Chile: Lauca National Park

Close to the border with Peru in northern Chile, rising into the high Andes between the Pacific coast and the Atacama Desert is the stunning Lauca National Park. Wetter than the desert, and at over 4,000m above sea level, this high altitude park springs into life with paintbox green wetlands and coarse tufted prairies. The landscape is dotted with 6,000m snow-tipped volcanic cones, often sitting on the shores of ice-cold lakes of gemstone clarity. The wildlife here is copious, with grazing herds of llamas, alpacas, vicuñas and vizcachas (chinchillas) easily spotted, along with the more elusive deer, foxes and armadillos.

What our experts say

Wedged between the Chilean coast and Bolivia the Lauca National Park isn't hard to reach, but is a world away from the towns and highways at sea level. Famed for its lagoons and flamingoes it is definitely worth the drive on an excursion from Arica or en route to Andean Bolivia or San Pedro de Atacama..
