Cascada Expediciones

Cascada Expediciones was founded in 1991 by university friends Javier Lopez, Yerko Ivelic, and Nani Astorga, who studied tourism and engineering, and wanted to create a unique company that showed off the best of Chile through thrilling and immersive adventures for its clients. The mission has been a resounding success, and in 2016, Cascada proudly celebrated 25 years of helping create wonderful, lifelong memories. Cascada’s pride and joy is the EcoCamp Patagonia, an award-winning and critically and publicly lauded sustainable hotel located in the heart of Torres del Paine National Park. First opened in 2001 and composed of eco-friendly and completely sustainable geodesic domes, EcoCamp was the first hotel of its kind in the world, and since then, has become an industry leader in sustainable lodging, inspiring the opening of eight other similar hotels worldwide. EcoCamp not only provides a comfortable oasis in the park where visitors can connect with nature while still enjoying modern amenities and delicious meals, but also has exciting and diverse excursion options for everyone!

Day 1, Atacama Arrival & Moon Valley
Atacama, Chile.
We arrive at Calama Airport and are driven straight to San Pedro de Atacama, past the impressive rock formations of the Cordillera de la Sal (Salt Mountains). Upon arrival you will receive the itinerary for the upcoming days. In the afternoon we do our first hike in the vast, amazing Valle de la Luna. We walk over sand dunes until we reach the viewpoint from where we will witness one of the world’s most beautiful sunsets, intensified by the warm colours throughout the Valley. Then we come back to town and stay overnight in San Pedro.

Day 2, Atacama Salt Flats, Miscanti & Miñiques Lagoons
Atacama, Chile.
After breakfast we start our adventure by driving to Toconao, a beautiful Andean village. Toconao’s lands are an oasis in the desert and are apt for growing fruits and vegetables nourished by water coming in through small channels. We visit its main streets and San Lucas church. We then continue to Quebrada de Jerez, a large canyon channelling the waters entering Toconao.
The next stop will be Laguna Chaxa, a lagoon in the middle of the Atacama Salt Flat, home to beautiful Chilean and Andean flamingoes. We continue driving towards Miscanti and Miñiques Lagoons – undisputed highlights of the region – full of turquoise water that contrasts with the autumnal colours of the Altiplanic lands. A truly incredible landscape, creating an unforgettable memory of the region.

Day 3, Tatio Geysers
Atacama, Chile.
The very early wake-up call from the hotel will be well worth it when we arrive at the amazing Geysers of Tatio and see them in action. From almost 900 meters below the earth, boiling steam bursts up to 40 meters over the surface of the earth. A scrumptious breakfast will be served upon arrival before we walk through the geothermal fields with the geysers erupting nearby. As we drive back, there is a magnificent view of the Tocopurri and Sairecabur volcanoes.
We arrive back in town in time for lunch time. The afternoon will be free to rest or explore San Pedro after the early start, high altitude and low temperature we faced in the morning.

Day 4, Goodbye Atacama!
Atacama, Chile.
We take the final day of the trip to relax and for example wander around the village, visit its handicraft shops church on our own. In the afternoon we are driven to Calama’s Airport to take our flight back to the capital… Adiós Atacama!.
