MOBILIZATION


Buses: There exist hundreds of different bus companies in Chile, which connect mostly all cities from the north till the south. In Santiago there is a good underground net and heaps of buses (Micro) are driving through the crowded city. Taxis or colectivos (Taxis which drive a certain route) are everywhere and cheap.

Train: The only route, which exists today, is the one to the south from Santiago to Chillán. And in Arica there is a train which runs daily to the peruvian city of Tacna.

Air: The airport Santiago - Arturo Merino Benítez (22 km outside of the centre) has international connections to the entire world. The national airlines LAN and Skyairline fly to different cities in the country.

Ship: The most known trip you can do is with Navimag from Puerto Montt to Puerto Natales (and back). This journey takes you through a spectacular and breathtaking nature with fjords, bays and lonely islands.
