  • The Jeep took us down to 5200 m and then had to climb 400 metres to the Summit, at this level a real challenge. But we were rewarded with a fantastic all-round visibility.

  • A relatively easy mountain to climb against your 5604 altitude metres. Starts the walk of 4600 meters, where the cars stop. The effects of altitude stand out at every turn faster or unnecessary stress. "Despacito" is how one should go without a hurry to get to the top. The reward in addition to experience with a high altitude, is the stunning visual 360 degrees on the border between Chile and Bolivia.

  • This was our last tour and perhaps the best. It was the first time I climbed a mountain and it was an incredible experience! I found a tiring climb, I can't tell if the lack of physical preparation, lack of oxygen or by cold/wind was hellish, but I actually finished the tour sold out. Were 2:00 to get to the top (+ 1:00 to descend), breathing hard and very slowly, but at the end of the climb, the sense of accomplishment + visual from above outweigh every step. It's really gratifying to get to the top of the volcano and have that view as a reward is something surreal! Must for anyone who wants to have an unforgettable experience!

Where to stay in San Pedro de Atacama

As the stepping-stone to the nearby national reserve, San Pedro de Atacama offers an impressive range of hotels and guesthouses. Despite the big selection, prices remain relatively high throughout the year due to the town's status as northern Chile's tourist hub. At the peak of the summer season (late December to late March), some budget-friendly hostels even require single travelers to share a room with another guest. If you wish to avoid that, look into one of the hotels, many of which cluster around the town's central area and line the main street.
