The hotlist: 7 destinations to visit in 2017

1 of 7 1/7


This year is already in full swing and everybody is longing for warmer climates. Beat the blues by planning your next luxury vacation and be inspired by our edit of the best destinations to visit in 2017.

1. Chile

As one of the longest countries in the world, Chile offers an extraordinary array of natural wonders to take in during your trip.

Best for: Those in search of something otherworldly

What to do and see: The natural sights in southern Chile are the main draw for this incredible part of the world. Known for its rugged national parks, the Parque Nacional Torres del Paine should be at the top of your bucket list. The main features are the towering granite Torres del Paine but the sapphire lakes, mountains, glaciers, forests and rivers will ensure you come away with a lifelong collection of memories.

Spend your days cycling, horseriding, trekking and kayaking, discovering stunning waterfalls, caves, fjords and wildlife. Those cruising in this spectacular region can hope to spot dolphins, penguins and killer whales. The Chilean fjords are best experienced by boat and currently, the 50 metre explorer yacht Plan B is available to charter there.

On the south-eastern edge of the park sits Puerto Natales, a city steeped in colour, culture and history. It's the perfect place to explore and enjoy some local cuisine with a glass of Chilean wine.

When to go: The high season runs from November through to March in the south of Chile as these are the warmest months of the year, with average temperatures of approximately 14°C.
