San Pedro De Atacama Trek

From: £1866.15**

Contrasting landscapes, wild rock formations, smoking volcanoes and brilliant white salt flats - this is San Pedro de Atacama.

This trekking holiday in the Altiplano of Chile's Atacama desert combines four days of treks with a vehicle tour to salt flats and altiplanic lakes, camping near indigenous villages and hotel accommodation in the town of San Pedro.

The Atacama desert is a top destination for travellers, located in the heart of Chile's Altiplano at around 2,400m and only 100 Km from Calama Airport.

Exploring with a difference

This journey involves trekking along mountain trails, wading through rivers and camping near the indigenous village of Rio Grande.

It also includes trekking through some of the driest parts of the planet and camping near the Machuca bofedales, grasslands brimming with wildlife.

Before going to sleep, the star filled skies will be the backdrop and possibly a shooting star or two as well.

The archaeological site of Quitor and the ghost town of San Bartolo are part of the itinerary, and you should be able to spot condors soaring overhead, guanacos roaming the plains and pink flamingoes at the Atacama salt flat.
