Atacama Desert: explora Atacama

Visit Us

explora Atacama

SPECIAL OFFERS > > >

An exceptional first class property, Explora Atacama is situated within a stone’s throw of snow-capped volcanoes, shimmering salt plains, Andean peaks and some of the world’s most advanced astronomical research centres. With all this and more on its doorstep, the hotel has something to offer everyone – from individuals, families and groups to the most adventure-seeking travellers. 

Explora specialises in its own completely unpretentious brand of luxury: you can speed across salt flats on a mountain bike or just relax by a pool watching the most intensely vivid sunset you'll probably ever see. 

Your stay includes numerous excursions per day, tailored to your individual interests and fitness. Activities range from climbing and trekking to cycling and horse riding in the sand dunes, as well as less strenuous pastimes such as archaeological tours and sunset trips to the Moon Valley, with its beautiful sandstone rock formations and striking colours at dawn and dusk. The lodge even has its own observatory for night-time observation of the Atacama's famously starry skies. In between adventures, the grounds are a wonderful place to relax and admire the spectacular lunar surroundings.
