Landmarks · Shopping Malls · Performances
A hub of northern Chile's copper mining industry, Calama acts as a gateway for exploration of the geological and archaeological sites in the Atacama desert region. One of the driest cities in the world, Calama boasts a gritty charm and features few purpose-built attractions designed to appeal to visitors. In a real desert town, Calama vacations allow visitors to observe how a functioning mining town off that well-beaten tourist path functions on a daily basis. Use our Chile online tour planner to arrange the hows, wheres, and whens of your trip to Calama.
