Bound by the Pacific Ocean and the Andes mountains, Chile’s Atacama Desert is the driest place on Earth. This lunar landscape is home to some of nature’s greatest spectacles from wind-sculpted canyons, salt lakes, active volcanoes, sandy deserts and spurting geysers. Most visitors to the region make the welcome town of San Pedro de Atacama their base; a picturesque, small town with tree-lined plazas and a 17th-century church, this was once a fertile oasis where the indigenous people thrived. Whilst in town, at sunrise head to El Tatio to watch as the geyser field comes to life, spot flamingos poised in bright green and red lakes, set foot on the world’s 3rd largest salt flat and watch the sunset over the Valley of the Moon. One of the world’s foremost stargazing centres, here the skies are huge and the air is clear, by night head to an observatory to study the southern constellations. Offering an abundance of activities; this is an adventurers paradise and offers a multitude of sightseeing attractions to otherworldly sites.
