Live one of the most complete tours visiting the highlights of the Atacama desert !!
We start the experience at night (according to the lunar calendar), we will visit the Village of Tulor, an archeological site that shows the lifestyle of the ancient Lickantatay culture. The local guide will take us to know a little about the interpretation of the stars and the night sky, as well as their importance for the ancestral cultures of the region. After a cocktail sharing with the community, we will return to the hotel.
Early in the morning we leave for the town of Socaire to visit the Miscanti and Miñiques lagoons, where its turquoise waters in front of the desert landscape will make us feel like on another planet.
We continue our journey to the salt region and visit the Salar de Aguas Calientes. We will walk through the geological formations of the Red Iron Stones until we reach a place almost unknown by conventional tourists, the Tucaytu Salar, from where you can see the incredible Salar de Atacama.
We will visit the Interpretation Center to learn more about the fauna and flora of the region and we will finish our walk in the Oasis of Toconao.
Lunch is not included, but we highly recommend the restaurant "Senderos de Coyo" which is owned by a local family belonging to Ayllu (indigenous community).
