Chile is a spectacle of the elements, manifested here in all their raw power and variety.
It is land on the plateaus and amidst the soaring peaks of the Andes, home to populations that have lived there for thousands of years, but it also the moonscape of the salt desert of Atacama.
It is water in the crystalline ice of Patagonia, dotted with lakes, fjords, and waterfalls, but also in the strong currents of Cape Horn.
It is fire when the bowels of the earth explode with the untameable energy of Chile’s volcanoes and El Tatio, one of the largest geyser fields in the world.
And then there’s air, relentlessly sweeping across Rapa Nui – Easter Island – guarded by the eternal stone sentinels of the moai statues.
