Half-Day Excursion with Sunset Experience at the Moon Valley

by Gray Line Chile Duration 5h Free cancellation available No booking or credit card fees
per adult Price is AU$38

The best place to enjoy the much anticipated Chilean sunset is in the Salt Mountain range, the location of the Mars and Moon valleys. The valleys contain a variety of stone, sand-like formations - a result of water and wind. As the sun sinks below the horizon, experience the wonder of the area and its close resemblance to the moon.

In the evening, one of the most expected moments is the sunset and the best place to appreciate it is the mountain range of the Salt, with its Mars and Moon Valleys that are saline and sacrilegious conformations product of the mineralogical folding that has taken place for one hundred million years and that originated small mountains of capricious and sculptural forms that at sunset resemble a Lunar landscape.

Your journey begins with pick-up from your selected hotel at 3:00 PM in the winter time or 3:30 PM in the summertime. Visit 3 main points, starting with a view of the Cordillera de la Sal in the Valley of death. Then, visit the Licanantay viewpoint where you can see the mountains of salt from above. Finally, visit the Valley of the Moon, where 3 sites are visited. First, a tour of the salt caves is subsequently the salt statues - Las Tres Marias, the amphitheatre, and the large sand dune in the central part of the Moon Valley. Wait for the sunset at the Coyote stone. After an incredible scenic sunset, begin the trip back to your hotel in San Pedro de Atacama.
