Itinerary

Day 1
Likan Antai cultural experience - Hike in Mars Valley

Welcome to Atacama – the driest desert in the World.


Morning excursion

On our first day, you will meet your team of local professional guides at Hotel.  Today we will have a great introductory experience to the Likan Antay culture as we visit the different ayllus around San Pedro de Atacama.

The Ayllu is an ancient type of organization and land management, created by the Altiplano people who inhabited these desert sites.

We will meet Wildo and his family who will share with us an introductory conversation regarding the territory and some of their tradition. We will experience different traditions of the Likan antay people.


Afternoon excursion

After a good rest, we’ll head towards the Salt Mountain Range where the Mars Valley is located. This mountain range forms a natural barrier between the Pacific Ocean and the Atacama Salt Flat.  

After ascending a small dune, we will hike north along one of the cornices bordering the Mars Valley. The stunning panoramic view allows us to appreciate how erosion has molded the Salt Mountain Range, revealing the geological processes that shaped it. 

The most fun part of the excursion is a steep but enjoyable descent down a dune, from where we cross the valley on our way back to the van.
