Flights to Chile
The flavour of Chile is hot, spicy and enticing, so from when you first arrive on your cheap flights to Chile from BudgetAir, you will be amazed at the energy and sounds of this South American country. Spring, which is September to November, and autumn, March and April, are the best seasons to take flights to Chile because of the less extreme climates at those times of year.
A thin strip of land that runs almost half the length of the continent, Chile ranges from having some of the driest desert in the world to stormy Tierra del Fuego at the southern tip squashed between the Pacific and Atlantic Oceans. Those flights to Chile can drop you off anywhere along the way to experience snow-capped volcanoes or mesmerising seaports with inhabitants of pelicans and sea lions.
For travellers on flights to Chile it is the geography of this fascinating country that is often the draw. Many flock to the two national parks in the Pacific – the Juan Fernandez Islands and Easter Island. Robinson Crusoe Island is part of the former and is often inundated with those seeking treasure, while the unnerving giant statues, or moai, of which there are about 600, remain elusive as they gaze out to sea from their spot on Easter Island.
A country of extreme contrasts Chile offers visitors an amazing combination of the dry deserts of the Atacama, sky scraping Andean mountains and beautiful blue seas stroking sugary soft sands. The capital Santiago offers a modern metropolitan bustle to rival any major city but it’s out in the wild that Chile really comes into its own; rugged and heartbreakingly beautiful, the changing landscapes will challenge all your previously held notions of what things can look like without airbrushing.
Areas to see in Chile
- San Pedro de Atacama, home to Death Valley, is characterised by sculpted sandstone canyons, flamingo-dotted salt flats, lively geysers, hot springs, volcanic peaks and other worldly rock formations that amaze hikers, bikers and riders as they explore this amazing place.
- Vina del Mar offers pretty, un-crowded beaches and a gentle almost Mediterranean feeling climate that is ideal for some seaside R&R.
- Deep in the Patagonian Andes, Pucon is a picture perfect town ideal as a base for adventures; watch molten magma ooze down Mount Villarrica, dive between hot and cold thermal pools or take the reins of a Criollo to explore the Andes on horseback.
Must see spots in Chile
Once you have disembarked from your flights Chile has the Lake District to entice you. There are 12 lakes, magnificent waterfalls and wonderful hot springs to warm the soul. Scattered throughout with welcoming towns, you could spend your whole holiday here and still want more at the end.
Other sights to see after flights to Chile are the island of Chiloe with a national park and glorious beaches, the Parque Nacional Torres del Paine with challenging trekking at the end of the Andes, bohemian Valparaiso with a Mediterranean climate, and nearby Vina del Mar, one of South America’s most fashionable seaside resorts.
