Chile. San pedro de atacama



Departure from your hotel in San Pedro. The first stop will be in the town of Toconao, one of the most picturesque in the region, where you can appreciate an original architecture in liparite stone, with its old church from 1744, declared National Monument in 1951. You will be able to take a walk and meet the locals who work in fine woolen handicrafts. Next we will visit the "Salar de Atacama", which is part of the Los Flamencos National Reserve. Here you will enjoy spectacularly beautiful scenery where you will find a lagoon (Laguna Chaxa) divided into several bodies of water, where salt crusts are especially abundant and where communities of 3 types of flamingos are found: the James, the Andean and the Chilean. We will pass through the town of Socaire, where we will see its old church, before visiting the beautiful "Lagunas Altiplanicas", Miscanti and Miñiques, which are located at 4,500 m.a.s.l. Within spectacular landscapes, you will be able to appreciate varied shades of color in the mountains, as well as the unique flora and fauna, which are found only in these protected areas. The altitude allows you to be very close to mountains and volcanoes, some of which are sacred and have inspired beautiful legends of the Atacama Desert. After a stop for lunch in Socaire, return to your hotel in San Pedro.
