    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!

    Challenge to mind more q for the body, I climbed the Volcano Adventure Duck is I can only thank, he was largely responsible for q I got there at the top and very well, really understands the q does, has several tips q are fundamental transmits security besides being mega nice. I'm afraid of heights, I suffered with the attitude in the previous days and still managed to get and enjoy both the landscape and the peace of the place like the sense of resilience. The ride and the super Duck as a guide.

    Small trekking more than 5000 meters of attitude. The Cerro Toco has 5,604 m. IE, lack the air ride with the Vulcan Expeditions and they were good professionals: small group, accompanied by two guides: loan of material perhaps required when trekking (no additional cost). The landscape is stunning and immense. See if until just beyond the border with Bolivia. At the top, the cold is freezing cold, but bearable. The ride leaves some 8 hours with return before 13 hours. In the afternoon, according to the Guidebook, the winds increase on the mountain.

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.
