Bring your adventures in Chile to life by calling Designer Active Holidays!

Chile's features vary from the dry and rugged areas in the north, which include the Atacama Desert, to the relative rural farm and grazing land of the south, peppered with volcanoes and mountains.  The southern coast features amazing islands, rivers, fjords, and canals.

In terms of tourism, one of the main features is the 6,400+ miles of coastline.  The country is roughly divided into a few main zones (largely based on climate and features).
 

ZONA AUSTRAL

This is the the most southern zone in Chile and boasts Torres del Paine National Park, which makes it the most active zone for adventure travel in all of Chile. 

The large number of rivers, islands, and fjords make it a great place to boat, sail, kayak, or otherwise, enjoy the water on a watercraft.  White-water kayaking, in particular, is extremely popular, with some of the most difficult rivers in the world being located here.  

Hiking, cycling, and fishing are also extremely popular.
 

NORTE GRANDE

This is a region that features a large number of beach resorts, as well as the Atacama Desert. 

Ocean water sports are common, including swimming, surfing, boating, parasailing, and fishing.  There are also plenty of geologic features to see in and around the desert, but they are often best seen on horseback or by car due to the extreme temperatures and low humidity throughout much of the year.
 

NORTE CHICO

This is the other northern region of Chile.  It is highly populated with volcanoes and the Andes Mountains.  It should come as no surprise that mountain climbing and amongst other outdoor activities are extremely popular in this region. 

As with Norte Grande, beach-related activities are also a highlight for many tourists.  There are geyser fields, lush and fertile valleys where wine is made, and vibrant cities with history, culture, festivals, and traditions.
 

ZONA CENTRAL

In the central region of Chile is Zona Central.  This includes the capital, Santiago, as well as many of the mountainous regions.  The climate here is cooler, and it is the most popular region of Chile for winter sports, with several dozen ski resorts, including some of the international renown, including Portillo, Valle Nevado, and Termas de Chillan. 

There’s plenty of coastal life here too, with many beaches and coastal activities, along with nearly 200 heritage sites maintained by the National Monuments Council in Santiago.  And the Central Market in Santiago is a can’t-miss.
 

ZONA SUR

This region is to the south, and features Chilean Patagonia, the Seven Lakes region and many national parks. This is a great region for hiking, fishing, camping, horseback riding, and ecotourism, with many lake resorts and campgrounds sprinkled throughout the area.  And, of course, there are mountains and volcanoes here as well, so you can get a little taste of everything on your outdoor active holiday adventure.
 

ZONA AUSTRAL

This is the the most southern zone in Chile and is the most active zone for adventure travel in all of Chile. 

The large number of rivers, islands, and fjords make it a great place to boat, sail, kayak, or otherwise, enjoy the water on a watercraft.  White-water kayaking, in particular, is extremely popular, with some of the most difficult rivers in the world being located here.
