Travel to the high plains and salt flats of northern Chile with Chile4u to discover the natural beauty of the Alitplano Lakes and the vast Salar de Atacama.

This excursion in northern Chile starts with a transfer from your hotel in San Pedro de Atacama to the Salar - or salt flats. The first stop is the Soncor sector and Chaxa lagoon where you’ll see three different species of flamingos living in this otherworldly landscape. Next, head up to an altitude of 4,300 metres above sea level to see the high altitude lagoons Miscanti and Miñique. Prepare to be dazzled by the deep blue colour of the water, the yellow hues of the low vegetation of the high plains, and the dramatic volcanoes rising up behind the lakes.

In the second part of this Altiplano Lakes Tour, you’ll visit the town of Socaire, where you’ll enjoy lunch. After a short break, head to the town of Toconao, where you’ll walk around the main square and see the bell tower constructed from wood and cactus adobe in 1750, and the San Lucas church. Both buildings were declared National Monuments in 1951.

The tour ends with a return transfer to your hotel after a day spent exploring some of the most spectacular landscapes in the country. Book this unmissable Altiplano Lakes and Salar de Atacama Tour online now and experience the best of San Pedro de Atacama with Chile4u!
