That something calls you to enter and immerse your body, and the surprise is not small: the quantity of salt in the water makes you float, relax, and you let yourself go. In this tour you can see how the desert hides secrets that are revealed only to the ones who dare to enter in its vastness. These secrets are the motivation to look for a closer and more direct relation with nature.

El Tatio Geysers Tour - Half Day Tour - Typical Tour

star-4

Waking up early in the morning for an almost two hours travel is only justified if you experience the dawn surrounded by El Tatio Geysers, exhaling the steam that contrasts with the cold invading your body, but which feels nice because you are sharing a unique effect with nature and the sunrise at 4500 meters high. After a few minutes walking in this phenomenon, you admire it while you warm up your hands and body with a breakfast in the heights of San Pedro de Atacama hills, to then relax in the warm natural river pools that are located a little further downhill. When going down through the same paths that a few hours ago were completely dark, you can appreciate the fantastic view from the edge of the trails. Later on you can make a stop in the Putana wetland to rest, but also to admire the place’s fauna: flamencos and different type of birds in an exceptional lagoon surrounded by the path that leads to the town of Machuca.
