Trips by Destination


Chile is a country sandwiched between the dramatic Andes and the Pacific Ocean, stretching from the Atacama Desert in the north, to Patagonia and Torres del Paine in the south. The best biking is along the Central coast region, where fertile valleys dotted with haciendas, pretty villages, and vineyards await. A mix of European and indigenous influences, not to mention stunning hotels and world-class wines, make Chile an exotic and rewarding destination.

Hotel Residencia, Marchique

This 18th century former Jesuit monastery boasts comfortable rooms in a quiet setting, and a fine restaurant with Chilean and international dishes. You won’t want to leave!
