Chile Independent Holidays
If you want to enjoy some of the freedom of a fly-drive, but would like to enhance your experience by including excursions and transfers with local knowlegable guides, or you simply do not wish to drive, we still have a large selection of options available to you with our collection of independent touring holidays.
Local transport in Chile is reasonably priced, but outside of the main cities of Santiago and Valparaiso, it can be awkward to plan around. While the country has a strong historic association with the railways, many lines now lie overgrown and abandoned, meaning the non-driving population is heavily reliant on the bus and ferry networks to move about. These are generally quite reliable, but can be infrequent and, at peak times, overcrowded.
By far the easiest and most comfortable way to travel in each region (without hiring a car) is to book onto private or group transfers and excursions. These eliminate the need to waste valuable time preparing for and arranging your every move. The drivers and guides will also often be able to offer advice and knowledge, enhancing your understanding of the regions and sites that you are travelling to and ensuring you do not miss any secret hidden gems.
Our selection of Chilean independent touring holidays includes options from the most popular hubs in the Atacama, Easter Island, the Lake District and Patagonia. All are entirely flexible and can be tailor made to meet with your specific requirements and virtually all of the country can be incorporated.
