Overview

Your tour starts with hotel pickup by van in San Pedro de Atacama for the 8-mile (13-km) drive west of town to Moon Valley (Valle de la Luna), a protected nature sanctuary and part of Los Flamencos National Reserve (Reserva Nacional Los Flamencos).

Before you reach the official entrance to Moon Valley, make a stop to check out a canyon and the small dunes of the Cordillera de Sal (Salt Mountain Range). Get your first taste of the area’s otherworldly landscapes, and then continue to Moon Valley, where you’ll pay the entrance fee (not included in tour price).

Browse the onsite exhibition to learn about Moon Valley's physical history and geological features, and then visit a small cave with your guide before climbing up a tall sand dune to watch the sunset (anyone of average physical fitness should have no problem climbing the dune).

As you stand on the dune, you’ll have a vantage point that allows you to truly appreciate the incredible appearance of this strange piece of Earth. Watch the setting sun bathe the valley in shades of red, gold and purple, and then return to your van for the drive back to San Pedro de Atacama.
