Half-day tour to Laguna Cejar, Atacama

Discover Laguna Cejar, one of the Atacama Desert’s most magical sites, in a half-day expedition led by a certified mountain guide.


1/2 Day

All year



Laguna Cejar is located in the Salar de Atacama (2,600 m), 20 kilometers away from the town of San Pedro de Atacama (2,440 m), in the Atacama Desert.

The Salar de Atacama is the largest salt flat in Chile covering 3,000 square kilometers west to the Andes Mountains (6,961 m).

Our tour will depart at 4PM from my agency in San Pedro. Prior to this, participants will be picked up at their accommodation in the village. We will drive around 25 minutes in a 4×4 vehicle through the desert to our destination.

Laguna Cejar is well known for its turquoise water, its white shore made of salt crystals of different shapes and sizes, and for hosting pale pink Andean flamingos, which stop to feed. Guests will have time to walk around the lagoon, take pictures, and go swimming (a must!). Its waters stay warm year-round and its high concentration of salt allows swimmers to float comfortably and effortless on the surface.

The tour will end with a visit to Laguna Tebinquinche, just 9 kilometers from San Pedro. We will stop to enjoy a snack and a pisco sour, Chile’s national drink, while we witness the sunset behind the Andes and its reflection on the lagoon.

What people are saying about Chile



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.
