A TWO WEEKS HOLIDAY ITINERARY TO CHILE SHARED BY TATIENNE

15 NIGHTS / 6 STOPS 

Stunning sceneries from north to south and pristine nature all in a single country



Tatienne is Belgian. A young dynamic woman in her late twenties, she works for a law office in Brussels. She considers every holiday an opportunity to escape a hectic work life and is lucky to have many friends willing to join her in crisscrossing the world: discovering new cultures, sharing quality time and reveling in beautiful nature are key ingredients of each vacation. Since she considers herself past the age of backpacking and of harsher holidays conditions she now seeks a modicum of comfort but, even more importantly, strives to be in contact with local people. That aspect makes her look for authenticity and variety when choosing accommodation.
Tatienne and her friend Sasha, both 28, planned a two-week trip to Chile in order to visit another girlfriend who had moved there for work. The exceptional geographical features of Chile, a long and narrow country stretching from Perú to Argentina (Cape Horn), with a 4,300 kilometer-long coast and an average width of 180 km, allows the traveler to discover an unbelievable variety of landscapes. That means there are plenty of things to do during a two-week trip that will take you from the desert in the north to amazing forests, mountains and lakes in the south, passing through all possible climates in one single country. During you visit you will also enjoy different scenes, alternating from a funky party atmosphere in Valparaíso, Santiago and Pucone to cosy mountain evenings around a pit fire, tasting different kinds of great cheese, ham and wine.

GOOD TO KNOW


  • This trip can be easily adapted for a family. As you move often from one place to another, it would be more suitable for kids aged 8 years and more.
  • Beware of heights sickness in certain areas.
  • If possible try to extend this trip to a 3 weeks trip to explore Patagonia in the south of the country
  • November to February is the best period to explore Chile.
  • This is an expensive country and prices would be similar to European prices
  • Especially San Pedro de Atacama is pretty touristy and expensive. Try to organise it yourselves outside of the touristy tours.
  • We had no safety issue, even-though we  were two girls travelling alone. Of course you need to be careful in the cities as in any big city. Never take a taxi alone!
  • The transfers per coach or plane were very easy to plan and organize. The domestic airline company was very efficient and good (LATAM or SKY)
  • We booked all our hotels through booking.com
