Let me give you an overview of the places I visited between Santiago and the Peruvian border and all the stuff you can do there. Valparaiso and Viña del Mar I’m

Do you want a top tip for a landscape highlight in Northern Chile that is not yet completely overrun by tourists? Of course you do. Here we go: The Laguna Roja near Iquique! Well, I say near.

San Pedro de Atacama itself really hasn’t all that much to offer. The reason why everyone is going there regardless is that it’s the gateway to Chile’s Atacama desert, one of the country’s most popular destinations. No question that I took the first chance to go there myself! From hitting all the outstanding nature spots to more active stuff like sand boarding,

When I had a few days off between my stay in Santiago and flying to the Atacama, I knew immediately I wanted to spend it on the coast.

Nele/ December 19, 2017/ Destinations/ 0 comments

Today, however, I want to concentrate on everything travel-related that happened in 2017. There was a lot, and some of it represented long-existent travel goals. Let’s take a look at my 2017
