Atacama Desert is the Frontier of the Stars

Few places on earth are as simultaneously harmonious and contrasting as the Atacama Desert – lunar, Martian, Dali-ish and even Monet-ish. Witness nature painting on its own canvas as the Atacama Desert reveals its otherworldly landscapes. In this infinite land, find yourself immersed in every sense. Sample a speck of algae that has survived for decades without rain. Hear the wind rushing through canyons. Smell the disorienting salty fragrance of Altiplano lagoons. Witness the majesty of an ever-changing sky. Feel the still smooth touch of the walls of ancient ruins – the very same walls our ancestors once touched. This is one of nature’s masterpieces. Every single experience here will amass into a mosaic of inspiration. At that very moment, it will become your very own masterpiece.

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.
Explore the Atacama Desert
The driest desert in the world, Atacama is a surrealistic world for exploring and finding yourself amazed by its stony terrain, salt lakes, sand dunes and lava trails.
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.
