Packed full of trustworthy and up-to-date advice, check out the new Lonely Planet Chile & Easter Island travel guide. Chile is nature on a colossal scale, but travel here is surprisingly easy if you don't rush it. Strap on your pack and hike through winding forests to behold the granite mountain spires of Las Torres; watch sunset turn the Valle de la Luna intense purple, gold, pink and yellow; and puzzle over the giant statues of Easter Island - all with your trusted travel companion.

Lonely Planet writer Carolyn McCarthy explains why she loves Chile & Easter Island: "I've worked in Chile as a hiking guide, documented pioneer life in Patagonia and return to spend part of each year in the south. For me, Chile has always meant nature as it should be, in so many places a tangled and vast wilderness unmarred by the human hand. You could spend a lifetime discovering its wonderful, wild places. Precious few of these places remain on the planet, yet they are fundamental to our well-being and survival."
