About
We will start the tour with a visit to the pre-Hispanic village of Socaire, characterized by its cultivated terraces. Then we go to the Altiplano, where we will visit Laguna Miscanti and Laguna Miñiques, habitat of aquatic birds and mammals such as red foxes and vicuñas. We will continue to the Salar de Talar (also known as Salar de Águas Calientes) and the viewpoint of Piedras Rojas, from where we will see these reddish volcanic stones that will surprise you with their shape and the exceptional natural environment where they stay. The tour continues on the Atacama Salt Flat, the largest in Chile and the third largest in the world. There, we will walk along the paths of Laguna Chaxa, nesting and habitat of the three species of flamingos present in Chile: Andean, Chilean and James. Finally, we will visit the village of Toconao, its Church of San Lucas and its characteristic orchards.
