Atacama Desert

Spread the love

The Atacama Desert and altiplano (high plain) of Northern Chile and Northwest Argentina provide some of the most geographically breathtaking landscapes and culturally rich regions in South America. Pre-Columbian history dates back thousands of years, and still lives on today in traditional artisan crafts, festivals, and renowned archaeological museums. Expansive salt flats, unique fauna, moon-like landscape, majestic sunsets, and second-to-none stargazing brings new meaning to the phrase “natural wonders.” The Atacama Desert is considered the driest, non-polar desert in the world. Horseback riding through red soil esplanades, walking on landscapes that seem like taken from another world, and cycling through the Andes highlands are some of the experiences you can enjoy.
