Itinerary

Begin your afternoon at 13:50 pm with transfer from your hotel in San Pedro to the Hidden Lakes. Located between the Domeyko and Salt Mountains, the lakes are hidden in the picturesque salt flats, and offer stunning views of the mountains on the horizon.

Throughout the day, you’ll stop at several of the “hidden” lakes. Due to the clay and salt-rich landscape, the lakes are often completely invisible until you’ve arrived, and they appear sunken and other-worldly in the barren landscape.

Upon arrival at the last of the lakes, you’ll have an opportunity to float! Jump in the deep, mountain-cold water, and feel yourself rapidly float to the top! Due to the high salt content in the water, you’ll be able to effortlessly lay back and allow the water to keep you afloat. Enjoy the views, the refreshing water, and the bizarre experience of total buoyancy.

To end the day, you’ll stop at a nearby overlook — Marte Valley — and enjoy a pisco sour cocktail as you watch the sun set over the stunning landscape. After you’ve toasted to the experience and to adventures ahead, you’ll be transferred back to your hotel in San Pedro.
