The great news in January 2017 was the start of the 1st direct flight from Heathrow to Santiago de Chile, operated by British Airways. It is the airlines lengthiest long-haul route & operates 4 times a week, using the new 4 cabin Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner aircraft. There are also other airline options, flying via a European city such as Madrid, Paris CDG & Amsterdam or via Colombia or a US city.
Due to the unusual geographical shape of Chile, it being so long & thin, travelling between areas will require taking domestic flights. The schedule is not always ideal & for the al flights south to Patagonia early booking is recommended. A popular idea is to self-drive in the Lake District area, but again domestic flights are needed to get to & from the car pick up cities.
There are several cruises possible in Chile. The most interesting ones are the those that explore the Patagonian fjords and channels with a focus on exploration rather than a standard mainstream cruise. Cruises leave from Puerto Montt towards the Southern regions as far as Antarctica. The very popular Australis cruises go between Punta Arenas & Ushuaia.
As with all of our destinations we will include all transfers.
