Every season is unique for different reasons and for the same reason, the images that could be captured in different seasons have something, but without a doubt getting an autumn photograph in Chile is a picture for a lifetime.
It may be the trees’ foliage, the humidity, or the reduction of tourists, but autumn definitely has something special to show and in Chile Travel we are going to tell you where to go to look for it.
