Luxury travel to the Atacama Desert
Dazzling. There's No Other Place Like it on Earth.
This is a truly other-worldly landscape of volcanoes, lagoons and salt-flats. Indeed, the Atacama has been used on more that one occasion as a Mars location for films.
What's more, despite its remote location and arid climate, the Atacama is home to world-class hotels. This means you can enjoy your home comforts in a true wilderness.
When to go
- October to December or March to May are great times to visit as you can enjoy the region in its more relaxed, tranquil and remote period.
- Due to potential heavy rains in February, we generally recommend not to visit the Atacama then.
What to do
- Visit the Tatio geysers
- Take a tour of the Moon and Death valley
- Explore the salt lakes in the region
- Star gazing
- Walk around the sleepy desert town of San Pedro de Atacama
