This is a must do ! It was the highlight of my stay in Atacama region. Landscapes are endless and gorgeous, colors are so sharp ! You are in the middle of nowhere, alone and taken care of by the tour guide. Take some time to get used to the altitude (I'd say at least 48 hours at san pedro's... More

Experience all the splendour of nature at high altitudes. Incredible views! A must do at San Pedro. Don't forget to drink water and if you get sick or have headache , try the Chachacoa tea.

Wonderful!!!!!!!! We did this tour at our last day at Atacama and it was nice because we were more adapted to the altitude. It is a long trip but we have nice landscape views during all the trip. Arriving there is like you are entering into a painting, so beautiful it is!
