Enjoy a day away from the hustle and bustle of the city
Informative, friendly and professional guide
After hotel pickup, you will head to the salted lagoon of Cejar which is located 12.5 miles (20 km) away from San Pedro de Atacama. The lagoon is located right in the middle of the Atacama Salt Flat at around 8500 feet (2,600 m) above sea level.
Accompanied by your guide, you will visit this lagoon which is filled with great beauty and amazing scenery. Admire its deep turquoise-colored water and the salt formations. Learn from your guide about this extraordinary case of geo-morphological formation and how unique it is in the Atacama Salt Flat. The lagoon is also part of the migration trajectory of the pink flamingos and you can spot them there.
You can bring your bathing suit to experience the closest feeling of flying. This means you will have the chance to float and not sink into the water. Enjoy time here and take in the view of this area's exceptional colors and formations. You can observe the spectacular sunset and then head back to San Pedro de Atacama and your hotel.
