The longest, thinnest country in the world, Chile is a land of extremes and staggering beauty, from the surreal and bewitching red desert landscape of the north to the extraordinary granite peaks and glaciers of the south. Chile squeezes an extraordinarily diverse range of landscapes into its long frame, from the world's driest desert through rolling vineyards, past snow-dusted volcanoes down to the dramatic granite peaks of Torres del Paine and the magical Isla de Chiloé. With Easter Island only five hours away by air, you can see why Chile is such a compelling destination.
Chile's capital Santiago lies in the centre, in one of the most fertile regions of the world. From here you can head south to Chile's Lake District where glittering blue lakes are interspersed by waterfalls and thermal hot springs, edged by the Andes. Even further south is Patagonia and Chile's most famous national park, Torres del Paine, where vast granite towers plummet to a dramatic valley of lakes, waterfalls, glaciers and icebergs. In total contrast, thousands of miles north is the Atacama Desert. This magical place is most beautiful at sunrise and sunset when the surfaces and sky appear to turn orange, crimson and gold. During the day, explore its geysers, lunar landscape valleys and salt lakes; at night the skies are littered with thousands of stars. From here you can head west to the remote Easter Island, 3,200km off the coast of Chile and one of the most isolated places on Earth.

Debbie loves exploring the World, but Africa is her true passion and she know it intimately. Her favourite travel memory is sitting in a canoe on Lake Kariba, Zimbabwe watching the sun go down behind the Matusadona Mountains whilst listening to the sound of hippos splashing around us. Next on her list is Vietnam as it has several of the world's top beaches along with an amazing history, world heritage sites and fabulous cuisine. It's also really easy to see a lot in Vietnam in a very short time.
