Itinerary According to the time indicated for our meeting in San Pedro de Atacama, we will head towards the most important area of geothermal activity in Chile. After approximately an hour and a half of walking, we will reach the El Tatio geyser field, located more than 4,000 meters above sea level. El Tatio is one of the most visited places in the Atacama Desert. In this area, we will closely admire the constant steam eruptions from the more than 100 small craters that form the third largest geyser field in the world. We will walk next to the thermal pools and enjoy a delicious breakfast with tea or juice, sandwiches, cookies, yogurt and fruit while we contemplate the geothermal activity at sunrise. You will fall in love! We will leave behind the spectacular landscapes of the El Tatio geyser field to travel to the Machuca lagoon, where we will see a wetland inhabited by a wide variety of highland birds such as flamingos and ducks. At the end of the excursion we will take you back to San Pedro de Atacama. We will arrive at the little square in the center of the town or at a central point in the municipality between 11:30 and 12:00 noon.
