San Pedro de Atacama – Chile

The Chilean town of San Pedro de Atacama, is a popular oasis for people wanting to see some of northern Chile’s most impressive landscapes. Abundant in volcanoes, steaming geysers, salt lakes, thermal spas, intense lagoons and a host of breathtaking rock formations, it is a must-see.

The town itself, centred around a picturesque square and a humble church, is around one hundred kilometres from Calama. While it has become a hub for tour agencies, cafés and tourist accommodation, the dusty streets of San Pedro retain a laid-back place to have as a base for the myriad of tours around the area.

For those heading to Salar de Uyuni, the world’s largest salt flat, this town is a great starting or finishing point for the three/four day tours.
