Nature and Wildlife, History and Culture
An oasis in the desert, San Pedro de Atacama is a very special place, where it feels like you have stepped back in time and onto another planet. The narrow dirt streets are filled with mysticism of ancestral cultures and all the comfort required for modern tourism. The altitude and dryness make distant volcanoes seem touchable. San Pedro is a great base from which to explore the astounding natural beauty of the region.
Deep blue waters and white shores that welcome a large variety of birds, the Miscanti and Miñiques lagoons are a gift of nature. Located inside the Los Flamencos National Reserve, at more than 4,000 metres above sea level, they provide a magical contrast with the snow capped hills that surround them.
You can see them in the 3rd gallery image. The snow capped volcanoes are actually 60km away, just showing you how clear the desert sky is, which makes San Pedro a fantastic place for stargazing too.
