Chile Mini Guide

Like the backbone of a huge animal, Chile runs it long, thin course down the South American continent's broad back - the Pacific coast for 4200 km (2610 miles), and is never more than 400 km (about 250 miles) and usually less than 200 km (about 125 miles) in width. It has every kind of climate, from deserts to icy wastes. The most hospitable area are in the centre of the country, around the capital, Santiago, especially the coastal lowlands and the great valley which lies between the double chain of the Andes. In the north lies the Atacama Desert, a hostile expanse of sand and pebbles stretching for 1000 km (620 miles). The south, by contrast, is one of the stormiest places, 1000 km (620 miles) of mountains, forest, volcanoes and desolate islands a rain drenched wilderness of fire, sea and ice.

Chile Desert

The teeming sea along the coast is rich in tuna and sardines, which are processed by numerous fish-canning factories. The sea also brings to the coastal towns a climate that is more moderate, though still hot, than the extreme conditions inland. The Peruvian Current sweeps cool water northwards along the coast preventing the formation of rain clouds - the cause of the conditions inland. In the foothills of the Andes, the height cools the weather and people grow oranges, lemon and mandarins.

Chile Coast

Chile's territory does not end at Tierra del Fuego. There are islands in the Pacific and Antarctic that arc also possessions of Chile, among which perhaps the most interesting are the Juan Fernandez archipelago, about 640km (400 miles) west of Chile, and Easter Island, 3,780km (2,350 miles) out in the Pacific.
