Why we love Chile
Deceptive Chile is South America’s trickster. Travel through Chile and you’ll be surprised by its chameleon-like abilities. One day you’ll be in a desert surrounded by nothingness, and the next day in a city of millions.
On a clear day in Santiago, Chile will have you scratching your head wondering “where did that massive mountain backdrop come from?”
Chile reveals itself to travellers slowly, and once the fog (or is that smog?) lifts, you’ll be amazed you didn’t visit sooner. Travel with Geckos and take on Pucon’s hills on a mountain bike, do your bit for the Chilean wine industry at Santiago’s late-night bars, see a working harbour in full flight at Punta Arenas and travel deep into the Atacama Desert on a rollicking 4x4 adventure.
Whatever you do, wherever you go, when travelling in Chile, expect the unexpected.
Everyone has the right to feel safe and secure on their trip. We don’t tolerate any form of sexual harassment at Peregrine and Geckos, either between passengers or involving our leaders or local operators. Sexual relationships (consensual or otherwise) between a leader and a passenger are unacceptable. If you ever feel another person is behaving inappropriately please inform us immediately by contacting the emergency contact number detailed in these trip notes.
