Description

I am really happy to offer you this 8-day program in Atacama. Undoubtedly, it will be the challenge of your life!

Are you ready to join me for the Atacama Challenge? This exciting program consists in 8 unforgettable days, walking in one of the driest deserts of the world.

The main reasons why I think you should come to this expedition are:

  • You will cross the worldwide famous Atacama Desert by foot; 

  • You will learn a lot about native people and their lifestyles;

  • Visit Atacama Salt Flats and the Moon Valley;

  • A great trek in the Andean High Plateau where you’ll see the flora and fauna of the place.

During the trek you will also witness the natural and cultural features which make Atacama a unique region. We’ll hike through the famous Andean plateau and visit some Inca villages as well as many other archeological sites. In addition, this region offers incredible contrasts in its landscapes and a unique wildlife.

The Atacama challenge is a perfect option for those who are looking for a technical improvement. Of course, some prior hiking experience will be necessary as well as a good fitness level. Keep in mind we must walk during 9 or 10 hours per day. However, and in order to make it an easy-going adventure, you won’t have to carry all the equipment on the way. You’ll just carry your basic needs and our private cars will take the rest to the campsite of the day.

This trip is only available for private groups. So, get in touch with me to obtain a custom program with personalized rates according to your wishes and expectations. I await your message!

I was looking for a local guide for a hike I was planning and came across Explore-Share. They seemed to have good reviews and so decided to give them a try. The experience was very positive and completely happy with their service. I will be using them again for next trip.

Thank you explore-share for a wonderful via feratta experience. We have been wanting to learn for a long time but don't have the facilities in Scotland. The guide Mitja was extremely helpful and knowledgeable, answering all my many questions and providing advice. On the day head to take another group but he quickly arranged another guide Borut, who was brilliant. We had a fantastic morning learning via ferrata at Hvadnik in the gorge. It gave us the confidence to later hire our own equipment and go out in Mojstrana. Altogether a five star + experience. Thank you.

Hello! I have been thoroughly impressed by the service and assistance that explore-share have provided the past couple years in helping to plan my trip to the High Tatras in Poland. I really appreciated the flexibility that they provided in allowing me to rearrange my trip twice owing to covid. They were responsive and communicative throughout. This trip was part of my Stag weekend celebrations and explore-share connected me with an outstanding guide in the form of Marcel - he was an excellent recommendation and we really enjoyed our guided hike in the High Tatras with him. Marcel was an outstanding professional, placed a high focus on preparing well and staying safe, and was also a great guy! Highly recommend. Many thanks and best wishes - Richard

Our first time with Explore-Share. An absolutely fantastic experience from start to finish. Extremely good value, very well organised with attention to detail. We travel widely and this has by far been the best of experiences. Well done to all concerned. We are already looking at booking another trip!
