EXPLORA ATACAMA DESERT

A WHOLE WORLD OF ADVENTURE

Just about as different from a conventional holiday as it is possible to be. At Explora Atacama a whole world of adventure, discovery and unforgettable experiences await

ATACAMA DESERT, CHILE

STAR-GAZING AT THE EXPLORA OBSERVATORY

How about the driest spot on Planet Earth? Make Explora Atacama part of your luxury, tailor-made holiday to Chile and you’ll discover a place so vast that time and direction lose their meaning. A place so ruggedly beautiful it defies your camera; where you’ll ride horses through wilderness, take guided mountain hikes, go star-gazing at the Explora Observatory, visit Puritama hot springs and, of course, stay in a lodge that embraces the traditions of the ancient Aymura people. Complete with 42 acre grounds lined with the time-worn paths and buildings of the area‘s original inhabitants.
