We are green! Tourism and the protection of the environment in Chile
The natural beauty that Chile holds in its 4,000 kms. of coastline, with the omnipresent Andes Mountain Range, the diversity of its landscapes and climates, make tourism and the protection of the environment a must in Chile. Chile takes care of its unique natural treasures, such as the magical Atacama Desert, the lush forests of native flora and magnificent glaciers at the end of the world.
But that’s not all, Chile can also boast of being one of the countries with the largest expanse of wild and unspoiled territories in the world. Within its vast territory, our country has more than 14 million hectares of protected areas, either within national parks, national reserves and national monuments.
