San Pedro de Atacama: crossed by the Domeyko mountain range, the picturesque village of San Pedro de Atacama is located 2,500m above sea level. It is the center of the Indian Atacama culture and was built around an oasis in the desert. This mysterious territory, which extends itself between the Pacific Ocean and the Andes, is one of the driest places on earth. Hence its unique ecosystem consisting of lunar landscapes, salt plains and bizarre rock formations.

Hotels & Meals

Argentines have a reputation for being the world's biggest meat consumers! And that reputation is enforced during as good as any meal you’ll see, as meat if not eaten straight, meat is bound to be of the main ingredients.  The Argentine cuisine is a mix of French, Spanish, Italian and Indian influences. There is not really a specific Argentine national dish, and yet, the country is famous for its asados, Argentine barbecues. It is almost a Sunday ritual!

What also pos up regularly are empanadas and dulce de leche. Empanas are savory filled pastries which are very popular throughout Argentina and the whole of Latin America. Dulce de leche is a kind of caramel paste.

Besides the traditional Argentine wines, fernet (Italian liquor but very popular in Argentina) & mate are the people’s darlings. Mate is a green herbal drink you sip withh a special straw, often in group among family, friends or even colleagues. Sooner or later, we bet it will show its true nature during your trip!
