San Pedro de Atacama and its surrounding areas are one of Chile’s most enigmatic territories. The diversity of the landscape is one of the most popular attractions. Aware of this, we take our travelers to explore every corner. Just to mention a few experiences that explora Atacama propose, we ride horses through the red land plains and huge sand dunes, characteristic of one of the driest desert in the world, visit turquoise lagoons that are located over 4,000 meters (13,123 f.a.s.l.) in the highlands, walk through geysers, and follow green riverbeds in an area where water is a limited resource.

Either on foot, horseback riding, or bike –including high mountain ascents and astronomical sessions– over 40 explorations take our travelers to the cultural richness of this fascinating territory. Our explorations are always led by a competent guide from our School of Guides and are made up of groups of up to eight travelers.  They have different length and difficulty levels.  The altitude of our explorations ranges between 2,800 (9,186 f.a.s.l.)  and over 5,000 meters above sea level (16.404 f.a.s.l.) ; consequently, some of them need prior acclimatization. For safety reasons, high mountain hiking requires a minimum of two night acclimatization so that travelers can get used to high altitudes and then scale up slowly towards higher mountain peaks.

A minimum of four nights are recommended for an exploration experience in which you can really know what Atacama is about, although we are sure that after each exploration day you will want to extend your stay to explore more of this wonderful place. A six night program is a good option to get a fuller sense of the area and even explore highlands or volcanoes.

Day 2-3.  Atacama Desert

Full & half day excursions of your choice. Meals: breakfast, lunch, and dinner

Day 4. Depart Atacama Desert / Calama

Departure transfer to the airport for your flight back to Santiago. Meals: breakfast

*Between mid-December and the beginning of March, occasional rains and snow in higher areas result in what is called the Altiplano Winter. During these months and due to unstable weather conditions in the area, some of our explorations could be subject to changes or even cancelled in order to protect our travelers’ safety. 


Note: All itineraries are subject to change, due to weather and other conditions. All times indicated are approximate, and are also subject to change.
