In the north of Chile, the Atacama desert is the driest place on earth.
If you think that this might not make it suitable as a holiday destination you would be wrong. You can stay in iconic properties that shield you from the extremes of climate and enjoy what Atacama has to offer. Amazing scenery, sculpted by the climate – stunning canyons and dry rock formations, salt flats as far as the eye can see – will entrance you. The indigenous people, their history and artefacts are equally surprising. And the clear skies make this one of the best places on earth for stargazing.
Spend at least a few days here to fully appreciate this unique region.
