Description

Join me on this incredible adventure to the Valle de La Luna. In the heart of San Pedro de Atacama, Chile, this beautiful place offers fantastic landscapes and exciting hiking routes. Together we'll explore the Chilean Andes' secrets.

Valle de La Luna receives its name (Moon Valley in English) because its beautiful landscape resembles that of the moon. It is filled with petrified salt and sand that the wind and water have formed into its characteristic shapes.

For this hike, we'll leave at 4.30 PM so that we can enjoy the best sunset you'll ever see. We'll visit the Cordillera de la Sal and go towards the Cañón de Kari lookout, where we'll wait for the pink, purple and black sunset. We'll be coming back around 8.30 PM.

I recommend you bring comfortable and warm clothes, hiking boots, water, sunscreen and sunglasses.

If you're ready for an unforgettable landscape, send your request now. I can guarantee you'll want to come back over and over again.

I offer other hikes in Chile, as well. If you are looking for more options, be sure to check out the ones I offer to Quebrada del NacimientoLas Cornisas, Río Salado and others.

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
