Chile occupies a long and narrow strip of land, between the Pacific Ocean and the Andes. It borders Argentina to the east, Peru to the north, Bolivia to the northeast and the Drake Passage in the south. Due to its length, the country boasts many diverse landscapes, climates and an amazing wildlife. The mountains in Chile offer a diverse array of activities such as ski touring, splitboarding and ice climbing in the winter to mountaineering, horse riding and rafting.
Santiago, the capital, is a cosmopolitan and vibrant city, while much of the territory in the rest of the country is sparsely populated. The Atacama, the world’s driest desert, is located in the north of the country. Chile is also renowned for its exceptional wines.
It is relatively temperate and pleasant all year round, although temperatures can get quite cold at night during winter, specially in the mountains.
