Day 1: Garganta del Diablo - Bike Tour

San Pedro de Atacama, Chile

We depart San Pedro on our bikes, following the course of the river of the same name. The landscape is a mixture of the surrounding oasis and the Cordillera de la Sal. After crossing the river, we reach the Quebrada del Diablo, an ancient river with steep clay walls - a unique and beautiful place. We will cycle along a sandy path in a soft but steady rise, until we reach the exit of the labyrinth of the Quebrada. We are then greeted by a stunning view of contrasts - the oasis of a massive expanse of Catarpe crops. We follow the natural path of the river back to San Pedro.

The Atacama Desert is considered to be the driest place on earth and rain is rare at any time of year, although it should be noted that between December and March, Bolivia's wet winter weather can sometimes cause unexpected rainfall in the Atacama.
