Description

If you wish to see one of the most wonderful places in South America, join me on this 1-day trip to the Valle de la Muerte and Valle de la Luna, Chile. This trip is an ideal starting point if you wish to see the landmarks of San Pedro de Atacama.

The Valle de la Luna is a desert paradise located in the Atacama Desert in Chile. The Atacama Desert is the aridest non-polar desert on earth. It covers a total surface of approximately 105,000 km². And it borders with the Pacific Ocean in the west and the Andes Range in the east.

Valle de la Luna, Chile, is a natural sanctuary famous for its exotic appearance. Ancient floods and strong winds have sculpted this valley creating interesting rock and sand formations. These rare formations, the colors and texture, make it resemble the moon surface. Hence its name, Moon Valley, in English.

The Valle de la Muerte is only 2 kilometers away from San Pedro Atacama. Also known as Death Valley in English, it is a wonderland of sand dunes, perfect for trekking and sandboarding. Not many lives here, except the photogenic sand dunes that you will certainly enjoy touring.

Our trip begins at 4 pm at the tour agency. We will take small treks visiting the highlights of the area. Due to the distance and time, I will take you to some of the places with a vehicle. The tour ends with the sunset in one of the best viewpoints in the continent, near the Great Dune.

So if you wish to experience these natural beauties, the Valle de la Luna y Valle de la Muerte, send me a request. I will make sure you have an amazing time in San Pedro Atacama.

We can also lead you on a hiking tour in the Atacama Desert. Check it out!

About lead guide, Christian Fernandez:

I’m originally from Argentina, but live in Chile since 1998. Now I’m settled in the north of Chile, in San Pedro de Atacama, beautiful town in the heart of the Andean section of the dry Atacama dessert.

From there I organize many expeditions to beautiful peaks on a weekly basis. I’ve done more than 300 high altitude ascents, and more than 25 peaks over 6000 metres.

I speak English, Spanish and Portuguese.

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’

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.

Are you up for a rewarding adventure - go for the Lascar Volcano. Our very experienced guide Christian Fernandez made sure everything was in place for a great experience, from safe driving to making breakfast to setting a good pace for reaching the top without being too affected by the altitude. Stunning views and a great sense of accomplishment, our thanks to Christian and explore-share.com for a truly memorable hike. Best regards, Erik (37) and Christopher (30), Norway
