ITINERARY

Day 1. SAN PEDRO DE ATACAMA

Welcome to Calama, gateway to Chile's incredible Atacama Desert. Upon arrival, you will be met and transferred to the Alto Atacama Desert Lodge & Spa in San Pedro de Atacama. Alto Atacama Desert Lodge & Spa is the only lodge in the San Pedro region that is totally enveloped by natural surroundings. Located in the lush Catarpe Valley of the Salt Mountain Range, just over a mile from the plaza of San Pedro, the Alto Atacama’s design was influenced by local village architecture and conceived to blend seamlessly into its environment and appear as a part of the terracotta-colored ridge that rises behind it. The setting, the sweeping views, the tranquility and silence, and the hotel’s wonderful outdoor lounge spaces make the Alto Atacama a destination unto itself, and unlike any other hotel property in the region. [D]

Day 2. SAN PEDRO DE ATACAMA

Choose from either a full-day or two half-day excursions from over 30 different options across cultural, contemplative, astronomical, adventure and expedition categories, to begin your discovery of this incredible landscape. Or you may choose to enjoy the hotel, indulge in a spa treatment or make use of the available bicycles. [B,L,D]
