The Atacama Salt Flats and Toconao

    What to Expect
    On this tour we visit the Atacama Salt Flats, where the Los Flamencos Natural Reserve is located, a surprisingly large and arid landscape stretching 100 km from north to south. You can also marvel at the amazing Chaxa Lagoon, a spectacularly beautiful setting, which is split into various clear water lagoons, inhabited by both Andean and James flamingos. We then head to Toconao, a traditionally colonial-style village, famous for the bell tower of the San Lucas church, which has been declared as a National Monument. Agriculture and crafts are the principal source of income for its inhabitants who offer proudly crafted gifts made from volcanic rock.

    We unfortunately chose the wrong time of year April, mid autumn. The experience was great but there were too few flamingos and those few had lost there colour. As for Toconao it gave an opportunity to stretch our legs.
