We are a family of 5 (boys will be 18, 16 and 12) from the UK and are planning a big 3 week trip for July 2019 (probably from 12th onwards). This will potentially be our last major summer holiday as a family as the eldest will be off to university shortly thereafter. We would like to do something memorable together.
We are active and love the outdoors and Chile seems to tick many of the right boxes for us but July obviously isn't the best time to go. I have spent quite a bit of time on the forum reading July reports but am struggling to work out just how much we could do in the time that we will have.
Would any of you in the know be willing to suggest an itinerary for 3 weeks in July/early August? We are keen hikers and love the natural world. Atacama works at that time of year but would the Northern Lake District work too? And would the Elqui valley be worth a visit. Is there anything that I am missing?
Any ideas gratefully received.
Thank you very much,
