Cejar Lagoon Tour: Ride Bike to the Lagoon and Effortlessly Float in the Salt-Dense Water
Like the Dead Sea, the Atacama’s salt flat lagoons are so salty that you float without even trying! On this afternoon float in Cejar Lagoon, relax and swim in the salt-dense waters under the backdrop of the endless sky, an immensely flat expanse, and Licancabur Volcano rising on a distant horizon.
Choose to reach Cejar Lagoon by bike (15 miles/24 kilometers) along flat, scenic desert trails, and reward yourself with a relaxing in the cool desert lagoon! Or, choose to go by van and stop at a few other lagoons along the way. All travelers will transfer back to San Pedro de Atacama by van.
