Hiking in San Pedro de Atacama

At the doorstep of the surreal Atacama Desert

Lying in the north of Chile, the town of San Pedro de Atacama is the gateway to one of the driest deserts in the world: Atacama Desert. This amazing destination of the Andean high plateau brims with landscapes of surreal beauty: salt flats, volcanoes, colourful lakes and steaming geysers. Atacama is also an archaeological gem and the best stargazing location in the world. Guided hiking trips are a great opportunity to explore Atacama’s unique cultural and natural features. You can pick your own adventure, from 1-day trips to several-day expeditions.  Explore-Share only promotes trips led by certified mountain guides.

Ascent to Cerro Toco – San Pedro de Atacama

This is an easy assent! I ended up paying $200 for a two hour experience and an apple and piece of chocolate ( lunch 😳) If you plan on doing this hike which I highly recommend, don’t book it with these guys - total rip off!! You can go with a group for about $70 if you book locally from San Pedro! It’s a beautiful view from the summit! It’s not even hard to get there ( they drive you most of the way!) My guide was lovely, great chat, nice person but trust me $200 is a massive massive massive rip off for this ‘experience’

Ascent to Cerro Toco – San Pedro de Atacama

The trip was a great experience with a wonderful view! However, unfortunately the tour description does not fit with the actual tour. There was no breakfast with acclimatisation and the duration was shorter. Most important the tour was not guided by Christian, but by some of his employes which did not speak English so we didn't get much explanations except some fragments that we understood in Spanish. Therefore we were a litlle disappointed concerning the guide of this tour.

10-day Atacama trek and climb to Licancabur

I was really disappointed with Casa de Guias. It was not a terrible experience because Casa de Guias had found a wonderful guide and assistant although they did not know them (allmountain guide). As to Explore -Share I don´t intent to buy anything. I will write a full description of what happened by e-mail.
