There is no doubt the Altiplano Highlands and the Atacama Desert in Northern Chile rank among the most adventurous trekking destinations on the South American continent. Impressive volcanoes – most of them 6,000m high, glistening Salares, and the driest desert on this planet define the Altiplano highlands and make them unique.

Join us on this unforgettable trekking trip and experience the contrasts between the barren, dry Atacama Desert and the fruitful, green Azapa and Lluta Valleys. Immerse yourself in the world of the Aymara Indians and follow the historical Ruta de La Plata. From a technical point of view, climbing the 5,000m summits is a challenge but should not be too difficult.

Nestled between the fascinating wonders of the Atacama Desert – colorful lagoons, glistening Salares and steaming geysers, to name just a few – this tour is much more than a just a trek!

“Dear Vera,
Thank you so much for the wonderful pictures. They just brought back all the wonderful memories of our hiking trip to Patagonia. You and Christian had done an absolutely wonderful job organizing the trip for us. And your carefulness and thoughtfulness for all the little details for everyone in the group was just amazing. You made our trip so smoothly and so enjoyable. I have recommend Moser Active Adventures highly to many of my friends who expressed interests in going to Patagonia.
We would definitely get in touch with you if we are planning another trip to northern Chile. Best wishes to you and Christian!”

“Dear Christian,

I'll like to thank you for the Patagonia hikes. It is most scenic area of all the hikes that I have done before. Izabela and Vera are the best guides we had. They are the best team together. I enjoyed the trip very much. I plan to go back there with my family and other friends in the future.”
