Activities - San Pedro de Atacama

At a distance of 30 km from San Pedro, at an elevation of 3,475 meters, and located in a mountain canyon you can find the Puritama Hot Springs. In beautiful natural surroundings, these springs have great vegetation and a pool with adiameter of approximately 8 meters.

Riding a bicycle is a good way to observe the beauty of the Atacama Desert, the driest desert in the world. The circuit of the valleys, a half day tour, takes you to the Cordillera de la Sal, the Cordillera Domeyko, the Llano de la Paciencia,and the Valley of the Moon.

The Atacama Desert is a privileged area for the observation of the sky and its stars, as it has one of the cleanest skies in the world with over 330 clear nights per year. There are tours every night starting at 8 pm, which last approximately 3 hours, accompanied by guides
specialized in astronomy.

Near San Pedro some of Chile's highest mountain peaks are located, all with awesome scenery. Some of these summits are: the 5,950 meter Licancabur volcano, which has a beautiful lake and traces of the Incan culture and which can only be climbed from the Bolivian side. The Lascar Volcano, with a height of 5,554 meters, and which is still active. The Llullaillaco Volcano and Mt. Sairecabur with heights of 6,760 and 6,050 meters, respectively, both at the border between Chile and Argentina.

San Pedro and its surroundings are ideal for horseback riding. There are horse rides that range from one hour to complex crossings of six days. Among the most interesting rides are the ones to the Valle de la Muerte (Death Valley), in which you visit in two hours time the Ayllú de Conde Duque to the San Pedro River and you cross the desert through the Valle de la Muerte, located in the middle of the Cordillera de la Sal.

There are several circuits at elevations between 2,500 and 4,500 meters above sea level, in which you will be able to appreciate the immensity of the desert, and deepen your contact with nature and local cultures. The trek to the Valley of the Moon takes approximately four hours, with a
visit to the "Las Tres Marías" and then continuing towards a large dune on a trail that crosses the Cordillera de la Sal.
