Details of Day Tours

We will leave today from our hotel at approximately 2:00 p.m. on the way to the Cejar Lagoon, located about 20 km approximately from San Pedro de Atacama, at about 2,600 meters above sea level.

 

This turquoise lagoon is surrounded by  salts in various forms, an image where the sky and the mountains intermingle to leave us speechless.

 

Laguna Cejar is characterized by its high salt content, similar to that of the Dead Sea in Israel, which makes it very easy to float in its waters due to the high density of water.

 

It is surrounded by a unique natural environment, mountains and salt dunes that create a landscape surreal. We can enjoy a dip in the lagoon, experimenting with floating unique, but we recommend avoiding submerging your head due to the high content of salt.

 

The Laguna Cejar is a popular spot for bird watching and photography, especially during sunset, when the sun reflects off the surface from the lagoon.

 

Also today we can visit two more places, part of these unique landscapes of the Atacama Desert.

The Ojos del Salar, which are two freshwater wells located a very short distance. They are called "Eyes" for being natural sources of water that sprout from the desert floor and They create small pools of fresh water. Without a doubt, they are an oasis in the middle of the desert and they contrast strongly with the salinity of Laguna Cejar.

Here we can enjoy of the Ojos del Salar and give us a refreshing bath in the cool and crystalline waters surrounded by the aridity of the environment.

 

The last of the places that we will visit today will be the Laguna Tebenquiche, a salty lagoon that is located in the middle of the Salar de Atacama and will give us panoramic views of the surrounding mountains, including the Andes.

 

The lagoon is home to a variety of birds, including flamingos, that we will often find here looking for food. We will take a close look at your elegance and its colorful plumage in its natural habitat, it will be an experience unique.

 

One of the moments more magical will be enjoying a beautiful sunset in one of these lagoons, where we will enjoy a rich and complete cocktail while we watch as the sky reflects its colors on the surface of the lagoon.

 

Then there is experience, we will return to the center of San Pedro to leave you near the municipal parking, from there you can explore the town a bit or return to your hotel on your own, if you prefer to take the private service we can Drop you off at the hotel where we picked you up.

 

Be sure to bring warm clothes for the return and a camera to capture the impressive unforgettable views and moments. It is also important to follow the instructions security provided by the guide to enjoy this experience of safe and respectful way with the environment.
