Watch the sun rise in one of the most beautiful geothermic fields in the world
On this exciting tour, we will visit the impressive Tatio Geysers, at 4000 meters above sea level on the Andean plateau.
Our journey to the Altiplano starts in the early hours, so we can watch the sun rise in one of the most important geothermic fields in the world: the Tatio Geysers. There are over 70 geysers with pools of boiling water spurting vapor. It is best to see them first thing in the morning, so you can truly appreciate the beautiful contrast of colors between the intensely blue sky and the pristine vapor from the geysers.
We will then enjoy a deserved breakfast in this amazing setting, in the shadows of the Andes. This will allow us to warm up, as the temperatures in the zone can range from -2° C to 24.5° C. We will then visit the Pozón Rústico, where you can enjoy the thermal spring waters from the mountains.
On our way back to San Pedro de Atacama, we will travel through some beautiful landscapes, seeing the valleys, flora and fauna and maybe spot some of the local vicuñas and vizcachas – a real highlight. We will then head towards Puritama Hot Springs
30 kilometers from San Pedro de Atacama and 3,500 meters above sea level, is the Puritama River, where natural spring water from the mountains flows from underground water ways, heated up by the volcanic rocks to reach temperatures of over 33°C.
Through the typical Pampa grass of the region, we discover this natural wonder. Eight different pools of varying temperatures and highly medicinal properties. All you need to do is relax and enjoy the refreshingly relaxing experience.
