South America was in the news with the Olympics taking place in Rio in Brazil in 2016, but Chile is the latest ‘hot’ destination.
Santiago, its capital city, is worth discovering with its mix of the colonial and the modern architecture is a good starting point. The new attractions of Chile, though, lie outside the capital. Sample some of the best wines of South America in the vineyards. Travel north into the Atacama Desert with its stunning landscapes and clear skies for star gazing. Journey south to the unspoilt fjords and lakes. For a truly special experience take a three day cruise along fjords and the Beagle Channel around Cape Horn to Ushuaia in Argentina.
