Details of this Activity

Day 1: Laguna  Baltinache + Cordillera de la Sal + Valle de la Muerte Viewpoint

Departure from hotels at 10:00 am. We will visit the Baltinache Lagoons, a group of seven lagoons located 45 kilometres from the village. Its salinity level is similar to the Dead Sea and you can swim and float in the first and last of the lagoons. The intense turquoise colour of the waters surrounded by salt formations makes this place one of the most visually stunning. We continue to the Cordillera de la Sal, which was formed millions of years ago and has a great variety of natural sculptures, different types of stratification and colours due to the mineral diversity of the place. Finally, we head to the Valle de la Muerte Viewpoint, from where we can observe the strange formations where rocky natural sculptures and sand dunes abound. This place is also a clear example of how arid the Atacama Desert can be, since no plants grow here, which is why it has been classified as the most inhospitable place on the planet. Return to the hotel at 18:00 hs. Includes lunch.


Day 2: Valle de la Luna + Laguna Cejar + Ojos del Salar + Tebenquiche

We leave the hotel at 09:00 hs and head to the Valle de la Luna (Moon Valley), which has a series of colours and textures very attractive for its similarity to the lunar surface. From a large dune it is possible to appreciate the wonderful and surprising surroundings of this area. Then, we go to Laguna Cejar, a unique landscape of turquoise waters and volcanoes, where we can enjoy a swim and float on the lagoon, due to its salt content. We continue to the Ojos del Salar, two very deep blue freshwater lagoons, located in the middle of the Salar de Atacama. Finally we will go to Tebenquiche, a lagoon formed by the thawing and rains that fall during the year, and for this reason, the landscape around us changes a lot. Return to the hotel 17:00 hs. Includes lunch.


Day 3: Geyser Tatio + Guatín Trekking + Puritama Hot Springs

Transfer from the hotel at 07:00 hs and visit to Geyser Tatio, the highest geothermal field in the world (4,200 mts high), where from early morning we can appreciate an impressive activity of steam fumaroles produced by the high temperatures of its watery craters. Afterwards, we will go to the area of Guatín Canyon for a hike, enjoying the giant cactus and the impressive scenery along the way. Then we take the path that leads us to the Puritama Hot Springs, where you can take a relaxing bath in wells of thermal and healing waters. Return to the hotel 17:00 hs. Includes breakfast, snack and lunch


Day 4: Tuyacto + Piedras Rojas + Lagunas Altiplanicas + Salar de Atacama

We leave your hotel around 11:00 am to visit the Piedra Rojas area, but first, we make a stop at the Laguna de Tuyacto, to appreciate this beautiful high altitude lagoon.  Once in Piedras Rojas, we will hike through this reddish landscape and then head to the area of Lagunas Altiplanicas, to discover a beautiful scenery that is divided into several water mirrors inhabited by a large number of flamingos and other birds. Finally, we will visit the Salar de Atacama: the largest salt deposit in Chile. It has an arid white surface that extends over 300,000 km2 and can be appreciated thanks to the clarity of the air. Return to the hotel around 21:00 hs. Includes lunch and snack.

Day 5: Legía Lake & Aguas Calientes Salt Flat

An adventure day in the altitude. Departing at 6:00 am, we will climb until the chilean frontiere at Huaitiquina to know the most beautiful roads of Atacama. 
We will start with a nice breakfast at the foot of Legía Lake, where you will be able to admire the perfect reflection of impressive volcanos on the lake's superficie ... magic.
Next, we will visit the Salt Flat named Aguas Calientes, surrounded by slopes and volcanos that will make you feel the altiplano like nowhere else in the world. The tour finishes at 15 pm.
