If you are looking for adventure, you are sure to find it in Chile. Maybe you are an avid skier but your travel partner prefers fun in the sun at the beach; no worries, both of you can enjoy your chosen activities, and all within the same day.
Situated on the Pacific Ocean side of South America, with Peru to the north and Bolivia and Argentina to the west, Chile is approximately 2,880 miles (4,506 km) long, but averages only about 110 miles (180 km) in width.
Thanks to this unusual geography, it is possible to hit the slopes in the renowned Andes mountains in the morning, and after a short drive of about an hour and a half, enjoy the afternoon sipping cool drinks and soaking up the sun at the beach. However, for the adventure seeker, Chile offers much more than just skiing and beach fun. From desert in the north to arctic glaciers in the south, there are nearly unlimited possibilities available to the adventure traveler.
