What our customers think
What a fantastic contrast to the Patagonian area. We had the perfect sunset at Death Valley, the sunrise swim in the hot springs at the Tatio geysers was definitely a highlight and the geysers and scenery stunning. Read the full review

The Atacama was a great place to start our trip. We loved the high steppes and the wildlife, the geology, history and the views. We were glad of our extra day to visit some archeology sites.
