The journey begins at early morning from San Pedro de Atacama to the Altiplano, going up through the hills and mountains of the Andes. After 1 hour and a half, we will arrive to El Tatio Geysers, a unique natural spectacle in the world, with 80 steaming geysers at 4,200 meters high. In this natural scenery, we will enjoy a breakfast to recover our energies for going over the geothermal camp, surrounded of many steam columns. Then, we will visit the Pozón Rústico, where we will take a thermal bath for about 40 minutes.

Back to San Pedro de Atacama, we will have a stop in the Putana River, where we will observe the native flora and fauna of the area; then, we will make a stop in Machuca town, where it is possible to buy lama anticuchos (little pieces of meat pierced by a small bar), empanadas and other traditional food from the area.

*The tour time is from 4:30 am to 12:30 pm until August 13, and from 4:00 am to 12:00 pm from August 14.
