Chile is an extremely long country, which entails a variety of climates and landscapes ranging from the arid ones typical of the desert regions to the Arctic ones.

To Chile belong tiny archipelagos scattered in the Pacific Ocean and most of the times uninhabited. The most famous of the islands under Chilean administration is Rapa Nui (name in local language), otherwise known as Easter Island.

The upper part is called Norte Grande and indicates the territory bordering Bolivia and Peru. It is an extremely arid region dominated by the coastal desert of Atacama. Close to the thin coastal strip, an equally arid plateau rises and sprinkled with volcanic cones. The lower part is instead called Norte Chico and is characterized by a transition from the arid climate of the far north to the temperate one of the central region.
