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.

Our tour leader, Manny Salorio, was with us every step of the way. He was compassionate, knowledgeable, and enthusiastic in going above and beyond his duties as a leader. He always shared his expertise and accompanied us on his suggested places for dinners, shopping and other activists. He made the trip very successful.

The trip was excillerating and full of adventure. We experienced things that we didn't know were possible. ”

We had a great time and it helped that the group got along so well. Our Guide Christian was well organised, reliable and liked by everyone. He was super efficient in getting us to our various destinations on time. He also knew lots of excellent restaurants so we were always sure of good meals. He managed to get the balance right between being very much part of the group but also standing back as well.

The various guides (Inca, Uyuni) were all very professional and friendly, in particular Sante (Inca). The drivers were also reliable. The only negative comments are regarding the hotel in La Paz and the dormitory on the last night in the desert before crossing from Bolivia to Chile. These were below the standards of the rest of the accommodation. I can be more forgiving of the dormitory but I think a better hotel could have been chosen in La Paz.”

Christian is a fantastic tour guide, always going above and beyond to help everyone in our group with their questions/needs etc.

The tour was excellent and thankfully great weather the entire trip. We really enjoyed it. ”

The Atacama Desert
The driest place on earth

The north of Chile is a vast expanse of parched lunar-like landscapes, epitomised by the Atacama Desert west of the Andes mountains. The rocky terrain is punctuated by salt lakes and eerie abandoned mining towns with wide-stretched and unbelievably clear skies ideal for stargazing when darkens descends. Discover this incredible scenery with our range of tours.

Recommended places to visit in Chile

The narrow sliver of a country that is Chile encompasses a surprising wealth of diversity when it comes to landscapes from the driest of deserts to the most perfect-looking of volcanoes and rugged mountains. Discover the best of Chile with our selection of top picks:

Santiago

View on map

Comprised of dozens of thriving districts from the glitzy business areas to the more bohemian spots, Chile's capital of Santiago offers a diverse cultural landscape made even more appealing by the impressive natural backdrop of snowcapped mountains. It's also a city with its fair share of colonial architecture, interesting museums, vibrant markets and excellent restaurants.

San Pedro de Atacama

View on map

Sat amidst beautiful mountains in Chile's northern altiplano, the village of San Pedro de Atacama is the perfect base for exploring the numerous natural beauties that decorate the region from the dazzling salt flats to the otherworldly Valley of the Moon and the hugely impressive Tatio Geysers. These incredible landscapes are made even more so when you consider that San Pedro has not seen a drop of water since records began.

Torres del Paine

View on map

The dramatic snow-capped mountains and brilliant blue waters of Torres del Paine National Park are just some of the reasons why this should be on every South American itinerary. The park sits in the southern region of the Andes mountains and is home to some of the most stunning hiking routes in the world as well as a diverse selection of wildlife and a number of natural wonders including waterfalls and glaciers.

Punta Arenas

View on map

Situated in the far south of Chile, Punta Arenas makes the perfect base for intrepid explorers looking to venture in and around the Tierra del Fuego archipelago. The city itself is an appealing place, the streets buzzing with activity, particularly in its giant tax-free shopping zone. Another must-see is the cemetery, often acclaimed as one of the most beautiful in the world.

Arica

View on map

Located on the coast in the far north of the country, the tranquil city of Arica enjoys sunshine year-round and is a popular resort with Chileans and their nearby Peruvian neighbours. It's here that you'll find the fascinating, if not rather creepy, Chinchorro mummies, which have been preserved for millennia and are now on display in the Archaeological Museum of San Miguel de Azapa.
