The tour begins with the departure from the selected hotels in San Pedro de Atacama, to begin our journey to the Salar de Atacama, the largest in Chile.

There will visit Los Flamencos National Reserve, which is divided into seven sectors located at different heights, each with different climatic conditions, which causes each sector to have different fauna and flora.

Then the road crosses the Tropic of Capricorn and pass through the town of Socaire, located at 3500 meters above the sea level. the main highlight there is its beautiful church of volcanic stone. Near the village is the sector of Miscanti and Miñique lagoons, located at over 4000 meters above sea level, in a beautiful setting that highlights the beauty of its bluish waters, born from the melting of the volcanoes. Also, there we will find a rich and varied fauna, composed of flamingos, ducks juarjual, rheas, hawks and tucúqueres, among others
