This panoramic journey starts with a fascinating visit to the picturesque village of Tocoanao, where the locals manufacture white volcanic stone sculptures and where the houses are built from the bricks of this white volcanic stone, lending the town a unique appearance.

We then continue on to visit one of the world's largest salt lakes: the Salar de Atacama. This inland sea was formed millions of years ago and it is a unique experience to view the vast plain of octagonal-shaped salt crusts in the middle of the driest desert on earth. It is also home to various species of flamingos, as well as many other birds.

We finish at the Laguna Chaxa, part of the Reserva Nacional de los Flamingoes, which offers a terrific opportunity to get close to these birds in their natural habitat.
