Introducing Chile

Chile is one of the most naturally and culturally diverse places in the world, stretching 2,500 miles across Andean peaks, dramatic coastline, and the otherworldly Atacama Desert. Along the way, you’ll find award-winning wineries in the Colchagua Valley and the bohemian enclave of Valparaiso—not to mention Santiago de Chile, one of South America’s most dynamic cities. 

When is the best time to visit?
Visit during Chile’s spring in September, October, or November to see the country come alive with color or during their fall, which happens March through May. Many attractions are closed during their winter season in July and August.

Where to go in Chile?
Stargaze in the Southern Hemisphere’s clearest skies, ski or snowboard in the Andes, explore the iconic statues of Easter Island, explore the colorful streets of Valparaiso, watch the sunset over the dunes of the Atacama Desert, and soak in the deeply azure fjords where the mountains drop dramatically straight to the water.

How many days do I need?
Travelers should really take their time and try not to rush through Chile. 10 days might even feel like too few, so if possible at least 2 weeks is best.

This was my first time in South America and Chile, and also my first time as a solo traveler. Mery put together a fantastic and thorough 15 day itinerary for me in Chile covering all the highlights and more that I had not thought off. I am grateful and privileged to have covered so much of Chile in such a short amount of time. All credit for this goes to Mery and her team.

The tours that were arranged were on-time, professional and very informative. The guides, whilst mainly catering to Spanish speaking passengers, also took the time and patience to explain the same to me in English.

I was also impressed with the accommodation that was booked, it felt like someone had really thought about the location and quality of the places. The accommodation in the various towns/cities was centrally located, close to shops and restaurants and very comfortable.

The highlights of the trip were the San Pedro de Atacama desert (would recommend the Altiplanics Lake tours, Laguna Cejar, Moon Valley tour & the Night Sky tour) which has so many varying and unique landscapes. Patagonia including the Torres del Paine national park and Balmaceda/Serrano glaciers are a must see, these are truly spectacular.

Overall a very well organised and thought out trip, that exceeded my expectations. Thank you for putting this together and ensuring I had a great experience. Would not hesitate to recommend kimkim/Say Hueque again.

My two trips within Chile which were organised by Oxana were fantastic.The first was a full day outing from Santiago , where our fantastic guide Paolo led a very memorable and stunning day hike in the El Morado national monument and then we had a soak in the hot springs topped offwith a picnic watching the land changing colours in the sunset. Then I had 3nights in San Pedro de Atacama, an amazing place. Oxana organised my transfers from Calama , a great hotel and two full days of experiencing that wondrous region. I found Kimkim to be very helpful, responsive and flexible when I had an issue I unexpectedly needed to resolve which required their understanding. I highly recommend Kimkim.
