Chile is a narrow strip that stretches 5350 km along the Pacific coast in a north-south direction. The Chilean Andes form one of the highest mountain ranges in the world and have a multitude of peaks over 6,000 m.
Due to the large extension from north to south and the extreme differences in altitude, different climatic conditions arise in Chile. In the north, for example, lies the driest desert in the world, the Atacama Desert. In the south, however, glaciers and ice fields await you.
The official language in Chile is Spanish and the currency is called Chilean Peso.
