access_time3:00 pm
The tour starts with the pick up at your accommodation in San Pedro de Atacama. Depending on your location, the bus will pick you up between 3:00-4:00 P.M. When the group is gathered, you will head to the Atacama Salt Flats to enjoy its spectacular lagoons. Let yourself be conquered by the most turquoise of blues, Laguna Cejar, a lake even saltier than the Dead Sea, a magnificent palette of colors surrounded by imposing volcanoes. Undoubtedly, a landscape that you will not forget.
The road continues, and the Ojos del Salar awaits you. Do you know his story? Two deep freshwater pools that look like piercing eyes of intense blue and constitute an oasis in the heart of one of the aridest deserts in the world. Did you know that these waters are suitable for bathing? Will you dare to try them?
Few travelers venture into such deep water, so if you prefer to skip this part of the trip, no problem! Your time has come to enjoy this iconic landscape, connect with nature and take your best pictures.
After this replenishing moment, you will arrive at your last stop: La Laguna Tebenquiche. You will appreciate the saline crusts, accompanied by a great spectacle as you see the Andes reflected in its waters at sunset. In the home of the flamingos, the sky merges with the desert and the salt creating a magical moment. With it, you put the final touch to a day that will surely remain forever in your memory, and in your gallery!
