DOWNLOAD ITINERARY

Day 1Atacama to the Green & Red Lagoons to Ojo de Perdiz

Mountain over Potosi town

Depart from San Pedro de Atacama towards Hito Cajon (border between Chile and Bolivia). Enter to the National Reserve of Andean Fauna Eduardo Avaroa and visit the Green Lagoon, an impressive aquatic mirror that resembles a giant emerald with a particular brightness in the mornings and afternoons; its color is due to the high magnesium content in the water. In the proximities of this lagoon is the Licancahur Volcano (5,868 m.). The next stop will be the Red Lagoon, which is very impressive because of its red color, due to the fine sediment accumulation of the same color in the surface, as well as the pigmentation of certain type of seaweed. It is populated by 3 species of flamencos (among them the famous James). Box lunch. Continue the journey crossing the Siloli desert. Arrive to Ojo de Perdiz and accommodation at Hotel Tayka del Desierto Dinner and overnight stay.
