Urszula D (Poland): “An amazing experience in the heart of the Atacama desert”
“Before visiting San Pedro de Atacama, we have never done a guided tour before, since we value independence and freedom. We were very positively surprised about how relaxed and friendly time we have spent together with Roberto during our two days in the area of San Pedro. It felt more like spending time with a good friend and it was definitely worth it.
Together with Roberto we went to see (and swim in) Tatio Geysers. While this is one of the most popular day trips from San Pedro de Atacama, we had the geysers almost exclusively for us – Roberto knows best when to go, not to end up in the crowd. We had the warm pools only for ourselves – it was amazing! Then he guided us on a small hiking tour, which was our acclimatisation test before the next day’s trip to the Lascar Volcano (5600m). Roberto was well prepared – we even had medical air with us, just in case – and he is very experienced with altitude. The climb was a success and a great fun, including an offroad drive to the foot of the volcano. Both days were excellently planned but at the same time very relaxed. Roberto was very flexible with our plans and he responded to all our questions very quickly and extensively.
Altogether, we had a great time, excellent experience, beautiful views and a lot of local stories. What Roberto offers is very different from all the other agencies – it will feel more like travelling with a friend, who knows the area inside-out. Definitely recommended!!”
Camila L (Brazil): “Volcano trekking”
“Roberto was an amazing guide to climb the Lascar volcano with. He was attentive with our limitations and helped us get to the end even though none of us had any experience with such a challenging trekking.”
Hélène M (France): “Super agence et organisation au top !”
“Manager super pro, très à l’écoute des demandes et réellement très sympathique. Organisation impeccable sans faute. Guides très professionnels et très sympathiques. Nourriture en suffisance. Vraiment le top pour découvrir le Chili différemment. Bravo et mille mercis à Roberto !”
JC-HK-Asia (UK): “Excellent tailor-made hiking trip”
“I visited Atacama with friends in October to take part in the Racing The Planet ultramarathon across the desert. Robert created a special tailor made 3-day trip for me and my friends in order to acclimatize us to the altitude in advance. At the same time, he made sure we saw some exceptional scenery, stunning volcanoes, geysers, mountains, salt plains, flamingoes and llamas! Roberto clearly knew the area well and was very safety-conscious. We had a great time with him and I thoroughly recommend him for anyone wanting their own guided tour.”
MartB777 (UK): “Excellent, bespoke tours”
“We took a couple of tours and both were extremely friendly, informative, well planned and relaxed. The first was to the Altiplanic Lagoons and Salt flats which were exceptional and tailored around our requirements. The second tour was to the El Tatio geysers followed by a tailor-made trek at altitude which provided us with exactly what we asked for. Excellent experiences and would not hesitate to recommended.”
rory s (New Zealand): “Good tour guide”
“Used this company for a weekend in Feb 2017. Our guide was excellent. They provided us with a custom made weekend at a reasonable price. Would use again.”
Kleber V (Brasil): “O Deserto do ATACAMA foi um dos lugares mais espetaculares que já conheci!”
“O Deserto do ATACAMA foi um dos lugares mais espetaculares que já conheci. Nosso guia Jimmy foi excepcional!!!! Uma pessoa incrível, gente finíssima… Adoramos tudo.
Em dois dias pelo deserto tivemos a oportunidade de conhecer as Termas de Puritama, Lagunas Escondidas, Valle de la Luna e Lagunas Altiplânicas.
Agradecemos imensamente a Norte Grande Outdoor pela inesquecível experiência que nos proporcionou.”
