San Pedro de Atacama Tours, Vacations, Travel Packages & Experiences


  • San Pedro De Atacama is a great photo opportunity on your Chile vacation

San Pedro de Atacama is a Chilean town and commune in the El Loa Province.  Despite rather modest beginnings, this small town has emerged as a favourite among tourists on a Chile vacation.

The region was once the centre of the Atacama Indians and as such, many relics and artefacts have been discovered.  San Pedro once served as an important stop on the pre-Colombian trade route before it was visited by Spanish conquistador Pedro de Valdivia in 1540.  Early in the 20th century, the town again served as an important stop for cattle drives coming from Argentina.  Recent years have witnessed San Pedro de Atacama become a popular tourist spot due to its location at the heart of some of northern Chile’s most incredible scenery.

While the town has grown in popularity, the actual size has remained small with only a few streets, therefore offering a very relaxed atmosphere.  It serves as an excellent stepping stone to the unique landscapes that surround it including giant sand dunes, canyons, geysers and even a volcano.  It is these landscapes that attract adventure sport enthusiasts who come to enjoy sandboarding opportunities as well as hiking, mountain biking and horseback riding.  Whether embarking on adventure or exploring nearby Los Flamencos National Reserve, visitors on Chile vacations to San Pedro de Atacama are in for a truly unique experience.
