Jane Anderson, Honeymoon expert Jane's verdict
Prepare to fall in love with this other-worldly beauty. Chile is only 180km wide and a staggering 4,329km long, tucked behind the Andes. Its Atacama Desert is more moonlike than earthly, whilst its lakes and fjords make jaws drop. Knock back a crisp Chilean wine and congratulate yourselves on beginning married life in such an adventurous way.

Chile, with its crystal lakes, towering volcanoes and fascinating indigenous peoples, has emerged as one of our most popular Latin American destinations.

  • Atacama Desert
  • Spectacular scenery
  • Wine-tasting

Discover Chile in style on one of our tailor-made honeymoons, put together by our team of experts and centred around your personal interests. Here are some suggested itineraries to inspire you.

Chile really delivers when it comes to scenery, from the jagged crags of Torres del Paine in Southern Patagonia to the vineyards of the country’s renowned wine region – and not forgetting the ethereal Atacama Desert. Our 12-night Classic Chile honeymoon is the perfect introduction, with fabulous hotels in true A&K style all the way.

Highlights of Chile is a slightly shorter version, just nine nights, perhaps if you want to combine it with another South American country.

The mysterious Moai statues – the Giants of Chile – have attracted many travellers to Easter Island. See them for yourselves, lined up on the shore, on a tailor-made honeymoon, perhaps combining it with a stay in the Atacama at this fabulously luxurious desert camp.

If you like being out on the water, head to Chile’s Lake District. On our Lakes & Fjords honeymoon, you can soak up the beauty of the forest-fringed Lake Llanquihue and the snow-capped volcanoes in Puerto Varas. Sample fresh seafood in Santiago and discover mysterious Chiloe Island’s icy fjords, before taking a four-day luxury cruise on the Beagle Channel, travelling between Punta Arenas and Ushuaia. Enjoy a final night or two in arty Buenos Aires.

The best time to visit Chile is from November to March. Discover more about our tailor-made honeymoons in Chile.
