Roaming Chile’s Surreal Wilderness With New Specials from Goway
Goway lifts the lid on the Atacama Desert and Patagonia.
Goway Travel is offering spectacular savings on its range of Chile tours. From the sweeping wilds of Patagonia up to the colourful deserts of Atacama, South America’s wealthiest country boasts abundant natural riches as well. Many packages also include a free one-night stopover in energetic Santiago, while one offers an additional night in Chile’s much-loved wine country.
Shared by Argentina and Chile, Patagonia is one of the world’s most striking mountain regions. While the Argentinean side contains most of the area’s cities, Chilean Patagonia benefits from its unique location on the Pacific Ocean. Impressive mountains, lakes and glaciers make up much of this landscape, and many of these are teeming with wildlife. Cougars, whales, penguins, seals, and sizeable bird populations, along with a range of endemic species including Patagonian Foxes and Maras, all make their homes here. Chilean highlights include Torres del Paine National Park, the Marinelli Glacier and for those who journey far enough south, Tierra del Fuego, a unique archipelago at the foot of the continent.
All the way up Chile’s Pacific coast, the Atacama Desert stretches over 600 miles in length and is noted for its sweeping salt lakes and photogenic lava flows. It’s no surprise that the area has stood in for Mars in several movies and TV shows. The Moon Valley, formerly a major salt-mining area, is one of the desert’s most popular attractions. Many visitors however are stunned by the variety of landscapes that make up this arid, rocky environment. Over 500 plant species thrive here, dotting the area with splashes of vivid colour, and occasional rainfalls create a unique phenomenon known as the flowering desert.
Until December 31, 2014, Goway is offering significant savings on trips to one or both of these regions. Five different Chile specials are available, saving globetrotters up to $800 per person. Offers may include a bonus night at the Ritz Carlton in Santiago or at La Casona Vineyard, free accommodation for kids or teens, a special honeymoon package, or 10% off the cost of a trip combining Patagonia with Atacama. Details and conditions of the specials can be found on the Goway website.
