If the aforementioned circumstances beyond the control of the organizing agency result in the cancellation of the trip, the client may choose to participate in another organized trip of equivalent price. If the proposed replacement organized trip is of a lower price, the client will be refunded the price difference accordingly.


The client or their companions are free to cancel the trip at any time.

i) Such cancellation implies that the client is responsible for the payment of all charges arising from the beginning of the fulfillment of the contract and their withdrawal, as well as a percentage that can go up to 15% of the price of the trip.

Tour leader

Some people travel the world in a year, I decided to travel calmly. In each country I’ve visited I tried my best to absorb the culture, history, ways of life, taste the food and drinks, make friends and help whenever I could. And it’s exactly this that attracts me to traveling, leaving my comfort zone, the novelty, learning, freedom, landscapes, scents, people, and in the end the backpack’s weight is compensated by the lightness of the soul.

After arriving in Calama, we still have a trip of about an hour and a half to the mythical town of San Pedro de Atacama. This will be our base for exploring the region for the next 3 days.

After the check-in it is time to relax and celebrate the beginning of a great adventure.

Finally, and before returning to San Pedro, we will visit Laguna Tebinquinche.

Our first stop will be in Toconao, a picturesque Andean village built in volcanic rocks, located next to Quebrada Jerez. From Toconao, we enter Salar de Atacama, one of the largest salt flats in the world, with an extension nearing 3000 km2. In this small and fragile ecosystem we may, with luck, see flamingos and caitis among other water birds.

We will continue our journey to the fantastic high altitude lagoons - Miscanti and Miñiques. These lagoons, situated at more than 4,000 meters above sea level, have impressive colors, and the scenery they provide is one of the most beautiful in the region.

Before we begin our return to San Pedro de Atacama, we will have time to venture into the Piedras Rojas.

We will arrive to San Pedro at the end of the day, and for those who still have energy, and if it is the right phase of the moon, you can opt for an astronomical tour to watch the stars.

Hito Cajones is around 45 minutes from San Pedro and at an altitude of 4600m. First we stamp our exit from Chile, then we continue for a few minutes by road to the official entry point in Bolivia.

After formally entering Bolivia, Mother Nature will start to wow us with spectacular views of the Lincancabur volcano (5916 meters) that frames Laguna Blanca and Laguna Verde. From the Lagunas we'll continue to the surreal Valle de Damas, also called the Dali Desert, an immense area of sand and rocks that form an indescribable landscape and it is said to be the background of Dali's paintings. The next stop will be the thermal baths of Polques.

Weather permitting, we can enjoy the hot springs pool overlooking the altiplano. Then it is time for a meal and to continue the trip to Villamar (3980m), where we will spend the night.

We continue to the Necropolis of San Juan, a bizarre funerary "monument" carved in primitive corals, where we'll learn about ancient funerary rituals.

The rest of the afternoon will be spent crossing the colossal salt extension, making stops to photograph this enormous and magnificent white desert. Already in the margins of the Salar we wait for the sunset, where, surely, emotions and joy will infect the whole group (overnight at 3600 m).

The route continues to the Sol de Mañana geyser, an area of intense volcanic activity, where fumaroles and bubbling muds are an attraction. After the geyser we will begin the return to the border of Hito Cajones, however, before we still encounter familiar landscapes, such as the Valle de las Damas (or the Salvador Dali Desert), Laguna Verde, and the majestic Lincancabur volcano.

You can opt for some of the various museums, such as the Pre-Columbian Art Museum, the La Moneda Cultural Center, or the Museum of Memory and Human Rights.

Who will guide this trip?

This trip is accompanied by Tour Leader Carla Henriques.

What kind of accommodation do I stay in during this trip?

We stay in double rooms, with private bathrooms, in comfortable hotels that are well located for easy travel. There is always internet connection, even though sometimes the speed may not be the best. We favor small to medium sized hotels, run by locals, where we always feel well received and welcome.

What kind of transportation do we use on this trip?

On the visit to the Atacama Desert and the Salar de Uyuni, we will use jeeps with a local driver. On Easter Island we do not have scheduled transportation and it is advised to rent vehicles among travelers to explore the island. We will still have 3 internal flights, the first one to go from Calama to Santiago de Chile, and the next 2 are round trip to Easter Island.

Are arrival and departure transfers included?

