Atacama Desert Adventure Trip

The desert is a place of surreal landscapes. Here, you can trek through narrow canyons, cross capacious ravines and discover fields of flowers that bloom only every few years. Beginning at dawn, we wait for the sun to rise, revealing its striking colors that gradually melt into the landscape. Later, you can plunge into crystalline altiplano lakes. After becoming re-energized, delight in an on-site picnic of local cuisine…which you can, of course, pair with a fine Chilean wine.

Atacama Geysers and Hotsprings
One of the biggest highlights of a trip to San Pedro de Atacama is seeing the sun rising through the steam of a boiling geyser before you slip into a warm hot-spring pool on a typically chilly morning. Simply divine..!! (Photo: Troita)
Flamingo Spotting
Adding to the magical (if not surreal) character of the Atacama Desert are the huge numbers of wonderful pink flamingos that flock to the lakes every year to feed and breed in the desert. Magnificent sights and great photo ops..!!
Atacama Stargazing
Experience the best stargazing opportunities in the world. Atacama’s high altitude, combined with its low-population density, means there’s virtually no light pollution - perfect conditions to almost reach out and touch the Milky Way.
Floating in the Desert
As if the idea of lakes found in the desert wasn’t enough, these pools are so salty that you can float effortlessly in them, with the surreal feeling of having half your body out of the water. It’s a Dead Sea experience but without the crowds.
Moon Valley Trekking
Exploring Atacama’s Moon Valley is like being …well… on the moon. This lunar landscape is what attracts many travelers to this desert. Here, you’re free to dune climb, cavern crawl and desert hike to your heart’s content.
Atacama's Luxury Lodging
Atacama possesses a number of stylish lodges inspired by local architecture. Made of local stone and wood, these blend the traditional with the luxurious, while also featuring swimming pools for refreshing dips to beat the desert heat.
