Chile named South America’s Leading Adventure Tourism Destination

InvestChile - October,25,2021

The 28th World Travel Awards (WTA) for South America 2021 named Chile the Most Romantic Destination and the Leading Adventure Tourism Destination. These honors also demonstrate the business and investment opportunities that exist in Chile. 


For the seventh consecutive year, Chile was declared the indisputable winner in the category “Leading Adventure Tourism Destination,” beating out competition from major South American tourism markets at the 28th World Travel Awards (WTA) for South America 2021. Chile was also named Most Romantic Destination. 

South America’s Leading Adventure Tourism Destination  

There are numerous reasons why Chile won the title in South America for the seventh time. With over 100 parks and nature reserves, more than 4000 km of coastline and the driest desert in the world, just to name a few of Chile’s natural attractions, the country has become the undeniable destination for limitless adventure all due to its contrasting landscapes from north to south.  

South America’s Most Romantic Destination 

Chile won this special category in 2019 and 2020. Now in 2021, Chile has once again been recognized as South America’s Most Romantic Destination, thanks to the many natural attractions San Pedro de Atacama has to offer. Its exceptionable sunsets and landscapes make Chile, once again, the best place for stargazing in South America.  

World Travel Awards 2021

Chile is currently competing at the global level where it has received 5 nominations in a variety of categories that include “World’s Leading Adventure Tourism Destination,” “ World’s Leading Green Destination,” “World’s Leading Festival and Event Destination,” “World’s Most Romantic Destination” and “World’s Leading Nature Destination.”
