  • At night in the Atacama Desert, don't forget to look up. This is one of the best stargazing locations on earth!

Package Overview

If you dream of going to Mars but don't have the funds, Chile's Atacama Desert is the next best thing! Under skies of infinite stars, discover the world's driest desert that's anything but a desolate wilderness.

Begin and end your adventure in Santiago, a city nestled between the Andes and the Pacific Ocean. Often overlooked, the capital is now a destination for food lovers, artists and culture fiends who come for the city's exciting array of restaurants, museums, plazas, and parks. Go on a tour of the historical downtown and have the nights free to see the city on your own!

From Santiago, fly two hours north to Calama near San Pedro de Atacama. On five guided tours, explore the desert's singular landscapes that are quite unlike anywhere else on earth. Vast salt flats, active geysers and ancient archaeological sites are just a few of the extraordinary places you'll discover on this trip!
