I took a tour of both valleys, but I saw many people cycling there as it is relatively close to San Pedro. Both feature stunning desert scenery, and be sure to be there at sunset, when the sun shines on the volcanoes and provides beautiful photo ops.

Valle de la Luna is an excellent place to capture photos of the stunning desert landscapes that occupy the area surrounding San Pedro de Atacama. Late afternoon to early evening would be the ideal time to go as the light is optimum for photo opportunities. Make sure to catch the sunset at Coyote Rock, which offers stunning vistas of a...

The place is amazing! Stunning! The cavern worths for the beauty and energy of the crystal salt. Visiting in the morning in better. You can take pictures with no one in yours. We visited twice. During the morning we could enjoy all the placed with nobody else. And then, in another day, we went back to watch the sunset in... More

Special place in the desert, there you can feel calm in the top of mountains and insade the caves. Uncanny!

Places to climb, walk or cycle - tour or on your own. The views are breathtaking. Great way to capture the San Pedro landscape :)

I just loved those landscapes!!! They were spectacular! Also the guide that we had was really good. The scenery made it seem like we were on another planet, it was priceless. The sunset is also a remarkable feature of this trip.

Not to be missed. Unearthly landscapes. You feel like you are on the moon or mars. Stunning geological formations and valleys of sand dunes (which you can run down). Worth a visit for a few hours before sunset to see the changing colors of the sand and formations.

A side trip out to the Valley of the Moon is interesting but not the best trip we have done, the sunset is the highlight so a late afternoon trip is advisable. The salt hills are worth seeing but don't expect too much.

We popped into the Cosmo Andino office on the main street in San Pedro the day before to book the tour, which lasts from 2.30pm to around 7.00pm. Even on what was a fairly cloudy day, the tour was really good - stunning scenery and a decent sunset, apparently we were lucky as the rain earlier in the day had... More
