Desert & Altiplano, Chile
Each of our explorations has been carefully designed to awaken the most incredible experiences in the Atacama Desert. You can choose between hikes, horseback rides, astronomy and more. On the other hand, we want to tell you that some of the sectors where we explore are closed until further notice due to the pandemic, so we have found for other exploration options.
Our explorations in Atacama are divided into five different altitude zones, each with a set of unique geographic, cultural and biospheric characteristics. All explorations have been designed in order to gradually unveil the territory’s essence – either on foot, bicycle or from within the Explora observatory.
Our travelers have the possibility of choosing different explorations every day. These explorations have different lengths and difficulty levels.
