Atacama Desert and Northern Chile holidays will introduce you to some of the world’s most spectacular scenery. Visit the lunar landscapes of the vast Atacama Desert and discover its natural beauty, including the spouting geysers, bubbling thermal springs, dazzling salt flats, and awe-inspiring dune valleys. Then head to the heart of the Andes to look out over the lakes of the Altiplano high-altitude plateau, and watch the El Tatio geysers put on their performance at sunrise. The region's Atacameño culture and history is also fascinating. For a seaside getaway, make your way to La Serena on the coast
for a few days where you can spend your time relaxing on the beach, strolling around the small town learning about its history, and sampling the local flavours with freshly-caught seafood alongside a glass of refreshing pisco sour. The Atacama Desert and Northern Chile are also a perfect place for stargazers, with multiple observatories dotted around making the most of the dark night skies, including the famous and brilliantly named VLT (that's Very Large Telescope).

They did wonderfully in putting together a new side trip in Chile in a matter of hours and, in particular, finding us a sublime hotel when our original one melted away in an Atacama "rain event".
