South America

This year, Chile is set to be one of the most popular travel destinations in the world. Located in South America, Chile offers travelers heartwarming sun rises in the Andes, extreme sports and relaxing sunsets near the coast — all in one day. These are just a few of the reasons Chile should be at the top of your 2022 travel list:

 

Strong COVID-19 Protocols

South America has one of the highest vaccination rates in the world with 92 percent of the Chilean population fully vaccinated. Thanks to the vaccinations, social distancing and mask requirements, most places in Chile, such as bars, clubs, restaurants and more, reopened their doors. All indoor social gatherings require proof of vaccination to make tourists and locals feel extra safe.

 

World Renowned Destinations

For the sixth consecutive year, the World Travel Awards named Chile Best Adventure Tourism Destination. Conguillio Park has been highlighted by travelers as one of the most beautiful forest destinations in the world. The park offers great hiking trails and sees spectacular preservation efforts. The Atacama Desert has also been recognized for its beauty and clear skies.

 

Unique Natural Events

When travelers explore Chile from north to south, they may experience some of the most unique natural events in the world. Between September and November, the more than 200 native flower species bloom across the Atacama Desert, covering the desert in fields of purple. Chile also possesses 76 percent of South America’s glaciers. Occasionally travelers can view the enormous Balmaceda Glacier at Bernardo O’Higgins National Park.

 

Astrotourism

Chile is considered one of the best places to see the stars and constellations because of clear skies and unique weather conditions all year long. In the heart of the Atacama Desert, travelers can view the stars in any of its 27 tourist observations.

 

Vineyards

Known for producing some of the finest wines in the world, wine lovers can visit up to 13 different vineyards with some of the most delicious wines in South America. In 2022, travelers can enjoy a more intimate experience by walking through the extensive vineyards, enjoying delicious barbecue and more.
