Wedged between the Pacific Ocean and the Andes mountains, Chile is an absolute paradise for lovers of the great outdoors. The long, narrow strip of land that reaches downwards towards the southern tip of the world is brimming with everything from active volcanoes to glistening lakes, damp forests, mountain peaks, beautiful beaches and the ice fields and glaciers of Patagonia.
There is no shortage of ways to enjoy Chile's vast natural landscapes. The country boasts the world's longest hiking and trekking trail as well as its longest coastline, where the beaches and waters are simply begging for surfers and sunbathers alike. Throw in skiing, kayaking, fishing, rafting, scuba-diving, biking, horseback-riding and much more.
Like Argentina and Uruguay, Chile's population hails from Spain and other European countries. In fact, less than 5% of its people are indigenous.
Chile's central valley is home to all of Chile's biggest cities, such as Santiago de Chile, a cultural hub blending colonial and modern structures.
