Chilean Desert

The driest desert in the world captivates and is the scene of some of our most transformative journeys.

Explore the Desert

Chile is home to what scientists consider to be the driest desert in the world, the Atacama Desert, a plateau that stretches across 600 miles (1,000 kms) of land from the Pacific coastline over the Andes mountains. The geography offers photographers and travelers alike jaw-dropping scenes and endless adventures. South of the Atacama, Chile’s desert lands are home to bohemian towns, pisco production and some of the worlds most renowned observatories (hello, stargazing).

Traveler Reviews

We visited Chile to experience its wines and cuisine. We considered other tour operators but kept coming back to Upscape based on trip advisor’s reviews – and we are glad we did. We visited 9 wineries in all in the Colchagua, Casablanca, and San Antonio valleys. All our guides were proficient in English, very knowledgeable, and service oriented. We highly recommend Upscape for those visiting Santiago and surrounding wine country.

“Please convey once again to all your colleagues our great pleasure in being so well taken care of. Our guides in Puerto Montt, Coyhaique and Santiago were excellent and accommodating, and our pilots were skilled and gracious”.
