The driest nonpolar territory in the world, the Atacama Desert receives less than 1mm of precipitation annually, with some of its regions not having seen rain in hundreds of years. Wedged between the Pacific and the Andes, this incredible stretch of desert is interspersed by jagged ravines, striking salt pans, thermal pools, vast geysers and volcanic horizons. Amongst its arid landscapes you can find the eerily beautiful Valley of the Moon, the flamingo haven of Chaxa Lagoon and Chile’s largest salt flat. Sitting at an altitude of 3500 metres, the immense Atacama is dramatically desolate bar a few quaint towns, the most famous of which is San Pedro de Atacama.
