The Atacama is a popular region of cinematic rock formations, billowing geysers and expansive salt flats.
The Atacama Desert in the north of Chile, the driest non-polar desert in the world, offers a cinematic landscapes which stretch as far as the snow-capped peaks of the Andes in the distance. The Atacama is the world as you have never seen it before: brightly coloured mineral lakes, thick-crusted salt flats, flocks of Andean flamingos silhouetted on the bright clue sky, wind-sculpted rock formations, and the cavernous Moon Valley. Here, stunning sunsets tinge the land rich hues of reds, pinks and browns for as far as the eye can see. The clear, unpolluted night-time skies and powerful telescopes of the Atacama offer some of the world's very best star gazing opportunities, close to San Pedro de Atacama.

A huge thanks to Veloso Team. Everything went very smoothly which considering the number of flights, meetings, hotels, guides etc. was a miracle. Well done.
Our holiday worked well due to the suggestions Nick put in. Our guides were always early so there was no hanging out. Hotels and excursions exceeded expectations. We had the holiday of a lifetime.
Everything was perfect so due credit goes to Veloso Tours for all your excellent organisation.
All guides without exception were informative, friendly and punctual. Skorpios was the highlight of the trip with friendly crew and amazing food.
There is a lot of work that goes on behind the scenes to put these packages together so seamlessly, so please pass on our thanks to all those who played their part! We enjoyed being treated as VIP's!
