San Pedro de Atacama Desert
Back to Top
Perhaps because you are in the highest and driest desert in the world that you feel as though you can reach out and touch the sky. The eternally blue, clear days and the brilliant starlit nights truly make you feel as though you are part of the heavens themselves.
Reinforcing this out of earth experience is the fact that parts of the desert actually look like the surface of Mars.
The small village of San Pedro de Atacama is located in an oasis in this Altiplano, surrounded by the highest volcanoes in the Andes.
In addition to the stark and vibrant beauty of the landscape, this area is also a fascinating site because of its rich archeological heritage. It is considered the archeological capital of Chile
