San Pedro Atacama: Baltinache Lagoons and Magic Bus Tour

Highlights

  • Take stunning pictures of the incredible desert and salt lake landscapes
  • Meet the mythical 'Magic Bus'
  • Enjoy a delicious snack in the driest desert in the world

Description

Meet your local host in the main street of San Pedro de Atacama to begin your experience. Heading towards the southeast of the desert taking the scenic route to the hidden lagoons of Baltinache. During the 1-hour drive, see all the rock and salt landscapes that make up the desert, and learn about why this area is believed to have been at the bottom of the ocean millions of years ago. Walk to the beginning of the track where you can visit all 7 lagoons. Be stunned by the crystal clear waters of the lagoons and wonder how such a thing is possible in the middle of nowhere. Since June 10, 2024, the lagoons are no longer suitable for swimming. Now it is only possible to observe and take photos of the lagoons. We also visit the valley of the abandoned bus, also known as the 'Magic Bus'. Iconic for its rustic look and picture perfect surroundings, you can take this time to capture your perfect shot. Finally, arrive back in San Pedro de Atacama where your memorable tour concludes.
