A selection of my favorite images from Chile.
- El Desierto de Atacama
The Atacama Desert is one of the most beautiful regions of Chile and a true paradise for photographers.
This comprehensive selection include photos of the Valle de la Luna (Moon Valley) near San Pedro de Atacama, the Lagunas Miscanti, Miniques and Chaxa,
the Salar de Talar, the beautiful Pampa de Tara with it's "Moais de Tara", the volcanoes Licancabur and Juriques, the Rio Purifica and El Tatio Geysers.
Parque Nacional Lauca y Salar de Surire
The Far North offers some of the best nature parks in Chile. From the Pacific coast town Arica you can drive up to 4.500m in
just a few hours (what - by the way - shouldn't be done without a proper acclimatisation).
If you make it, you will be awarded with some of the Altiplano's finest lagunas and volcanoes, i.e Lago Chungara, Volcan Parinacota
and Pomerape (Los Payachatas), Nevado Sajama, Putre, Vizcachas and Vicunas
The Lake District is located south of the capital Santiago de Chile. The region's nickname is the "Chilean Switzerland", because of the picturesque lakes,
the lush woodlands and incredible mountains. The high res photo selection includes Lago and Volcan Villarica with nearby Pucon,
Lago Llanquihue and Volcan Osorno with nearby Puerto Varas and Frutillar, Lago Todos Los Santos with the Saltos de Petrohue and Peulla.
Rapa Nui (Easter Island)
Patagonia - El fin del Mundo (The End of the World) is definitely a very special and unique place.
It not only offers some of the best landscapes and national parks of Chile, it is also one of the premier spots for trekking and climbing.
Among the most famous parks are Torres del Paine with the Grey Glaciar, Bernardo O'Higgins with the nearby glaciars Balmaceda and Serrano,
Puerto Natales with the Seno Ultima Esperanza, Punta Arenas with Seno Otway penguin colony and Puerto Hambre and the famous shipwreck Lord Lonsdale,
Estancia San Gregorio with the shipwrecks Ambassador and Amadeo, and finally the Pali Aike National Park with its Guanacos, Andean foxes and Nundus.
