Located in the oasis of San Pedro de Atacama, explora Atacama was built in a 17-hectare plot as a base from where to explore the desert, the Andes highlands, and its surroundings. All our programs include accommodation, transfers to and from the airport, meals and drinks, and a menu of more than 40 exploration routes.
Huge sand dunes, salt pans, impressive volcanoes and cloudless skies inspired the design of each of our explorations. These can be completed by hiking, cycling, horseback riding or through a combination of hiking and by van.
San Pedro de Atacama and its surrounding areas are one of Chile’s most enigmatic territories. The diversity of the landscape is one of the most popular attractions. Aware of this, we take our travelers to explore every corner. Just to mention a few experiences that explora Atacama propose, we ride horses through the red land plains and huge sand dunes, characteristic of one of the driest desert in the world, visit turquoise lagoons that are located over 4,000 meters (13,123 f.a.s.l.) in the highlands, walk through geysers, and follow green riverbeds in an area where water is a limited resource.
Either on foot, horseback riding, or bike –including high mountain ascents and astronomical sessions– over 40 explorations take our travelers to the cultural richness of this fascinating territory. Our explorations are always led by a competent guide from our School of Guides and are made up of groups of up to eight travelers. They have different length and difficulty levels. The altitude of our explorations ranges between 2,800 (9,186 f.a.s.l.) and over 5,000 meters above sea level (16.404 f.a.s.l.); consequently, some of them need prior acclimatization. For safety reasons, high mountain hiking requires a minimum of two-night acclimatization so that travelers can get used to high altitudes and then scale up slowly towards higher mountain peaks.
