Your tour begins with an early morning pickup from your San Pedro de Atacama hotel. Settle into the air-conditioned van for the journey north, arriving at El Tatio by sunrise (entrance fee at own expense).
Enjoy the spectacle of the rising sun over the geyser field, one of the biggest in the world. Take advantage of your free time to explore the field, marveling at the columns of steam emitted by each geyser. Enjoy a light breakfast and dip in an inviting hot spring before getting back into the minivan.
The next stop is the village of Machuca, home to around 10 people, a wooden church, and rustic, thatch-roofed homes. You can browse for handmade crafts or sample the local specialty, llama empañadas, at your own expense.
Settle into the van for the journey back to San Pedro de Atacama where your tour concludes with drop-off back at your hotel.
