San Pedro de Atacama, located in the driest desert in the world, is the starting point of a series of trips that will take you to explore unique landscapes of incomparable beauty, where it is possible to find wildlife, in its natural habitat. This small town just 1 hour from the airport and in the middle of an oasis, an ancient human settlement, combines the tranquility of a bucolic environment and the activity of the excursions that take you to visit places as impressive as the Tatio Geysers, the Valley of the Moon, Salar de Tara, Cordillera de la Sal, volcanoes, salt flats, and lagoons.
