Chile - the longest country on earth!
Chile is the longest country in the world, the thin strip of land between the southern half of the Andes Mountain Range and the Pacific Ocean. The country has ecotourism destinations such as the Atacama Desert, the highest mountains in The Americas, the Lake District in Patagonia, the volcanoes of the Carretera Austral, plus the trekking paradise of Torres del Paine. Easter Island and the Moai also make part of Chile.
