Explora in Atacama Hotel

At Explora's San Pedro de Atacama lodge in Chile, you enjoy luxurious, tasteful accommodations and excellent service, a great base to make daily explorations of this fascinating area. 

At the lodge, you enjoy its peaceful beautiful location amid countryside on the outskirts of the oasis of San Pedro de Atacama, on the Atacama Salta Flat.

During the day, your guides introduce you to unique, extravagant, inexplicable sights in the Altiplano, amid the ravines and dunes of the Salt Range and Moon Valley, in millenial stone villages of shepherds.

At night, the hospitality and comfort is fully up to the standard for which Explora has become well known.

Explora staff meet you on arrival in Calama airport; you depart by hotel van eastward, and within an hour you have traversed the Salt Range and descend into the oasis of San Pedro de Atacama, at 8,200 feet above sea level.  Your guides welcome you, and begin the visit with an orientation toward the afternoon's excursions.

Each day, in consultation with the guides, you engage in either half-day or full-day explorations. Some of these are rigorous challenges -- you can climb a volcano to over 18,000 feet. Horse lovers will appreciate the opportunities to encounter the desert. Those not comfortable trotting and/or galloping may take lessons. There are hikes, there are van-supported visits to indigenous villages. The variety of experiences is exceptional, and Explora guides have imaginatively made the most of their surroundings.
