Chile, home to deserts and snow covered volcanoes, is a fascinating country that is perfect for a unique family holiday.

Chile is a fascinating country, with a remarkable geographical setting. It stretches from the southern tip of South America to Peru at its northern end, and borders the Pacific Ocean along its entire western length and the Andes mountain range in the east.

This Spanish-influenced country is a delightful destination for a family holiday, and because it doesn’t rank highly as one of the most popular destinations for Britons travelling abroad, it still offers a unique sense of escapism that isn’t easily found elsewhere. You can lose yourselves in some of the country’s fantastic wild landscape, or enjoy the pleasures of the many beaches on the Pacific coastline.

Santiago is the vibrant capital city with plenty to offer families on holiday. Not only does it offer some fantastic days out, but it is also the hotbed of the country’s cultural celebrations, with major National Festivals filling the streets every couple of months. One of the most popular celebrations is the Fiesta del Cuasimodo, a unique celebration that sees cowboys and Catholic priests parade through the streets and visit those in need or suffering from infirmities. It’s a very public celebration and tourists are always welcomed to join in the fun.

The best time to visit Chile depends on which region of the country you’re heading to. The north has some very barren parts with desert landscapes that have never received any rain but does get temperatures that often reach well over 100 degrees Fahrenheit. At the opposite end of the country, you can experience distinct seasons, enjoying hot summers and cold winters, but bear in mind that winter time south of the equator is between June and August, and the height of the summer comes just after Christmas time.


Things to do in Chile with Children

Chile offers plenty of outdoor activities that will have the whole family enjoying the country at its best, and a great way to see the splendour of this stunning countryside, is to get out on horseback. If you’re travelling with older children, head over to Santiago, where you can all enjoy a full day’s riding in the foothills of the Andes. You’ll gallop across the valley’s, dodge cacti and feast on a traditional cowboy style BBQ before returning to the stables and being driven back to your hotel.

Family fun that has no age limit can be enjoyed in the local markets, known as Artisanas. These local gathering points are a hive of activity and offer a fantastic opportunity to buy those all important souvenirs for friends back home. Sample local cuisine from the street vendors and sip a beer on a warm day while your children play with their locally crafted, and traditional, Chilean toys.

Get back to nature with a visit to the Conguillio National Park, which has delighted children for years. This beautiful natural habitat is home to abundant Araucaria Trees (Monkey Puzzle Trees), a volcano with a perpetually smoking top, and lakes which offer a variety of water sports and swimming. The whole family will enjoy a day here, trekking and cycling or enjoying a picnic.
