It is very cold so take a coat. You do not get very near to the lagoons which is not what is shown in the brochures. The trip is worth it for the views they are breathtaking. Don't go with Turistour from San Pedro they are rubbish!!!

Of our travels in the Atacama, this was probably my least favorite. The drive was long, beautiful, but long, and altho the view was amazing up here, there wasn't all that much to do once you got here. If you have limited time to spend in San Pedro, I would do other excursions.

The air is thinner and the sun is brighter than you've ever seen,when you are at 4.300+ mts above sea level. Walkinga round does feel different. And what you see around you is ...stunning. The color of the sky is unrivaled here. The deepest shades of blue.

Imagine a paradise. This is the lagoons and altiplanicas Miscanti Miñiques. You can go to the rental car. The lagoons are 120km distant from San Pedro de Atacama. The road is good and well signposted. You must leave SPA toward Socaire and then Paso Sico (border between Chile and Argentina). After Socaire signs point the way ace and Lagunas Miñiques

these locations are relatively high in altitude, so prepare yourself. they can be very pretty, but it will depend on the location of the sun and cloud cover etc.

This tour takes you to the salt pans where you'll be able to see flamingos and other birds and the expansive salt pans. The salt pans are surrounded by several volcanos and the scenery is amazing. In the afternoon you'll be taken to the high plateau lagoons - these are breath-taking and shouldn't be missed. I would recommend this tour,... More
