Valle De La Luna, San Pedro de Atacama

With bizarre, spectacular rock formations created by erosion--and not a tree in sight--the twin valleys of Valle De La Luna feel like another world. Their names translate respectively as "Valley of the Moon" and "Valley of Death," fitting labels for such distinctive places. Let your imagination run wild as you traverse the moonscape terrain, but remember that the laws of gravity still apply. You can access the valleys by taking a tour from nearby San Pedro de Atacama. Put Valle De La Luna and other San Pedro de Atacama online trip planner attractions into our {2}, and watch your holiday take shape.

  • Interesting tour with Whipala tours. Drove through valley and stoped for various walks with explanations about the geology and history. Then hiked up to a view point before watching sunset.  more »
  • This was just incredible and an unique experience. Entering the area you discover a new world of landscape, never ever seen before on earth. And you would not imagine it either from the wider area as....  more »
  • Like Valle de la Marte it is a Natural Phenomenon. A stay until sunset is recommended for the colors, and a great atmosphere. At sunset the winds are getting bad, and during the day the sun is...  more »

  • Very cool place. It is like the moon or any planet you can think of really. We did a self guided tour with our rental vehicle and we loved it. We were able to spend as much time at each place as we wanted. Only reason it didn’t get 5 stars is because a few of the stops are closed; one to safety reasons which is absolutely fine but the others had no explanation.
  • Beauty of Mother Nature. Incredible landscapes, particularly nice to do at sunrise. You can either do the tour by bike or by car/bus
  • Filled with lots of magic. Beautiful and spectacular view and lots to explore. Highly recommend to visit this stunning area. I would suggest bring lots of water. And take your time try not to burn yourself out.
  • This place is truly lunar. I’d recommend going there by bike from San Pedro which is much cheaper and more of an adventure than going with a touristic van 🚲 It’s really not that hard and lets you stop wherever you want for how long you want in the valley. I personally did it and had a blast. You can rent bikes in San Pedro without problem, just make sure they’re in a good state before leaving town 🙋🏻‍♂️
  • This is one of the most common tours offered when you're in San Pedro de Atacama which are all priced similarly. This is also one of the best tours that offered. Amazing landscapes from interesting rock formations to desert dunes to salt flats. Certainly a must!
