Tierra Atacama / Atacama Desert Tours

Full Moon Hike in the Atacama Desert

When the moon is full, the Atacama Desert is exquisitely illuminated; and in this light, we will experience its natural splendor from a whole new perspective. After dinner, we will leave the hotel and set off away from all light pollution to reach a truly scenic desert spot. This leisurely full moon hike allows us to marvel at the lunar landscape beneath the silvery glow of the moon, contemplating the silhouettes and shadows found at every turn, appreciating its spectacular geography in an altogether alternative way. After about half an hour of walking in this twilight world, we’ll stop to make a campfire and enjoy a snack here, taking in the pure magic of the Atacama under moonlight.

You can also visit Atacama’s famous Moon Valley by day on another of our popular guided tours. After your arrival at Tierra Atacama hotel, please ensure you sit down with our experienced guides who will set up a personalised itinerary to enable you to enjoy the Atacama excursions and tours which are most interesting for you.

Please note: this hike is available from one day before the full moon through till one day after.
Level: Easy
Duration: Half Day
