Chile

For many, the nature and wildlife to see in Chile is the main reason they want to come here. With territory stretching from dry desert in the North to ice-covered fjords in the South and bordered on one side by the Andes Mountains, Chile has some of the most diverse and beautiful landscapes in South America.

Chile

Chile may derive its name from the indigenous Mapuche word chilli, which may mean “where the land ends.” Another meaning attributed to Chile’s name is the onomatopoeic “cheele-cheele”—the Mapuche imitation of a bird call.

The Spanish heard about “Chilli” from the Incas in Peru, who had failed to conquer the land inhabited by the Araucanians, of which the Mapuche were the most warlike group.

Chile

Chile is home to some animals that are almost extinct and are on the list of endangered animals, among them are the pumas, the pudu and the huemul.

Puma sightings are rare as these big cats hunt mainly at night. They live in the Chilean mountains. The pudu is a small deer that lives in the forests of southern Chile. Pudus are the smallest deer species in the world. The tiny Darwin's frog can be found in the streams in Chile's forests. Did you know, that these frogs grow inside their father's mouth?

Blue Whales and Macaroni Penguins can be seen off the coast in southern Chile. The penguins often slide or surf on the snow to get around as this is easier than walking!

In the Atacama desert national park, one can encounter llamas, guanacos and alpacas, and if one is lucky also chinchillas.

Чили, остров Пасхи

О́стров Па́схи — остров в юго-восточной части Тихого океана, территория Чили. Местные называют остров Рапануи.

Рапануи во многом известен благодаря моаи (статуи из камня спрессованного вулканического пепла, в которых, по поверьям местных жителей, заключена магическая сила предков первого короля острова Пасхи — Хоту-Мату’а. Остров Пасхи стал объектом Всемирного наследия ЮНЕСКО.
