Chile is one hell of a charming and colorful country to travel in, from the adorable culture of Easter Island, to the alien landscape of Atacama to the pristine lakes and mountains of Patagonia, Charming Chile will take you to all of these places and more! Be sure to watch to the end and further for some fun extra videos. 😉
Easter Island! After 4 years of wanting to visit the island, I’d finally made it and wow, was it well worth the effort! As I was traveling down from Atacama desert through Santiago to Patagonia, I’d seen the wonderful port city of Valparaiso, hiked up to witness lava spewing from Villarrica Volcano in Pucon, walked the famous Torres del Paine trail in Patagonia and ended my Chile trip at the Easter Island celebrating with the locals, one of the best festivals in the world, the Tapati Festival.
Easter Island was definitely the highlight of the trip and the best way to end my 6-months long trip in South America. I rented a quad bike and drove around the island for 5 days, enjoying the clear sky, laying on my bike under the clearest Milky Way I’ve ever seen, watching the sunrise behind the Ahu Tongariki Moai head statues, and watching the Rapa Nui people celebrated the greatest festival of all, the Tapati Festive and danced away their heart out and all of that are compressed in this 7 minutes video!
7 minutes is too long for a travel video, you asked? Don’t worry, the travel video itself is around 3 minutes as usual but be sure to watch all the way to the end and beyond for some extra content. 😉 As some of you may know, I like to leave extra footages at the end of my travel video for those who watched til the end and Charming Chile is the only video where this extra footages are almost as long as the travel video it self as I have a ton of unused clips from the Tapati Festival I want to share with you.
I hope you enjoy this video as much as I did traveling through the country!