Yes, arrival and departure transfers are included if you travel on the "group flight". On this trip there is a group flight, that is, there is a specific arrival (and departure) time and the transfers will be according to the arrival (and departure) time of that flight. If you choose to buy different flights, you will have to be at the arrival airport at the same time as the group's flight, to take advantage of the transfers. You must also have the same departure time to take advantage of the transfers.

Does Papa-Léguas handle the flights?

Papa-Léguas sends you a flight proposal. Note: the arrival/departure dates may vary, depending on your origin city. If you have any doubts, contact Papa-Léguas for further clarification. After you receive the flight simulation, you can choose to buy from Papa-Léguas or another agency, or online.

Where do I meet the group?

If I sign up alone, do I have to pay an individual supplement?

Not necessarily. If you do not wish to stay alone in the accommodations, you can share them with another person who is signed up. Papa-Léguas may group travelers who sign up individually for the same trip in pairs, by sex and chronological order of registration, and if the number of participants is odd, the traveler who stays alone must pay the respective individual supplement.

Can I drink tap water in the countries to visit?

Special care should be taken with local water, and only bottled water should be consumed. However, to avoid excessive consumption of plastic, we advise you to take a reusable bottle with you and fill it up with bottles that you can buy or are sometimes available to refill at hotels.

How much money should I bring for my personal expenses?

On average, for meals, $25 per day is sufficient. Most places accept USD as a form of payment, but it is advisable to always have some money in the local Chilean currency. Regarding Bolivia, you should not need to exchange currency for 4 days where meals and accommodation are included and hotels accept cards. The money that each traveler should bring depends a lot on the type of consumption that he or she usually does while traveling, such as buying souvenirs and activities on his or her own.

Is insurance included in the land program? What does it cover?

No, it is not. The exception is for travelers not departing from national soil, whether or not they hold Portuguese nationality. Contact Papa-Léguas for further clarification.

What equipment is essential for this trip?

This trip is a paradise for photography! The skies are incredibly polarized, however, a polarizing filter can come in handy, as well as gradient filters. A dust cloth is essential and batteries. Lots of batteries. A shutter release cable for long exposures with its corresponding tripod is essential. In addition to photographic gear, there is something small and essential on this trip: sunglasses. When we are on the Salar, the effect is similar to snow and the lack of protection can cause a lot of discomfort. With the glasses, a hat and sunscreen are also advised. If you plan on taking the baths in Atacama, it is advisable to take a bathing suit/shorts because the salt is quite corrosive. At altitude and at night it will be cold, take a wind or waterproof jacket. There may be power cuts in some more remote locations, so a flashlight can also be quite useful.

What documentation is required to make this trip?

The necessary documentation may vary, depending on your nationality, the country of origin and the places you will travel to. For further information, consult the relevant embassy websites or contact Papa-Léguas. However, when we cross the border from Chile into Bolivia a payment may be required. On the last trip, I was charged 5 USD/pax.

What are the health restrictions for entering the country?

Health restrictions may vary, depending on various factors, such as your country of origin. We recommend scheduling a Travel Medicine consultation before your trip. For further information, consult the websites of relevant agencies or contact Papa-Léguas.

Might I experience some symptoms of altitude sickness at some point on this trip?

Altitude sickness is a real and very likely possibility. What happens is that at higher altitudes, the air pressure (barometric pressure) decreases and there is less oxygen in the surrounding air. It is possible to be comfortably at moderately high altitudes, but the body has to make some "adjustments" and this may take some time. The symptoms manifested in the lighter form of altitude sickness are similar to a mild hangover - headaches, fatigue, nausea, lack of appetite, and dyspnea (shortness of breath). As the body makes normal adjustments to adapt to high altitude, a person may experience some symptoms that are bothersome but not a cause for concern. These include rapid breathing, shortness of breath with exhausting exercise, occasional short pauses in breathing during sleep, and frequent urination. These last two symptoms are caused by a low carbon dioxide level, which triggers adjustments in the brain and kidneys. Some precautions to take are: - Limiting physical effort to reasonable levels - Drinking plenty of fluids during high altitude exposure - Limit alcohol consumption, because an alcoholic drink consumed in a very high place seems to have twice the effect - Eat frequent and light meals, instead of bulky meals - Taking aspirin or similar medicine to relieve headaches
