Salar de Atacama, Antofagasta
(4.6/5 based on 260+ reviews on the web)
Savor the sight of a flock of pink flamingos wading through the shallow reflecting pools at Salar de Atacama. Chile's largest salt flats offer striking scenery from all angles, with a ring of imposing volcanos surrounding the salt-rich plateau, where shallow pools form after rainfall. Take a guided tour from San Pedro de Atacama, which will also likely include a visit to the Valley of the Moon. Leave plenty of room on your camera's memory card to capture the unforgettable landscape.

  • The mines of the atacama Salt Lake are a great source of income for the inhabitants of the sector, highly organized companies where the cordiality and safety above all. Not anyone can have access to these mines, they must have some link with the projects developed there.
