San Pedro de Atacama
We've written about Chile plenty of times here at Gadling, but I don't think we've mentioned San Pedro de Atacama. A good place to learn more about this northern Chilean city is this article, written by GoNomad Editor Max Hartshorne, about his recent trip to the area.
Located north of Santiago and accessible from Calama, San Pedro is a pre-Inca town with a rich cultural history, an ancient village, and some of the most unique landscapes, like the Valle de la Luna. This fascinating oasis in the desert offers stargazing tours, as well as a variety of active travel alternatives like horse riding, hiking and kayaking.
