We will pick you up at your accommodations to leave San Pedro de Atacama towards the Punta del Inca. From this place, we will begin the Waterfalls & Cactus Trek, of 2.5 miles in total, and the first thing we will visit will be the Vilama River Ravine. This river is the main water source of the San Pedro de Atacama Oasis. After that, we will walk by the northern and southern slopes of the Cactus Valley. There we will have the opportunity to see the fauna of the place and have more information about this vegetable species, result of 30 to 40 million years of evolution history. During the tour, we will reach 9,842.5 ft. of altitude, so we will be able to experience what do our bodies feel at this point. In addition, we will have time to dip into the lagoon fromed by the waterfalls, so we can relax and refresh from the walk. Then, we will take our vehicle and return to the town, where the tour ends.

*In this tour there’s no place for changing clothes, so we recommend you taking it using your bathing suit from San Pedro de Atacama.

*If you are interested in making this tour and the Astronomical Tour the same day, be organized with your itinerary because the end time of this activity could overlap with the start time of the Astronomical Tour. Consider leaving 45 minutes between the end of one tour and the beginning of the other.

*The pickup service included is nor carried out from/to accommodations located outside the urban area of San Pedro de Atacama, accommodations located at ayllus close to San Pedro de Atacama (Quitor, Yaye, Checar, Sequitor, Solor and Coyo) nor accommodations in the town of Toconao.
