The names already give you a clue of how is the landscape, ruled by the rock formations shaped by erosion, the salt cloaks over the ground and viewings that make you fell like if you were in another planet.
We will go across the valley, visiting its famous rock formations: the Tres Marías, the Cañón, the Amphitheater, and the Coyote Stone. Finally, we will enjoy the sunset from a natural mirador, where you can see how the desert changes its colors, with great volcanoes in the horizon, offering a speechless spectacle.

Frequently Asked Questions
How far in advance should I book the tour?
We receive bookings until 48 hours in advance. However, we have limited spaces and always are subject to availability, so our recommendation is to make the booking as far in advance as possible.
What are the differences between the standard tour and the superior tour?
The main difference between the standard tour and superior tour is the size of the group. While the standard tour is made in group of 15 to 20 passengers, the superior tour is made in groups of 4 to 9 people. This fact increases the staying times in the places and reduces the waiting times to go from one place to another, considering that it is used a smaller vehicle. In addition, it improves the personalised service of the guide, giving more attention to the passengers’ requirements. On the other hand, the superior tour has a more varied meal service than the standard tour.
What days of the year can I make this excursion?
This excursion can be made every day of the year, except for January 1 and December 25.
What kind of vehicles are used in this tour?
The vehicle will depend on the size of the group, having a Mercedes-Benz Sprinter (or similar) or a Volare (or similar).
Which is the maximum altitude reached in this excursion?
The maximum altitude reached is similar to the one in San Pedro de Atacama (2400 m), so you do not need a previous acclimation.
