We will remain at high-altitudes and see Death Valley rock formations from above, and then descend by old roads to the San Pedro oasis.

After the paved road ends, the towering rock formations of Monjes de la Pacana come into view. From there, we will head to Tara, an unexpected salt lake that is a photographer’s dream come true given its desolate landscape. In this area rife with captivating scenery and wildlife, we will have lunch and then return to the hotel.

The horses are mounted on the hotel grounds, and a local guide leads the rides, which range from beginner- to expert-level. Your outing will provide you a complete immersion in the desert and its mysteries as you follow trails of an age-old civilization at ambling gaits past lagoons, dunes, and canyons of the Andean foothills.

PM: Concluding this amazing Atacama experience, we will have a farewell lunch at the hotel before you pack up and are driven back to the Calama airport for your flight home or onward.
