What to expect

The Atacama Salt Flat is the biggest in Chile, with over 3,000 sq meters. It's the perfect place to spot pink flamingos and 'tagua' ducks. The vast landscape of the Salt Flat and the Andes Mountains are the perfect setting for an afternoon swim of 30 minutes, which is undoubtedly the main attraction for the floating effect due to high salt concentration.

Then, we'll continue south to visit the Ojos del Salar, two lakes with less salinity in its water, used by visitors to get rid of the salt from the previous bath. These lagoons are an attraction because of the geological formation.

Finally, we'll travel to the Tebenquiche Lagoon and enjoy the enchanting sunset and the colorful reflections of the mountains in the water.
