Outstanding service - what was impressive was the continuation of service once my travel arrangements were secured. The service did not slow down - Natasha and the other consultants continued to answer my queries promptly, which really helped me to plan all aspects of our holiday. I would be happy to provide a testimonial to be used for your promotional purposes if required."

Robinson Crusoe Island, with its ragged and mountainous topography, is the second largest of three islands in the Juan Fernandez Archipelago, situated 670 km off the coast of mainland Chile. It is a place that recalls stories of castaways, pirates and prisoners. It is an isolated volcanic mass rising out of the cold currents of the South Pacific Ocean. The sailor Alexander Selkirk was marooned on this island in 1704 for four years and four months, eventually inspiring Daniel Defoe to write the novel ‘Robinson Crusoe’ in 1719. The Chilean government renamed the island in 1966 to reflect this historical legacy.

These days around 800 people live there, surviving on lobster, fishing and tourism. It is a stunningly beautiful place of dramatic cliffs and soaring mountains. Above the single village of San Juan Bautista is a steeply winding path that leads to ‘Selkirk's look-out’, a vantage point where, according to locals, the lone Scotsman would sit for hours, scouring the horizon for ships. One can visit the caves that housed Chilean political prisoners until 1817. Lovers of nature and trekking are in for a treat. Declared a World Biosphere Reserve by UNESCO, there are many activities that appeal.

The boomerang-shaped island is 19 km long, with eight or more jagged peaks from 300 to 900 m. Hikers can view dramatic land and seascapes, and vegetation from tall trees to bushes to dry regions in the west (where there is an airfield). Most of the plant life is endemic. In Cumberland Bay off San Juan Bautista is the scuttled German light cruiser SMS Dresden (1915), now a haunt of scuba-divers. In 2010 a tsunami washed away most of the town. Today’s population of 850 or so has access to satellite TV and the Internet. Visitors’ activities include hiking, horseback riding, birdwatching, snorkelling and scuba diving, as well as sports fishing.
