Astonishing mountains, breathtaking deserts, and Instagram-worthy base camps. This is where the pumas roam.

Chile is where the Andes Mountains meet the Atacama Desert. It's sparsely populated, hardly explored, and wild beyond imagination. Often referred to as Patagonia, the term was coined by Magellan in 1520 to describe the native people that his crew thought to be giants. One look at the mountains of the region and you'll agree—the term fits the landscape well.


The extremes of Chile are renowned from the expanses of the arid Atacama desert to the mountains of Patagonia. We've scoured the country for the best way for you to explore them.


Two sensational base camps in Patagonia are our absolute favorites. They serve as your launchpad for adventure in Chile: Awasi Patagonia and EcoCamp Patagonia. Each offers outstanding guides, stunning accommodations, and an abundance of activities. Imagine a day spent hiking Torres del Paine National Park, tracking the elusive puma, and dining on tapas as the sun sets. Are you ready?
