The Alto Atacama Hotel is located in Catarpe Oasis, at the foot of Pukará de Quitor, just 3 kilometers from San Pedro de Atacama. It is a quiet and peaceful place with green landscapes surrounded by high mountains that form part of the Salt Mountain Range.

Alto Atacama was inspired by the Andean peoples of the Atacama Desert with its crops, endemic flora and fauna, livestock and handicrafts. All this can be seen in the same hotel with its architecture, gardens and decoration, which leads us to take inspiration from a trip to the ancient cultures that inhabited this place for thousands of years.

Alto Atacama offers a luxury service, all inclusive, so that guests can enjoy an incredible vacation and tour the best places of San Pedro de Atacama. For this, Alto Atacama has a specialized team of guides that will show you the history of the Andean cultures and the most impressive geological formations of the desert. If you are a nature lover, we will take you to different places where you can go hiking, biking and discover one of the most beautiful areas of Chile.

If you want to rest, Alto Atacama offers comfortable common spaces and extensive gardens with endemic flora and fauna. You can walk inside the hotel, witness the silence of the valley, take advantage of the swimming pools and the SPA to relax and enjoy.

Recommendations

For the excursions it is recommended to carry a backpack of 25 lts and several layers of clothing (Capilene, Fleeze, Polar), trousers convertible, windbreaker, sunscreen, sun hat, sunglasses.

San Pedro de Atacama is located in the Chilean highlands and many of its excursions exceed 4,000 meters above sea level (msnm). This can cause discomfort such as nausea and severe headaches. For this we recommend taking lots of water and keeping the body hydrated. The first day rest to acclimatize with the height and thus avoid the puna.
