Atacama Desert

Discover the iconic Atacama Desert

The sheer starkness of the Atacama Desert in the north of Chile is one of awe-inspiring beauty. A landmark of the El Norte Grande, the Atacama Desert boasts an incredible landscape of ragged, rocky mountains and ravines that are interspersed by a striking white salt pan and surrounded by towering volcanoes. It is a photographer’s dream destination.

As the world’s driest desert, the immense Atacama lives up to its title, with some areas registering not even a single raindrop in over 150 years. Sitting at an altitude of 3500m, the dramatic and desolate Atacama Desert boasts clear, unpolluted skies that allow for the most incredible, unforgettable stargazing.
