Uncover Chile with Tierra Hotels
Stretching 4,300km, Chile offers contrasting landscapes, from the driest desert in the world, to massive glacier fields. Filling up the heart are volcanoes, geysers, beaches, lakes, rivers, steppe and countless islands. Below we delve into three regions that help define the sheer beauty of Chile and how Tierra Hotels are a great way to experience them.
Often compared to Mars, the Atacama desert is a realm of moon-like valleys, dazzling night skies, stunning pink flamingos and more. The vast expanses are awe-inspiring and filled with an array of natural wonders, among them geysers, dunes and lagoons. Able to be enjoyed year-round, this region features sizzling summer days and frosty cold nights at high altitudes.
Tierra Atacama encapsulates exquisite design, authentic experiences and an intimate, home-from-home atmosphere. Designed by some of Chile’s most renowned architects, it’s made to exist within the natural landscape of the Atacama desert, whilst being eco-friendly and having boutique comforts.
Experience uninterrupted views from your room, allowing you to feel the energy of the desert from the moment you wake, to the moment you fall asleep. Though during the day, you’ll partake in a range of excursions lead by expert guides to allow you to experience the best of the region. For those looking to relax, contemplate Licancabur Volcano whilst spending your time at the Uma Spa.
Patagonia lies tucked away at the southernmost tip of the Americas. The region includes the vastness of the Ice Field and the splendour of mountains like Torres del Paine, Cuernos del Paine and Cerro Castillo.
Here you’ll discover glacial fjords and temperate rainforest that help make up this rugged, remote and breathtakingly beautiful region. Seek out the wildlife that call this area home or come face to face with a glacier on a catamaran. Patagonia is best explored during the summer months, from December through March.
Tierra Patagonia weaves itself into the landscape with subtle style, blending into the magnificence of the region. Here in this untamed part of the world, what you see at this adventure spa hotel is emerald lakes, fantastic mountain ranges and abundant wildlife.
With their expert guides, you can create a plan to suit you to explore the region upon your arrival. Whether you go horse riding, biking, hiking, go on a water excursion or indulge in a hobby like bird watching, there’s something here for every level of fitness and type of interest. The Paine Massif’s silhouette serves as a backdrop for your relaxation and pampering after a day of exploring.
The beauty of Chiloé island is as much in the landscape as its locals. A land of myths and legends, with unique folklore and culinary traditions – this island has a character that cannot be found elsewhere.
This island is a natural paradise with striking landscapes that could stun even the most experienced traveller. Home to colourful wooden churches, 16 of which have been declared UNESCO World Heritage sites, colour houses on stilts and hundreds of colour potato varieties, the vibrancy of Chiloé island is a sight to behold.
Celebrating the local island traditions and a unique geographical setting with natural ease, Tierra Chiloé Adventure and Spa Hotel seeks to immerse you in the best of this archipelago, which is awash in verdant pastures, dramatic coastline and scenic clifftops.
Inside, panoramic windows in the restaurant and living areas allow for uninterrupted Pacific Ocean views, which change constantly as the clouds and light play across the water. Every piece of furniture and decor has a story, as Chilean designers have collaborated with local craftspeople to curate a space which is relaxed and welcoming. Their team of friendly staff and guides are on hand to help you discover the genuine warmth of the islanders, through excursions that provide insights into the local traditions and myths.
