explora Atacama, Uyuni lodge and camps: bases for exploration
The perfect match between simplicity and comfort, rest and exploration, luxury and the essential. Each accommodation throughout the travesía is thought out to help you restore your energy and nourish your desire for exploration day after day, stop after stop.
The architecture of all our lodge in Uyuni and camps in the Altiplano has been planned as to reduce interference with natural surroundings as much as possible, and to highlight the landscapes that host every construction. In the words of Chilean architect Max Núñez, his project aims to “provide the traveler the experience of a lifetime in the Altiplano”.
