Travel Inspiration: Chile. South America’s Spine
Discover the many faces of Chile—from its Andean peaks, its vibrant cities, its dramatic desert, and its Patagonian wonderland—icebergs, glaciers, guanacos, and all.
During R. Crusoe’s 14-day customizable Chile. South America’s Spine travel itinerary, we explore Santiago, Viña del Mar, San Pedro de Atacama, and Torres del Paine.
Begin in Santiago, Chile’s capital city and a lively crossroads for all things Chilean: food, music, art, history. Founded in 1541 by conquistador Pedro de Valdivia, this has been Chile’s leading city since colonial times. At its center is a core of 19th-century neoclassical buildings and winding side streets dotted with art deco and neo-Gothic facades.
