Seasoned travellers have heard the phrase ‘UNESCO World Heritage Site’ countless times. They know that it usually applies to the most breath-taking areas of natural beauty and the most impressive places of historical interest. But what does this coveted title really mean? And what is there to see in Chile that proudly claims to be in this elite group of the very best tourist spots of the world?
There is no place quite like Chile, literally.
This long and narrow country which snakes down the side of Argentina in South America unifies contrasting climates and terrains, which feel like they should be worlds apart. The snow-capped peaks of the Andes are only a few hours from the Pacific coastline, and the dry desert of Atacama in the north of Chile contrasts massively from the frozen Patagonian fjords in the south.
Its complex topography and impressive length (2,670 miles from top to bottom), make Chile the most incredible place to visit, as it offers an incredible array of different places to explore and adventures to cross off the bucket-list.
Here is a list of the unmissable experiences and most spectacular places to visit in Chile.
After all the frenetic preparations for the wedding and the incredible day itself, it’s time to start your adventure together with an adventure! Check out these beauty spots to see why you should choose Chile for a honeymoon you’ll be able to tell the grandkids about.
