Moon Valley Tour from San Pedro de Atacama
From US$22.00
Overview
Enjoy seamless transportation to the Valley de la Luna (Valley of the Moon) on this guided tour from San Pedro de Atacama. Discover the otherworldly, rugged landscape of caverns and sand dunes while your guide gives insight into the geology and ecology of one of the driest places on earth. Top off the experience with an easy hike to the top of a sand dune to watch the setting sun light up the valley.
What to Expect
Your tour begins with a pick-up from your San Pedro de Atacama hotel. Meet your guide and settle into the air-conditioned minivan for the journey into the heart of the Atacama desert. Make a short stop along the way to see the Cordillera de Sal (Salt Mountain Range), a rugged landscape of canyons and dunes. 

Upon arrival at the Valle de la Luna (Valley of the Moon), pay the entrance fee (own expense) and get insight into the area's geology and ecology through the museum's exhibits. Then, with your guide, venture into a small cave to explore its formations, then hike up a sand dune to view the spectacle of the setting sun lighting up the desert with an orange glow.

After enjoying the sunset, return to the van for the return journey. Your tour concludes with a drop-off back at your hotel.

Despite rain in the afternoons the week I visited, got to the Moon Valley

The Bolivian Winter phenomenon creates a microclimate in San Pedro vallley, and so the tours were moved to the fierce heat of the late morning. Being an Englishwoman this was no deterrent, so I trekked up the ridge for the amazing views. The nearby Vallley...More
