Travel Module Altiplano

Wide sandy beaches, gigantic volcanoes and Andean fauna – experience the breathtaking Altiplano of Chile and the beautiful coastal cities of Iquique and Arica.


Your trip to the great north of Chile begins in Iquique. This pleasant desert city presents itself with fantastic beaches and a colonial architecture rich in history. In the following four days you travel to the spectacular Altiplano of the Chilean Andes as part of a private guided tour. You visit the abandoned mining town of Humberstone and geoglyphs from another time. In the Lauca and Isluga National Parks you admire volcanoes over 6.000 meters high, colorful lagoons and the wild fauna of the Andean highlands with their llamas, vicuñas and alpacas. Bathe in hot, natural springs and go for short hikes in the Andean lake district. Explore deserted Andean villages, learn about the unvarnished everyday life of the region's inhabitants and get to know the background of local, traditional cattle farming. Your tour ends with a stay in the attractive coastal city of Arica, the northernmost point of Chile.
