Andrea Wolleter, la directora nacional de Sernatur, manifestó su satisfacción por estar presente este año en Fitur. “Estamos mostrando a Chile nuevamente en esta feria que es muy importante para el desarrollo del turismo nacional en el mercado español. Sin duda alguna, Chile y sus diversos contrastes geográficos y grandes espacios abiertos han sido históricamente un atractivo para los diferentes visitantes del mundo, pero ahora más que nunca son estas características las que dan tranquilidad a los viajeros, pues les permiten descubrir el país a través de sus espacios naturales y con poca aglomeración de personas”.
In this way, Chile strengthens in this 2022 its historical relationship of participation in Fitur. The Chilean authorities also took advantage of the framework of the Spanish professional event to relaunch their international promotion campaign 'Chile, where the impossible is possible', which includes several strategic lines from the point of view of public policies and promotion to development of new tourist destinations, products and services with sustainability as the driving force.

Además, en esta versión, Chile Travel está estrenando un remozado diseño con líneas más simples, creciendo en espacio aéreo y altura que nos da mayor visibilidad y la aplicación de una nueva línea gráfica basada en iconografía basadas en naturaleza, aventura y fauna propia del país.
Fitur, in addition, is a great opportunity to show all the attractions of the country. An example is the recognition in the World Travel Awards, also known as the 'Oscars of tourism', which once again awarded Chile as the Best World Destination for Adventure Tourism. This is the sixth time that the country has achieved this award, which strengthens its credentials as the main country where its natural landscapes and geography form a natural gym for various sports, such as trekking, mountaineering, surfing and rafting.
That is why Chile's bet is that the great trip of 2022 be to our country. After almost two years of the pandemic, studies indicate that post-pandemic travelers are looking to make their next long-distance trip in 2022, with an itinerary of more than seven days at the destination. Also, preferences have changed and now the traveler flees the crowds and wants to enjoy nature, which makes Chile an ideal destination.
