Chile: “Best Adventure Tourism Destination” | Far Out Trails

In a ceremony which took place in Bogota, Colombia, Chile was recognized as Latin America’s leading destination for adventure tourism. This is the first prize that our country has received from the contest during the 22 years that it’s been running. Once the nominations had been defined by experts, the votes were then received directly from the general public.

Since 1993, the World Travel Awards has been highlighting excellence across the industry and awarding the very best with prizes, which is one of the reasons why it’s known as “The Oscars of Tourism”. What’s more, for the first time in history, Chile hosted the “Adventure Travel World Summit”, managed by the Adventure Travel Trade Association (ATTA); the most important guild for adventure travel in the world. The event, which took place this year in the city of Puerto Varas, featured the promotion of sustainable tourism as one of its principal objectives.


Ice-hike across Glacier Grey. As the summer season approaches in Chile’s extreme south, the number of outdoor activities increases, particularly those that take place close to the glacial zones. This excursion offers incredible views of Glacier Grey in the Torres del Paine National Park in the extreme south of Chile. The activity allows you to appreciate the magnitude of this huge slab of ice that forms part of the Southern Ice Field.

Cactus Valley Treking (The Atacama Desert). Another great landscape is that which offers the trek through Guatín, more commonly known as Cardones Ravine, which unfolds out onto the land where the Purifica and Puritama rivers meet. As its pseudonym suggests, its land is filled with an abundance of cacti, or cardones, many of which are 100 years old and around seven meters high. Among the most interesting places to visit at this ravine is the Guatín Canyon, an area where water sources descend and a variety of cacti is born.


Kayak along the route of the glaciers. Chile is the country with the largest surface area of glaciers in South America; an area around 22.000 km2 distributed across little more than 1.700 snowdrifts. Sailing across this area of the Chilean Patagonia in kayak is the closest you can get to bringing history to life. It’s your chance to experience what it was like for native communities who made these water crossings thousands of years ago.

In the middle of the fjords and canals that make up the irregular geography, various routes have been converted into expeditions and they’re becoming more and more frequent: expeditions to the Jorge Montt Glacier, the Steffens Glacier and the San Rafael Glacier.
