels, islands, and glaciers are parts of surroundings that fascinates the voyager who is seeking to get in touch with the purity of nature.  Visiting Patagonia is a unique privilege for its visitors, and it is here that the Skorpios fleet gives all the quality service and over 25-years of experience with cruises to the Northern and Southern Ice Fields of the Chilean Patagonia...

As we were saying earlier, Chile is comprised of different contrasting territories:

Chile Travel & Tours - Church
The extreme north has the brown
Atacama Desert with places where no rain has ever been recorded. The Southeast region features imposing glacier fields and lush green forests. The snowcapped Andes form the eastern border, and Pacific Ocean is the western border.

Chile Travel & Tours - Atacama Desert Sand Dunes 
The Atacama Desert
holds amazing archaeological remnants: 10,000 year-old mummies, huge petroglyphs, and Rupestrian paintings. A wide range of wild fauna and natural phenomena abound in its national parks.
 

Chile Travel & Tours - Easter Island Statues
Easter Island
, a far-flung and lonely island, situated in the middle of the Pacific Ocean, features a real outdoor museum - the cradle of an enigmatic civilization whose origins are still unknown.
 

  
Santiago
, the nation's capital, is in the Central Region, noted for its fertile valleys.  The region features vast vineyards, giving birth to some of the best wines in the world - and some of the best snow skiing in the world is close at hand.
