Lace up your walking boots and explore the great outdoors in this nature wonderland
According to the Chilean legend, when God made the wonders of the world, he realised that he had some spare bits left over. He had bits of glistening rivers and verdant valleys, of towering glaciers and arid deserts, of snow-capped mountain peaks, pristine forests and wild meadows. But instead of allowing all this beauty to go to waste, he picked them all up and distributed them all in a thin strip of earth at the end of the world, and so created this extraordinary country. Today, these spare parts are some of the most visited in the region; the Mars-like Atacama Desert, the shimmering Lake District, the chiseled peaks of Patagonia and, tucked away in the Pacific ocean, the enigmatic Moai statues of Easter Island.
