Travel Module San Pedro de Atacama

Geysers, moonscapes and starry skies – experience the glamour of the Atacama Desert around San Pedro de Atacama.

Overview

Steaming geysers, bizarre lunar landscapes, majestic volcanoes and the magical starry sky this and more is presented by the Atacama Desert around the oasis of San Pedro de Atacama. With its isolated vitality, San Pedro appears like the central vein of the driest desert in the world. Experience instantly this duality of such a lively place in a seemingly hostile environment. Pink-feathered flamingos gather on the shores of Andean waters, watched over by cone-shaped volcanoes. And between small desert settlements with traditional adobe architecture stretches the crusted salt field of the immeasurable Salar de Atacama. You enter the Andes and ride to the craters of the El Tatio Volcano at about 4.300 meters above sea level. Smoke rises from the bubbling geysers, in which you can bathe at dawn, while vicuñas and rheas roam the mountains. At Valle del Arcoíris, the rock stratifications created by clay and minerals resemble a rainbow in the middle of the desert. Reddish, green, yellow and white earth tones merge into a splendid play of colors. And Valle de la Luna looks like a lunar landscape, like the ground of an alien planet. As the sun dips on the horizon and the surreal salt mountains darken to a reddish blue, you climb the sandy dunes and let yourself be captivated by this preeminent show of Mother Earth.
