The majestic Andes, with snow-capped peaks and volcanoes, anchor one edge of the horizon, and a red lunar-like desert bleeds in every other direction. Within the seemingly barren terrain of Chile’s Atacama Desert are pockets of great natural drama: red rock canyons, vast sand dunes, crystalline salt flats, ancient lava flows, hidden natural hot springs, the Tatio geysers and tracks of rare cacti as well as wildlife.
