Looking forward to a summer family vacation in Chile? Don’t know where to go? Wish to visit places for you and your family to enjoy safely and relaxed.

We've selected some incredible vacation experiences in northern, central, and southern Chile for you to pick and start planning your family trip!

Different itineraries for a family vacation in Chile 

In the north, center, and south of our country, you will see unique landscapes and places that you will love.


Northern Chile is a magical destination where archaeology, Nature, and magic meet.

It is home to the Atacama Desert and the warmest beaches in the country, such as Playa Brava or Bahía Inglesa. Desert Routes include the Geoglyphs Route, the Lauca National Park and the Pan de Azúcar salt flat. 

The desert is also home to the magical Moon Valley, Tatio Geyser, and other salt flats and beautiful towns in the commune of San Pedro de Atacama.

On the other hand, you can visit the Tulor Village, the oldest archaeological center in Chile, and the enigmatic Rainbow Valley with its colorful lands.

Also, follow the Stars Route for the most transparent sky in the globe, where the stars offer a fantastic show. 

You can reach all these destinations by car. They are simple and easily accessible places that leave a beautiful memory.


Destinations in Central Chile are convenient and close to Santiago, the capital city.

In Santiago, you can find excellent outdoor alternatives like the Bahái Temple of South America, the Nature Sanctuary, and the Cajón del Maipo / Embalse El Yeso (check dates and times before you go).

By car, you can reach the Concón Dunes on the coast and several vineyards in the Valparaíso Region and enjoy delicious wine in the Maule Valley Wine Route.

Southern Chile and Chilean Patagonia

Southern Chile offers attractions and vibrant destinations of culture, good gastronomy, and beautiful landscapes worthy of being included in any itinerary. In that sense, the regions of Los Lagos and Los Rios are pleasant for their mild temperatures during the summer. Lagoons, lakes, and forests are some of the ideal places to respect physics. 

But if you are looking for adventure, Chilean Patagonia is the place to be. From trekking the Torres del Paine National Reserve to visiting sites that only locals know and cycling along the Carretera Austral. It is also a great destination if the idea is traveling in Patagonia with kids.

Chile is the place to vacation this year!

This South American country offers many attractions for you and your family to live a well-deserved vacation. Make sure to check for specific travel requirements for each place you decide to visit.
