There’s nowhere quite like Chile: it’s immense length – over 5000km – means that it encompasses almost every climatic zone from the driest desert on earth to perfect wine country to temperate rainforest to sub-Antarctic tundra. A walking holiday in Chile can reveal every one of these aspects while enjoying some dramatic scenery including perfect volcanic cones rising from azure lakes and some truly lunar landscapes in the Atacama Desert.
The deep south is a different world, and some of the best trekking holidays in Chile make for the unforgettable Towers of Paine (Torres del Paine), sheer pillars of rock which have to be seen to be believed. But not difficult to reach – a daywalk will take you to the base of the Towers.
An excellent way to round off a trekking holiday in Chile would be to visit Easter Island, one of the most isolated places on earth and home to the iconic Moai statues.

A fantastic week in Tuscany, the family who ran the Agriturismo were delightful and could not be more friendly, considerate and helpful. The accommodation is fairly basic,but clean and comfortable (as expected). We were worried prior to the trip about the weather, but it turned out to be sunny most of the week! The itinery was just amazing, varied and with some quite incredible walks; especially the last day hiking up Monte Sumbra – unforgetable! The walking group was a great cross section of people, and many laughs were had over the week…..all I can say is it is a ‘must do’ trip!
Walks well paced and enjoyable. Guide ensured excellent teamwork. However, due to unseasonal heavy rains the accommodation was unsatisfactory. Despite several requests the owner of the farmhouse refused to turn on any heating. This not only made our nights uncomfortably cold, but gave no opportunity for our wet clothing, bath towels, etc., to dry. In addition we were unable to sit outside and there was no communal area inside to gather. The swimming pool was not ready for our use. I contacted Candice who though sympathetic, was unable to resolve the situation.
We hiked with a fabulous, congenial and like-minded group. We all got on so well. Our comradery made the trip fun and stimulating. The Villa Casalta is an odd place. Exodus needs to do a site visit or just scrap this villa and look elsewhere.
