Chile is now one of the new adventure destinations with its mix of high mountains, magical rain forests and yet-to-be discovered national parks.
Adventure seekers looking for luxury can choose from a range of lodges that now offer a range of activities. Go heli-skiing at the Puma Lodge, an hour and a half away from Santiago. The virgin slopes around it make for an exhilarating ski experience.
The Singular in the Chilean Patagonia is the gateway to glaciers nearby.
Go horseback over the grass plains or boat across a glacial lake when you stay at the Torres del Paine Park.
And, when you return from your perambulations, relax in the spa or an indoor heated pool.
As they say, adventure does not have to be tough on the mind.
