Our journey through Chile went from one of the worlds driest deserts in the north to the beautiful Patagonia in the South. We started in Arica before heading through deserts to visit ghost towns which have long been empty followed by the graffiti covered city of Valperaíso. The next step involved climbing Villarica volcano, apwhich is currently active, only to slide all the way back down on the snow.
After a short flight we arrived in Patagonia to complete a 6 day hike in the absolutely stunning Torres Del Paine national park. The final stop was the capital of Santiago which would be our home for Christmas before departing for New Zealand.
