Getting About - Worldwide Holidays


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.
