What you'll do

Take in stunning views of the Atacama Desert, accompanied by a herd of llamas. We’ll meet our friendly llamas at the entrance of a beautiful oasis. Here we will learn more about these majestic creatures and how they have always been ancestral companions to people of the desert. Then these loving animals will show us the way. We’ll follow the herd at an easy pace in the surrounding desert landscapes where we’ll find beautiful spots to sit and chat—or simply gaze into the silence of the landscape, the gaping sky, and the llamas enjoying themselves. We’ll walk for about 1 hour, circling the oasis - full of native trees and medicinal plants whilst taking in spectacular views of surrounding volcanos and salt mountains with the llamas as the sun sets. We will send each guest professional photos of the experience along with stunning portraits of you together with a llama !

Where you'll be

We will be walking in the surrounding area of Coyo - a small oasis in the desert filled with native trees and agricultural crops. It is 7km from the main town of San Pedro and the rural area allows for spectacular views of the Cordillera del Sal (Salt Mountain Chain), Moon Valley, the Andes Mountains and surrounding volcanoes. We will give directions once the booking has been made, it's possible to arrive by taxi or bike if you do not have a car.
