A staggering 2650mi (4265km) long, Chile is an adventurer’s dream, stretching past unspoilt desert, spooky salt flats, glacial lakes and dramatic mountains. From valleys to volcanoes, fjords to forests, there is an endless bounty of natural treasures to be discovered in this spectacular South American country. Fall under its spell at one of these remarkable resorts.

Don’t expect a standard hotel here at the gateway to Northern Patagonia in the Los Lagos Region. Instead, guests stay in either self-contained cabins in the woods, domes with private bathrooms or tents with shared facilities. Days are spent trekking in the Puyehue National Park, mountain biking by Lake Puyehue and soaking in the two thermal pools, filled with crystal-clear water from the area’s natural springs.
