Be transported to Mars in the world's driest desert
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.
