After being closed to travelers for a long period of time, Chile is officially ready to welcome fully vaccinated travelers from around the world. The National System of State Protected Wildlife Areas comprises 22 percent of domestic territory in Chile, and with 43 national parks, 45 national reserves and 18 natural monuments, the country is the perfect destination for travelers to participate in sustainable tourism.


Recently, the Chilean Tourism Authorities created Sustainability Seals, also known as S Seals, awarded to companies promoting sustainable tourism. Chile took the necessary steps to promote and encourage sustainable experiences through the use of renewable energies, modes of transportation and eco-friendly production.


Visits to Parks and National Reserves


Pampa del Tamarugal National Reserves

Travelers who love to go camping should check out Pampa del Tamarugal National Reserves. This is a unique opportunity for campers to stay in the middle of Chile’s largest native forest, home to four designated areas for trails and educational activities so travelers can learn about the region’s flora and fauna.


Fray Jorge National Park

Fray Jorge National Park is an unusual UNESCO Biosphere reserve nestled in the shoreline, facing the Pacific Ocean on the Talinay Mountain Range. It has a microclimate that feeds a rainforest in the middle of a semi-arid climate zone. Travelers can explore the trails leading to lookouts where they can see hawks, partridges, Humboldt penguins and Andean foxes.

Juan Fernandez Archipelago

This group of islands is located more than 200 miles from Chile’s Pacific coastline and is known for its impressive dive sites and native species — keep an eye out for the red hummingbird and Juan Fernandez lobster. Make sure to explore the underwater paradise of Robinson Crusoe, which offers crystal-clear visibility and marine biodiversity.


S Seal Lodging Options


EcoCamp Patagonia

EcoCamp Patagonia is located in the heart of Torres del Paine National Park and home to one-of-a-kind accommodations in the shape of geodesic domes. The camp operates on minimum environmental impact; electricity is provided primarily from solar panels, domes are connected to wooden walkways to preserve the grounds and materials used to run the property are all recycled.


Tierra Chiloe

This sustainable boutique hotel is located in the archipelago of Chiloe and is like no other accommodation due to its modern comfort, unique spa and surrounding area. The property highlights and honors nature and the area’s biodiversity. It was built with low-impact construction methods and makes use of natural resources.

Cheval Blanc Paris Review

Since Cheval Blanc, an extraordinary, newly designed and refurbished 72-room hotel owned by Louis Vuitton Moet Hennessey, launched in September 2021, it has been the talk of the town. Le Tout-Paris remarks about its WOW factor … and the hard-to-get reservations for the 30 seats at Plenitude, the intimate, first-floor gastronomic outlet headed by chef Arnaud Donckele, who earned three Michelin stars at Cheval Blanc Saint Tropez. Reservations are also recommended for Limbar, the ground-floor bakery/café/tea shop/bar where we watched Pastry Chef Maxime Frédéric preparing desserts and an absolute must-have for dinner at Le Tout-Paris, the 7th-floor, all-day brasserie. This brightly colored space, with its raised seating and Fauve-like floor tiles and the adjacent Milanese restaurant, Langosteria, both have access to terraces facing the Seine River, with amazing views encompassing Notre Dame to the Eiffel Tower.
