Once you’ve wandered Santiago’s elegant squares and interesting museums, and backed a horse at the Club Hipico racetrack, your attention quickly turns to its snow-capped Andes backdrop. It’s an ever-present reminder that Chile is a country of unique landscapes. Whether you’re hiking the forests of Torres del Paine National Park or cruising pristine fjords, a journey into Patagonia is a life-affirming blast of roaring falls, wildlife reserves and jagged mountain peaks. Walk the catwalks of the Perito Moreno Glacier and get up close to one of the world’s last advancing glaciers on an escorted tour with Cosmos.
