30 Photos That Prove Chile Is Insanely Epic

Last updated on: 22 Comments

If you want to explore a country that has it all, you better book a flight to Chile.

Beaches, mountains, art, history, glaciers, lakes, deserts and cuisine – no matter what your interests are, you’ll be sure to find pure happiness in Chile.

The diversity of this South American nation can’t be ignored, and the geography that separates it from the rest of the continent makes it just like an island.

You have the Atacama Desert in the north, the Andes Mountains running down its eastern border, and the remote ruggedness of Patagonia occupying the bottom section. Throw in a stunning coastline of long beaches and ridiculous fjords, and you have a recipe for pure awesomeness.

We spent over 3 months travelling in Chile, from the southern tip of Patagonia, to the legendary Easter Island, and all the way to the northern stretches in the driest place on earth. It’s a country that blew our minds and captured our hearts.

Make no mistake, this place should be near the top of your bucket list. Here are 30 photos of Chile that prove it is insanely epic!

    Amazing pictures! Totally love the sunrise in Puerto Varas. It is totally worth waking up for. I have been to Chile for over two months and agree with everything you said here. It is an amazing country to travel to, and Chile’s Patagonia is such a gem.

      Alesha And Jarryd

      Thank you so much Julie. We totally agree with waking up for sunrise in Puerto Varas is so worth it. Glad you are having a great trip. Happy travels. 🙂

      Thanks so much buddy! Chile is damn spectacular, and we can’t wait to get back one day! Hope you’re doing well brother.

    That volcano shot is just perfect! And also, those tents – that’s how I want to sleep when I camp from now on 🙂

      Alesha And Jarryd

      Thanks so much Jane. Eco Camp is a beautiful place to stay in Torres del Paine National Park. So magical.

    Zascha

    I’m in love with these photos! We would definitely need a guide to Chile, I’m not sure I’d be able to visit all of these amazing places and it really looks like the best of both worlds! There’s cold scenery and hot ones too!

      Alesha And Jarryd

      Thank you so much Zascha. It is an amazing place to travel. Don’t miss it off your travel list.

    Pieter

    Waauw! Spending 6 months in west-South america next year,(South->nord) but wasn’t planning a long time in Chile except Patagonia… might re consider itineray.

      Alesha And Jarryd

      Hey Pieter, do check out Atacama Desert. It is a beautiful place. You can rent a van through Soulvans Rental. They were awesome and you can camp for free around place. Just take your rubbish with you. Hope you have a blast. there is so much to see in Chile, you could easily spend 3 months there travelling continuously.

    Stephanie

    Love these photos! Headed there in November & am having endless dilemmas about how little I can fit in during my two weeks

      Alesha And Jarryd

      Thank you so much. We hope you had a great time. It is an amazing country to travel and great for a road trip too. Maybe concentrate on either north or south, don’t do both in 2 weeks. The country is too long and you’ll will spend most of your time in travelling. All the best
