You should start with the north of chile and work your way around to the south! During those months you might find a lot of rain and cold temperatures in the south of Chile. Try visiting San Pedro de Atacama, then Elqui Valley, then Valparaiso and then move to the south!

Well, you can also try the other way around, starting from south to north :)

I was catching up Kyle from a previous thread, you got any recommendations for snowboarding in July August, you still going?

Sebastian - when are you going?

Bro I Live here

I will be going all the season to the mountains in Santiago.

Probably some day on the week need to work!!!

But I will be here!!

Just comeeeeee

If you wanna snowboard with more nature I really recomend go to Antillanca in the south or Chillan that has more backpakers!!

I travelled around s.america a couple of years ago. We started from Santiago, went to Argentina and various other countries, made our way to Peru, then made our way back to Santiago from Peru. My suggestion is, if you're starting from the North, start right at the top in Arica, Iquique, San Pedro de Atacama (although be careful around there, not only is it expensive but I was robbed in a town close by), Copiapo (although you can miss this one if you want - I just like the town), La Serena, Valparaiso, finally landing in Santiago so you can go to Argentina from there.
