from the vast salt-flats in the north, to European-feeling

Chile is situated in South America, bounded by
Peru, Bolivia, Argentina, the Antarctic and the Pacific Ocean.
Home of the Andes mountain range, it is a thin ribbon of land,
2,610 miles long and nowhere more than 115 miles wide.
Because of its unusual geography, Chile has a
hugely varied climate ranging from the world's driest desert in
the world - the Atacama, stretching for 621 miles, with areas
where rainfall has never been recorded, through a Mediterranean
climate in the centre, to a snow-prone Alpine climate in the
south. Travelers can enjoy the country's abundant fauna and
flora and spectacular scenery consisting of huge glaciers,
fjords, waterfalls, blue lakes and numerous national parks where
trekking is a very popular activity amongst tourists.
