At the base of Chile's Salt Mountains and near the Pucara de Quitor ruins lies Alto Atacama. Ten minutes from San Pedro, the hotel is an ideal jump point for exploring the region's raw nature.

Request a guided tour of the lodge's traditional Altiplano landscaped gardens and receive a fascinating lesson in local desert flora.
Alto Atacama is built in the style of a traditional adobe settlement, complete with llamas and native crops. Its architecture, gardens, and interior design recreate an ancient village - only with all-inclusive service. Rooms are comfortable and minimalist, and without distractions like wifi or TV, you can finally escape everyday stresses.

The hotel's main draw is its guided tours, with options for every fitness level. Whether you go by car, foot, or bike, there are opportunities to explore nearby villages, valleys and gorges.

After a long excursion, you can relax with a glass of wine on your private terrace or in one of the spa's six pools. If you're into astronomy, the sky-friendly night lighting allows for unbelievable views of the southern skies.

Located in the main building, the well-stocked restaurant offers cocktails, wine, a buffet breakfast and creative Chilean concoctions the rest of the day. It's a perfect place to refuel after a day of hiking, biking, or both.

Pleasant stay - beautiful architecture

The hotel is precious and very well integrated with the environment. Perfect to relax. The high: small swimming pools so you can have your own private splash. The low: the way to the city is in bad conditions. You can go (bumping) from the hotel to San Pedro village by taxi or van, but not by walking.

Gogobot Reviews

No reviews are available at this time.


Alto Atacama is located in Chile's Catarpe valley, close to the pre-Columbian Pucara de Quitor, and ten minutes northeast of San Pedro. The road is great for taking a walk into the town, with views of the Andes and local farms along the way. The hotel also provides a transfer service; just ask at the front desk. The closest airport is the Calama Loa Airport - a two-hour flight from Santiago. Alto Atacama can arrange a private airport transfer, which takes about an hour.
