Alto Atacama Desert Lodge & Spa is the only lodge in the San Pedro region that is totally enveloped by natural surroundings. Located in the lush Catarpe Valley of the Salt Mountain Range, just three kilometres from the plaza of San Pedro, the lodge’s design was influenced by local village architecture and conceived to blend seamlessly into its environment and appear as a part of the terracotta-coloured ridge that rises behind it. With sweeping views, the tranquility and silence and the hotel’s wonderful outdoor lounge spaces offers guests the perfect refuge in which to rejuvenate body and soul. Alto Atacama encourages guests to get off the beaten track, interact with the local indigenous culture and explore the varied and eerily beautiful desert landscapes by foot or bike. 

Why We Love It

The tranquility, silence and sweeping views offers guests the perfect refuge in which to rejuvenate body and soul.

More than half of the lodge's staff is indigenous, and their personal stories enrich a guests' understanding of the region.

Explore the area on daily excursions lead by highly trained local guides from volcano climbs to mountain biking through desert canyons.
