DISCOVER THE SURREAL LANDSCAPES OF THE FAUNA ANDINA EDUARDO AVAROA RESERVE IN A SINGLE DAY !!
We start early in the morning (07:00 am) with a transfer from San Pedro de Atacama in Chile to the border with Bolivia Hito Cajón. At this point we start our Full Day expedition in 4x4.
A strange scenario opens before our eyes, dominated by the Licancabur Volcano, the Laguna Blanca and the Laguna Verde, the first treasure housed within the REA. After a brief stop, we continue the path to the main nesting center of 3 endemic species of flamingos, Laguna Colorada, where you will feel that you are in a place outside this world.
Among the volcanoes, which are guardians of the Reserve, you will be lucky enough to appreciate various species of Andean fauna: Vicuñas, Suris, Vizcachas, Andean foxes and flamingos, among others. It is difficult to continue the trip without stopping every so often to photograph the exotic animals that pose for visitors in this windy and cold environment.
If you still did not feel Martian enough, it's time for the high point. At almost 5,000 meters above sea level, we will walk among the fumaroles of a semi-active volcano; the Gueisers Sol de Mañana. Then we will visit the Salar de Chalviri that combines the white of the borax, the ocher of the desert and the blue of the water in a landscape without equal. Here we will take a healing bath in the thermal springs of Polques and enjoy lunch in total tranquility.
As we leave, we will see a masterpiece of the wind and the Andean peaks in Las Damas del Desierto. And we will close the circle of this trip with a last visit to the Green Lagoon that will have been transformed for the moment of farewell.
Finally we arrived again at Hito Cajón to return to San Pedro de Atacama after a surreal day in Bolivia.
Perfect tour for: Small families, couples, groups of friends or people who want to know the Eduardo Avaroa Andean Fauna Reserve safely and away from the crowds of tourists.
