Chile Named "Best International Adventure Hub" by Outside Magazine.

(back to blog)

Our Chilean guide Andres recently drew our attention to an accolade his country just won: Outside Magazine has named Chile the "Best International Adventure Hub" for 2015. Every year this award-winning publication highlights the best places around the world to eat, drink, sleep and find adventure, whatever your travel style.

We learned a few fun geographical facts about Chile that we didn't know before reading the article:

• Measuring 4270 km from top to bottom, Chile is one of the longest north-south countries in the world.
• It's also the skinniest, with an average width of only 177km.
• It has seven distinct climate zones, ranging from sub-tropical to polar!
• 80% of the country is covered by mountains, the Andes.
• It's home to the world's highest, driest desert, the Atacama.

Anyone who has seen photos of some of Chile's famed landscapes can understand why adventurers would be drawn here. The Torres del Paine in Patagonia create a staggering skyline unlike anything else on earth; stargazing in the Atacama reveals some of the starriest night skies you'll ever see; you can explore the mysteries of the Moai on Rapa Nui (Easter Island); drink rich red wine produced in the fertile valleys near Valparaiso, and gaze at the majesty of snow-capped volcanoes in the Lakes District.

Everywhere you go in Chile, from Patagonia in the south to Arica in the north - and even to Easter Island, 3500km out to sea - you'll find ToursByLocals guides, eager to help you explore their fascinating homeland.
