Whether you’re a student, graduate or just looking to do something different, explore famous sights or just lap up the beach life, we list gap year trips in Chile to give you lots of options.
Most flights arrive into Santiago which has a hive of activity both throughout the day and night. Most Nationalities are granted a tourist visa on arrival in Chile if you have a valid passport, occassionaly and very rarely you might be asked for proof of an outbound ticket. Chile is quite a small country in comparison with others in South America but this doesn't mean there are any less things to do and places you need to visit.
Public transport is very good / cheap in Chile but the distances are usually long / uncomfortable.We highly recommend you visit the mysterious Easter Island or travel to the world's driest desert - the Atacama - both places you must see at least once in your life. Usually you will need to be aged 18+ but there are shorter taster summer trips available for 16 and 17 year olds. A basic level of Spanish can sometimes be required for some trips.
Program start dates are usually weekly and you can join every month throughout the year. You usually need to commit a minimum of 2 weeks time to join, this can be extended though. Usually you will stay in hotels, hostels and guest houses in Chile, if you book a gap year through our website accommodation is usually provided where you will stay in a house with other internationals. Cultural homestays are also an option where you can live with a local family and teach them English at the same time.
