Chile is Named the Best International Adventure Hub in Outside Magazine’s Best of Travel 2015
SANTIAGO (March 11, 2015) – OUTSIDE, America’s leading active lifestyle brand, has selected Chile as an honoree of its annual Best of Travel awards. From newly-revealed travel territories to the best deals, OUTSIDE’s Best of Travel 2015 celebrates the destinations and travel providers that inspire people to participate in an active lifestyle. Chile has been honored as the Best International Adventure Hub.
This year, OUTSIDE’s adventure travel veterans scoured the globe to identify the coolest mountains to climb, food to eat, rivers to float, guides to hire, beaches to lounge on, and lodges to luxuriate in. The result is 40 breathtaking options—from the guides to show you around, to the cameras to capture it all, to the places to stay, to the best place to grab a snack at a food truck along the way.
“Chile is the adventure capital of South America,” said Juan Lopez, North America market manager for Turismo Chile. “From the world’s longest trekking trail to the exhilarating ski slopes of the Andes, from diving at Easter Island to bird watching in the native forests of Chiloé, thrill seekers will be enchanted by Chile’s outdoor/adventure offerings.”
“OUTSIDE has been covering the adventure-travel beat for nearly four decades,” said Editor Chris Keyes. “We know this terrain, and now we’ve narrowed your choices of hotels, destinations, outfitters, and travel gear from approximately 10.6 million to 40. The final choice is still on you, but now the task is at least manageable.
The complete list of Best of Travel winners will be featured in the April issue of OUTSIDE, available March 17, and online at www.outsideonline.com/bestoftravel. Continue the conversation with #OutsideTravel2015.
