Travel is all about the journey
That’s why there’s more to each exploration program than simply reaching certain locations and sites in Atacama; it’s about getting inside Atacama and about an inner journey of your own choosing.
explora offers over 40 different ways to discover the many seen and unseen facets of Atacama. As you become acclimated, you can select those that are more demanding in difficulty and duration. The final version of your choice is determined together with your guide and the other participants, and may be subject to weather conditions.
Through guided hikes, horseback or bicycle rides, and van excursions, you’ll have the opportunity to plumb the depths and scale the heights of Atacama’s nature and history. For an additional fee, you can arrange for your own private exploration program.
All of our guides speak fluent Spanish and English, are highly knowledgeable about the Atacama area, and have Wilderness First Responder (WFR) certification – for providing emergency medical care in remote locations.
While you may want to climb one of the area peaks during the initial part of your stay, you must first become acclimated. To ascend to more than 4,000 meters (13,123 feet) above sea level, you must undergo a high altitude medical check-up at explora Atacama.
Liabilities: explora reserves the right to alter, change or eliminate parts or the totality of the exploration programs without prior notice, when advisable for the well-being and safety of our guests.
