    Oases of Chile: Atacama & Patagonia

    Explore the rare, remote, and wild geologic wonders of northern and southern Chile

    Highlights

    Santiago  •  Maipo Valley Atacama Desert
    Torres del Paine

    Explore the most magnificent wonders of Chile's northern and southern ends.

    Begin in the Atacama Desert, said to be the driest place on earth, with places where it hasn't rained for 400 years. The desert is so dramatic that, at first sight, it appears never to have sustained any life. However, pink flamingoes together with llamas, vicunas, guanacos, and many other species of fauna and flora can be found living in perfect harmony in the many oases and lakes located in the area. With zero humidity and numerous natural mineral sources, the desert houses rock formations of a fantastic kind. The volcanoes that crown the Atacama Desert are among the tallest on earth and their summits were sacred sanctuaries for the ancient Incas.

    Then fly south, to Patagonia, where granite spires and vast glacial ice fields stretch out from the Andes mountains. Deep blue lakes dot the landscape, and long-necked guanacos graze nearby. The trails through Torres del Paine National Park take you to the most iconic sites of this dramatic, picturesque region. While here, stay at the unique, cozy, and personal EcoCamp Patagonia.

    From North to South, you will be delighted by the vivid landscapes and thrilled with your decision to explore this fantastic destination.
