The Atacama oases, in the middle of the driest desert in the world, are situated at 2,500 meters above sea level, making the Atacama not only the driest, but also the highest desert on earth. The outlandish geography of volcanoes, salt flats and high altitude wetlands, has an unparalleled appeal.

But the oasis of San Pedro is simply an introduction. It is the last area where human life is possible; where a visitor can still be harbored. Once you leave San Pedro towards the altiplanos and the volcanoes, you can truly perceive remoteness, where one experiences an entirely different world, an untamed place far from civilization as we know it.

The program at explora en Atacama, based at Hotel de Larache in San Pedro, puts visitors in the middle of a fantasy land ripe for exploration and adventure.
