4 DAY - ATACAMA DESERT - TIERRA ATACAMA

Explore one the most beautiful desert in the World!

4 Days

The driest place on the planet may not sound like an ideal place for a luxury holidays, but this is surprisingly one of Chile's hidden jewels and there is plenty to keep you occupied in this alien landscape.
The Atacama Desert region is often described as otherworldly. Lunar-like landscapes of crystallized salt flats, freeze-dried peaks, active geysers and purple-shaded volcanoes contrast with green oases and turquoise lakes for a breathtakingly beautiful destination.  In Atacama travellers, adrenalin junkies and softcore adventurers can find endless options for trekking, mountain climbing, horseback riding, hot springs, astronomy, and cycling.
Tierra Atacama is a boutique hotel on the edge of San Pedro de Atacama. It was created by the Purcell family, long time owners and operators of the Portillo Ski Resort and Hotel, famous in Chile for its excellent skiing, food and warm hospitality.  Tierra Atacama provides guest experiences that combine outdoor adventure and sports with indoor comforts, hospitality and service.
The architecture, interiors, grounds and spa of Tierra Atacama were designed by Chilean professionals with an aim to preserving local cultural influences while also creating a place that speaks to guests, saying… relax, enjoy, share tales of your day’s adventure, sit back, laugh with friends, take a nap, savour your dinner and wine, wonder at the stars, and fill yourself with the awesome beauty of this unusual part of the earth.
