Chile is famously known for its lovable environment, people from different places come here to explore its beauty. The Atacama Desert is considered as one of the driest places of the earth; since 400 years, few areas of the desert have not received any rainfall. Its unique location between two mountain ranges is responsible for the extreme aridness.
Welcome to Santiago. You are met on arrival, and taken to your hotel in the center of this scenic city. The majestic Andean Mountain Range anchors the city and can be seen from almost anywhere in town.
This morning discover Santiago, the capital of Chile, and alive with fascinating architecture, a rich history, natural beauty and a dynamic economy. Santiago contains evocative remains of its colonial past set alongside ultramodern, high-rise buildings. It has a bustling business district that exists alongside boulevards of street vendors and local artisans selling their wares. Visit San Cristobal Hill, a beautiful park noted for its monumental sculpture of the Virgin Mary. This afternoon, fly to Calama in northern Chile. You are met upon arrival, and then driven through moonscape surroundings. Arrive at your accommodations in the village of San Pedro de Atacama, an oasis in the barren desert. San Pedro de Atacama at 8,000 feet is called ‘The Valley of the Moon.’ Your luxurious lodge is tucked away in a valley of serene beauty, nestled in the shadow of the Pukará de Quitor ruins, with the San Pedro River winding alongside. This is the perfect base for exploring the desert, cultural encounters, or simply absorbing the breathtaking landscape.
Enjoy two full days of exploration. Please remember when choosing an excursion that the elevation at your hotel is 8,000 feet and might effect your endurance. The lodge offers a wide repertoire of activities: each day, based on climate conditions and guest abilities, eight options are available. All excursions are limited to small groups and led by resident experts; and range from easy to challenging in their difficulty. All excursions are done by vehicle, bicycle or on foot.
