For every traveler it is a luxury to be able to have the Chilean stamp in your passport. So here we are going to prepare you by mentioning some of the most important tourist places in Chile.

1. Easter Island

Let’s start with one of the greatest charms and peculiarities of Chile. Easter Island, called the second most distant populated territory in the world, being located in the Pacific Ocean, for which it is considered part of the Oceania continent despite being Chilean territory.

Discovered in 1722, it receives its name because the day of its discovery was precisely Easter, which has made it one of the tourist sites in Chile.

It is an excellent destination to enjoy the Rapa Nui artistic manifestations, known as ‘The moai’. During February, the largest Polynesian culture festival in the world takes place, which combined with the incredible landscapes of the island, is an experience of a lifetime.

2. Santiago de Chile

The capital cannot be missing among the tourist parts of Chile. Founded in 1541 and divided into 37 communes, it is the cradle of the main buildings, offices and political and economic establishments in the country.

Thus, it is an obligatory stop to get to know the true movement of the country, get closer to its culture, a little of its traditions and, above all, observe the influence of the modern world on Chileans.

In addition, this city is among the capitals with the best quality of life in the world, thanks to a wide variety of academic offers, a solid economy and a fairly good cultural and artistic offer.

3. Elqui Valley

One of the places to vacation in Chile will always be Valle del Elqui. This basin, created in the mountain range, has one of the most emblematic rivers of the fluvial life of the country.

The name Valle del Elqui comes from Quechua and means “thin”, alluding to the way in which the youngest and weakest children of the group were classified.

This has to do with the fact that the flow of the river is generally quite weak, until spring, when the melting of the mountain ranges begins.

Thanks to its proximity to the river waters and the mountain ranges, it is a tremendously fertile land with great greenery. For this reason, between the walks you cannot miss out on a tour of the vine and papaya fields.

A lovely activity will be hiking through the green plains in the middle of spring.

Check out this video below that captures fantastic shots of this place:

4. Elqui Valley Observatories

Continuing in this valley, among the tourist attractions of Chile is the Elqui Valley Observatory.

And it is that its privileged location in the mountain range, away from the city and rather connected with nature, allows the skies of the valley to remain clear. The weather is also a plus point.

For this reason, the Mamalluca Tourist Observatory and the Cerro Tololo Observatory take place here.
