All of the iconic lagoons in the Atacama Salt Flat have it's own characteristic, which makes them unique and a must in your visit to San Pedro. Cejar Lagoon is famous for its high salt concentration, which allows you to float; while the Ojos del Salar, are a pair of lagoons set very close together that look like eyes in the middle of the dessert. The perfect one to watch extraordinary sunsets, is the Tebenquiche Lagoon where a typical chilean pisco sour and cocktail will be waiting for you.
Your day trip from San Pedro de Atacama begins with pick up from the hotels, or meeting point, located at Ignacio Carrera Pinto #451, San Pedro de Atacama, at the same time specified. (please check the list of hotels available for pick up in additional information).
Our first stop will be at the Cejar Lagoon located within the Salar de Atacama, 20 kilometers from San Pedro de Atacama. It is recognized by the strong calypso color water and it's surrounded by salts of various forms. The big amount of salt in its waters, allow you not to sink, due to the weight that this salt has.
Continuing our trip, will be at the Ojos del Salar, which Atacameños called due to its blue color water and their closeness in the middle of the Salar de Atacama. Unlike the Cejar Lagoon and the Tebinquiche Lagoon, the Ojos del Salar lagoons are much deeper.
The last stop will be at a divine lagoon formed thanks to the thaws and rains that fall during the year in the driest desert in the world. This wonder has a low depth (only a few centimeters), which allows it to resemble a huge mirror. In here you will be able to see reflections of foxes, flamingos and other birds in the area. With this amazing landscapes, we will enjoy a small cocktail contemplating the reflection of the Andes in its waters, along with the whiteness of the salt. The sunset, with ocher colors and strong tones, will offer a true spectacle before our eyes.
At the end of our incredible experience in the Lagoons with beautiful landscapes, we will return to San Pedro de Atacama. The drop off will be at the same point where you were picked up (meeting point or Hotels from the list).
