The tourism in Chile can be classified into two categories: natural and cultural attractions. Within you may find fascinating natural landscapes, in which you can develop various outdoor activities such as rafting, trekking, mountain biking, paragliding, skiing and others. In the cultural attractions, usually located in the center of Santiago, you can explore the most important buildings, museums, historical monuments and heritage.
Santiago de Chile, with its particular territory (hills and parks in the middle of the city) and different landscape offer various options for tourists.
One of the greatest privileges of being in Santiago is that you will be close to everything. In a little bit more than 60 minutes you can reach the ski resorts and about 90 minutes away are the beaches of Viña del Mar and Valparaiso, which was declared as a Heritage.
If you are looking to get away of the city to encounter some nature, the vineyards, the ski centers and the Cajón del Maipo are a good choice for you. If you prefer to stay in the capital of Santiago you can enjoy various natural areas, such as the Parque Mahuida, Parque Metropolitano and the Santuario Río Clarillo.
