Chile Tours and Holidays

Explore Chile with On The Go Tours

The country of Chile stretches over half of the South American continent, from the world’s driest desert to the massive glacial fields of Patagonia. Along the way you’ll find perfectly-shaped volcanoes, impressive geysers, snow-capped mountains and gorgeous lakes. However, there's more to Chile than untouched nature and outdoor adventure with hospitable people, a world-class wine culture and colourful modern cities.

Highlights of our trips to Chile

The Atacama Desert: A real highlight of our Chile tours is the Atacama Desert. Positioned amongst spectacular scenery of desert and altiplano in northern Chile, the small oasis village of San Pedro de Atacama is the tourist centre of the region and the gateway to the incredible Valley of the Moon, Chile's largest salt flat, the Salar de Atacama, and the steaming Tatio geysers.

Patagonia: At the very tip of the country is Chile's portion of Patagonia, a vast wind-swept land home to the unforgettable Torres del Paine National Park and the penguin colonies of Isla Magdelena and Seno Otway. Explore Torres del Paine National Park on our 14-day Santiago to Patagonia private tour of Chile.
