Chile's Patagonia extends from the achingly beautiful lake district - with its ice-cream cone volcanoes, meadows, waterfalls and virgin forests - down to the glaciers and steppes of a more brutal, primeval landscape in the far south. The area of the lakes, traditionally a magnet for visitors from Chile and overseas alike, has become more accessible, and hotels, lodges and resorts of all standards have been established there. Chiloe, the misty and mysterious island off the Pacific coast, steeped in myth and legend, has long conserved a traditional way of life and now here too you can explore from a delightful top-of-the-range property, Tierra Chiloe.
Further south, on the fringes of Torres del Paine National Park, the lodge's sister property, Tierra Patagonia, offers an equally exclusive opportunity to explore the mountains and glaciers of wild and untamed region in comfort and style.
Round off your adventure with a couple of days luxuriating at one of Chile's most prestigious vineyards, set in a fertile valley not far from the capital, Santiago.
