1. San Pedro de Atacama: Hidden Lagoons of Baltinache Tour
Meet your local host in the main street of San Pedro de Atacama to begin your experience. Heading towards the southeast of the desert taking the scenic route to the hidden lagoons of Baltinache. During the 1-hour drive, see all the rock and salt landscapes that make up the desert, and learn about why this area is believed to have been at the bottom of the ocean millions of years ago. Walk to the beginning of the track where you can visit all 7 lagoons. Be stunned by the crystal clear waters of the lagoons and wonder how such a thing is possible in the middle of nowhere. If you wish to take a dip, you are permitted to swim in the first or at the last lagoon only, for conservation purposes. Due to the amount of salt that they have in the water, experience the sensation of floating like a cork. Swim and relax in the water for up to 20-minutes. After swimming, enjoy a shower and remove the salt from your body to return to the city. Then, enjoy the scenic ride back with the opportunity to catch the sun setting over the desert. Finally, arrive back in San Pedro de Atacama where your memorable tour concludes.
