There is an incredible amount to see on your holidays in Chile's five regions. In the North you’ll find the Atacama desert and the Andean Highlands. Central Chile features the main cities, along with several vineyards and ski resorts. Southern Chile features lakes, rivers and the famous Chiloé Island, where you’ll find hundreds of wooden churches built by the 16th century Spanish. Western Patagonia is found in the extreme South.
