Exploration Path

We take a van up to the Catarpe Valley, where we begin ascending the Salt Mountain Range. On the way, we’ll see petroglyphs and from the top, we can admire the green valley landscapes contrasting with the colors of Salt and Andes Mountain Ranges. This is an ideal introduction to the Atacama region. We return by van.

*Temporarily unavailable. Consult other exploration options with your Explora guide at the destination.

Geometric and seemingly infinite, the Atacama salt flat abruptly interrupts the desert’s chromatic continuum.
