The driest desert in the World, Atacama is located in the north of Chile between pacific ocean and the Andes. The surrounding area consists of barren moonscapes, vast salt flats, strange rock formations, multi-coloured lakes and geysers.
San Pedro de Atacama is the town to begin the ride into this unique place in the world. This little oasis that seems to be stopped in the time has a population of 5000 people.
Atacama is so dry that in some areas the rainfall has never been recorded.
Also known as the Archaeological Capital of Chile, shines for the magnificent landscapes mixed with the heritage that pre Columbian civilizations left in the area.
Intact ruins abound in the Atacama Oasis, also the footprints of these incredible civilizations can be found in San Miguel museum in the Azapa valley in Arica and the Padre Le paige museum in San Pedro de Atacama.
Tatio Geyser Field with its 80 active geysers (third largest field in the world) is another place that worth a visit in Atacama.
