Alto Atacama, was built to blend into its surroundings, and it appears to be part of the terracotta-coloured hills that rise behind it.

The lodge is located at 2500 metres above sea level and around 3 km from San Pedro, thus far enough to enjoy no light pollution if you want to have the best views of the famous Atacama starry skies. It is tucked away in a valley of serene beauty and 360 degrees views of the surrounding landscapes. It was built with the outmost respect of the environment and it is the only lodge in San Pedro with an “S” certification for sustainable tourism from the Chilean government.

It is the lodge that best represents the local Atacamenian culture through its own desert microcosm as it surrounds a llama corral and corn vegetable garden.

There are 42 spacious guest rooms, all of which have a private terrace. The lodge offers all inclusive programs with full board and over 30 cultural and adventure excursions, from bike rides to volcano treks, photo safaris to picnics at high-altitude salt lakes, and visits to geyser fields, amongst others. The lodge also boasts a private open deck observatory for stargazing. When you want to relax, the Spa features six outdoor pools, indoor and outdoor Jacuzzi, Scottish showers, sauna, steam bath and mineral baths.
