We pick you up at the Calama airport and transfer you to the oasis of San Pedro de Atacama, located at 2,407 meters / 7,890 feet above sea level. It is a 1-hour drive to the explora Atacama hotel, where your arrival sparks an immersion in the essence of the remote. After your welcome, we introduce you to the region with a talk either just before lunch, or after your first exploration, depending on the time you arrive. In the end of the day, you and a guide discuss and decide where and what you will be exploring in the next few days.
We do recommend you start off by exploring the oasis, the La Sal and Domeyko mountain ranges, the Atacama salt flat and the unparalleled canyons, landscapes and ecosystems. After that, adventuring yourself over the Altiplano’s 4,000 m.a.s.l / 13,123 f.a.s.l. is an experience you will not regret. But above all, experiencing the Puritama hot springs in explora’s Puritama Natural Reserve with your own senses is a must.
This is the perfect start for the transforming journey ahead of you. Warm up body and mind by unravelling the many charms that astonishingly bloom in the Atacama.
