Highlights and product description overview
Here is your chance to explore the Atacama one of the world’s most arid landscapes. Some areas of the Atacama have not received a single drop of rain in over a hundred years. On arrival, we will pick you up at the airport in Calama and transport you to San Pedro de Atacama where you will spend the next few nights. San Pedro is historic town and a charming oasis in the otherwise vast desert set against the spectacular backdrop of the Chilean Andes.
On the first day we will visit the Valle de la Luna famous for its sand dunes, spectacular multi-colored badlands, and caverns. On day two we head towards the vast Salt Flats of the Atacama and the high altitude lakes of Miscanti and Miñiques where it’s common to see large flocks of pink Flamingoes and in the distant the giant volcanoes of the Andes. Day three takes us to the Geiser del Tatio (4380m) the world’s highest altitude thermal area. It’s truly a wonderful experience to walk among the bubbling hot pots and geysers which are set against dark blue skies amidst the vast desert of the Atacama. Our final excursion on day four will highlight the El Pucará & Tulor archeological sites that bring to life the ancient history and culture of the region.
