Calling all fair trade enthusiasts! South America just got a lot closer…
Our Meet the People Tour to Chile has always been a firm favourite for Skedaddle. As well as being the birthplace of our company, we’re lovers of MiFruta’s raisins, Lautaro’s wine, and Apicoop’s honey of course! So news that the first ever DIRECT flight from the UK to Chile has finally arrived has us beaming ear-to-ear.
How to get there?
Thanks to BA, as of the first week of 2017, you can fly direct from London Heathrow to Santiago – yippee! Telegraph Travel tell us more:
“Chile is of enormous appeal to leisure travellers, especially those looking for adventure, exploration and experiences, thanks to its outstanding and diverse natural beauty and attractions and its great food and wine.”

For us, visiting Chile is about more than simply enjoying the stunning landscapes and tucking in to delicious local food and wine (although that’s always part of the experience too!). Our Meet the People Tour of Chile is about getting under the skin of a seemingly well-developed and comfortable nation. It’s learning about the challenges that you don’t hear about, it’s hearing from farmers and activists striving for better. It’s hearing inspiring stories of fair trade, solidarity, empowerment and overcoming adversity.
Thanks to BA’s direct flights, it has got a whole lot easier and quicker to make all this happen and we would like to invite you to join us!
