The Atacama Desert is the driest in the world, and is an area of spectacular and contrasting scenery. At night, you can barely see the sky for the stars. In daylight hours, you can stand in the desert and view the snow-capped Andean Mountain range with its majestic volcanoes such as Licancabur and Ojos del Salado. It is also a region of oases such as the village of San Pedro de Atacama, located at 2,450 metres above sea level, near the north side of the great salt deposit of Atacama. San Pedro is one of the most significant hubs of Andean culture and of archaeological treasures, some of which are on display in the Padre Gustave Le Paige Archaeological Museum. Spend a few days exploring the region by van, hiking, cycling and even on horseback and soak in the serenity of the Atacama.
