The very words “Chile and Easter Island” conjure up thoughts of mystery and antiquity.  A ribbon of land between the Pacific Ocean and the Andes, Chile is a country of geographic variety and spectacular beauty.  It is bounded in the north by the highest and driest desert on Earth, in the east by the mighty Andes mountain chain and in the south by the snow and glacier fields of Patagonia, the End of the World. Explore charming coastal towns, fertile vineyards and the lake district. Add mystical Easter Island 3,500 km from anywhere, with its mysterious moai sculptures and archaeological sites, and you have one of the world’s most fascinating destinations.
