The first thing is that when we were going to book they said we would have a bus driver and a guide that speaks our language. To make the long story short, as we were not that much people they booked us with another agency,...More

Amazing sights of vicunas, blue lakes, volcanoes and high desert. It was coldish when we were there so dress in layers. Only 1 working toilet, which added some charm to the excursion. This is Atacama desert at its best. I loved it here!

The Atacama Desert is one of the most beautiful places I've ever seen and these lagoons are no exception. The landscape is very different to Valle de la Luna and the Tatio Geysers, but no less stunning. We visited on a half day tour which...More

The Miscanti y Miniques lagunas are absolutely beautiful! The short walk between the lakes is stunning, such a beautiful landscape.

This was one of the highlights for me in the Desert of Atacama. I am from the South Pacific so used to the Sea but seeing a beautiful lagoon at that altitude was surreal.

These two lakes in neighbouring craters, 110km south of San Pedro, are part of the Reserva Nacional Los Flamencos. We visited as part of a Piedras Rojos (Red Rocks) tour. There was a bitter wind that chilled the air to minus temperatures; we were told it's...More

This area is well worth the effort of making the trip out from San Pedro. Apart from the scenery we saw several of the local chapur foxes and many small groups of vicuna wandering on the plains.

Drove here ourselves in a normal car and found the roads to be fairly good, well worth the drive the views are stunning, it is very high altitude though so if it bothers you just take things slowly.

The sandy road to reach the entrance to the lagunas was already a good experience, could do it without 4WD. Entrance was clp3000 pp what was fair, toilets included. These two lagunas were beautiful and sourrounded by mountains, but overall not the most special lagoons...More

They are very different experiences. Atacama is dry and arid, Lauca is wet. I found it very rewarding to visit both. As an added bonus, you will get to visit the saltpeter mines of Humberstone on the way up. We rented a car... More

Hi, sorry about the delay. We contracted all tours with INCANORTH EXPEDICIONES. They offer reasonable prices and, if you do not worry to much about comfort, it is a good option. It's in Toconao Street crossing with... More
