Sporting one of the driest of deserts in the world, San Pedro de Atacama is home to one of the most exceptional landscapes in the continent. Atacama is a land of numerous rugged volcanoes, endless salt pans and some of the most active geyser fields in the world. The key highlight of the Atacama is Valle de la Luna, translated as “Valley of the Moon”, which showcases a most bizarre and beautiful landscape that uncannily resembles the surface of the moon. Valle de la Luna was formed as a result of millions of years of sand and stone erosion. It is nothing short of a photographer's dream at sundown when the mountain ridges swirl with a kaleidoscope of colors as day changes to night. At night, San Pedro de Atacama turns into one of the darkest places in the world, which makes its night sky one of the most spectacular on the planet.
