Day 1: Arrive Atacama

This morning you fly to Calama airport, where you are met by people from our lodge and taken to your oasis in the desert - the Awasi lodge. The lodge is situated inside an ancient site that use to house herders. With it's convenient location near town, it is also easy to explore the local church, museums and shops.

Day 2-3: Atacama Excursions

  • Hotel
  • 2 Breakfasts, 2 Lunches, 2 Dinners
These days are for you to arrange activities locally. With a dedicated guide and driver per room and everything included, there is a team of people at the lodge ready to help you plan your stay. Choose from a variety of full or half day activities. You can arrange horseback riding, visit archaeological sites or salt flats. For the more adventurous traveler, there is trekking along the desert or mountain biking rocky ridges. Take in the geysers, go bird watching or relax in the nearby thermal pools. During the evenings, enjoy 5 star dining with famed Chilean chef, Juan Pablo Mardones.

End these evenings with a visit to Awasi Atacama's private astronomical observatory! This facility is located only 5.5 miles (a 15 minute drive) from your hotel and provides the perfect setting for star gazing. Experts in astronomy say that Chile is one of the three best places in the world for observing the galaxy, and we want guests to be able to take full advantage of the unique location under some of the world's clearest skies. Your expert astronomy guide will give a general overview of the universe (size, distance, evolution of stars), as well as point out stars and constellations using a powerful laser torch as you observe with the naked eye. To conclude the night, guests have an opportunity to use an automatic 11-inch telescope to see things not visible otherwise.

*Please note that star gazing is not offered the 6 days before or 2 days after each full moon due to the amount of lunar light in the sky severely limiting the experience. Also subject to weather conditions.

Day 4: Return Home

  • 1 Breakfast
Depart from the lodge and return to Calama airport to fly on to your next adventure or return to Santiago to fly home. With extra time in Atacama, you can visit a stone craftsmen village, volcanoes, lagoons, and other wonderful and otherworldly landscapes.

The trip was terrific with great planning on your part. Most of the adventures were not mainstream and somewhat off the beaten path which made it especially enjoyable!! We felt taken care of and you all were readily available to respond to questions and issues. I would highly recommend your company and friends have already expressed interest based on our pictures and excitement.
