Discover the Magical Desert
Get ready for adventure, as you are welcomed by our team at the El Loa airport in Calama - then it's off to start exploring the most stunning desert in the world! Travel along the Domeyko Mountain Range to the village of San Pedro de Atacama, gateway to the desert. In the afternoon, you will pass through the Salt Mountain Range and head straight to one of the highlights of the desert: Moon Valley. Spend time exploring the great sand dunes, the amphitheater, and the natural salt monument "Las Tres Marias". Bring the day to a close by watching the sun set over the glowing sand - with your own special view of the gorgeous valley.
Surround Yourself with Nature - and Flamingos!
Start your day off with a delicious breakfast at the hotel. You will then head out to experience the high plain lagoons of Miscanti and Miñiques, before enjoying your lunch in the town of Socaire. In the afternoon, you will travel to the Atacama Salt Flats and visit the marvelous Chaxa Lagoon and Flamingos National Reserve, where you can observe three of the six different kinds of flamingos, all here in Chile! Continue your journey to the town of Toconao and visit the San Lucas Church and Campanario Tower. In the evening, you will return to San Pedro for a relaxing night of rest in your hotel.
Float in Lagoon Waters
Begin your day with breakfast at your hotel. Spend your morning with a visit to Cejar Lagoon. Located in the middle of the Atacama Salt Flat, this lagoon has a higher floating level than the Dead Sea, due to its high concentration of salt and lithium! Don't forget your bathing suit - you can enjoy the waters yourself with a relaxing float. Afterwards, you will return to the comfort of your hotel to relax for the evening.
Watch Geysers Shoot into the Sky
Greet the sunrise with an excursion to the world's highest geyser field! El Tatio Geysers erupt spectacularly each day at dawn, creating unusual mineral formations and spouting high clouds of steam. Then take an exciting trek to observe more geothermal activities of the area. After that, you will be served a light breakfast before taking advantage of the opportunity to soak in the thermal waters that surround you. Before returning to San Pedro, you will be guided to the village of Machuca. Formerly known for grazing llamas, the town is famous today for its adobe, cactus wood, straw buildings, and its Andean handicrafts. In the afternoon you will be taken back to the airport to say farewell to Chile.
