People of the Atacama (8 or 10 days) - CHI0112

Visit the people of the Atacama Desert in this 8 day experience of this fascinating desert region.

You will travel to San Pedro de Atacama in the Atacama desert to meet the Lickan Antay ("people of the hamlet") or Atacameño culture and experience their traditions. Travelling across the World's driest desert you will reach the distant Ayllu de Coyo, to begin the Lickan Antay experience within a community that has been practicing agriculture, llama raising and traditional Atacameño food preparations for centuries.
The trip will begin by flying from Santiago to Calama and then boarding a comfortable vehicle that will allow us to reach our remote final destination.

This programme is for travellers who look for more than just the conventional tourist trip and desire to experience Chile’s fascinating traditions. The tour is suitable for all age groups.
