A place so vast that time and distance seem to have no
meaning. One of the last great “secret” places of the earth,
the Atacama Desert rises from the Pacific Ocean up to the
Altiplano, the foothills of the Andes. It is the driest desert on
Earth, a place of profound night silence with the Milky Way
stars splashed across the crystal clear sky. Your home base
for myriad outdoor adventures in this other-worldly setting is
the Explora Atacama, located near the San Pedro de Atacama
oasis. The hotel’s grounds cover 20 indigenous parcels of
land that Explora is committed to preserving out of profound
respect for the original inhabitants.
During Christmas and New Year’s Explora Atacama has fixed programs of 6 nights duration.
ACCOMMODATION: Explora Atacama offers 50 rooms in two different categories.
PROGRAMS: Our programs begin with a minimum stay of 3 nights, available year round. With 40 different explorations on offer, a longer stay is highly recommended for deep immersion in this experience.
