'Ultimate Journeys' brings the wonders of the world to light, as you have never seen them before. The stunning high definition footage transports you to the most extreme places on the planet on a spine-tingling world of adventure. Ultimate Journeys provides the ultimate adventure guide, going off the beaten track and away from the tourist trail. Each episode goes to the heart of the destination, from its history and culture to its cuisine and wildlife. Explore the icy depths of Antarctica, the heavenly peaks of Chile; the coral jungles of Micronesia, the sky scrapers of Shanghai and tour Vietnam by motorbike. It is a global adventure like no other. Join us on a journey through the icy mountains of southern Chile where monstrous glaciers tower over ancient trees and lakes, vast cloud forests stretch as far as the eye can see, take a hike through its wild beauty, or enjoy the scenery on horseback. Almost as huge, the heart of Chile houses enormous vineyards where we witness the decadence of bygone days, and enjoy the fine wines of the region. And finally, the metropolis Santiago - a vibrant, charismatic community that adds a modern ending to our Ultimate Journey, to Chile.

Whether travelers are interested in first-rate vineyards, glittery beach resorts, desert adventures, sprawling glaciers, or the urban pleasures and inventive cuisine of Santiago, Fodor's Chile helps them craft the perfect itinerary for this diverse
