TrekkersAs in North America and Europe, trekking and walking are increasingly popular activities in Chile, and with good reason: no other activity is so simple, accessible, and healthy, while allowing such intimate contact with local environments and cultures.

In comparison to other South American tour destinations, trekking and walking in Chile is remarkably safe and worry-free. Most treks take place in wilderness or scarcely inhabited areas where locals, if any, are friendly and interested in news from abroad. There are no poisonous snakes, and if you manage to spot a puma, you should count yourself very lucky. Tropical diseases are unknown here and water quality, especially in the south, is excellent. Most trails are well maintained and reasonably well marked, though erosion from horses and other livestock is a problem.
