Tatio Geysers

Please note that in order to reserve this tour, we need to pay the operator immediately, so all bookings are final. If you have any questions before booking or want to confirm a certain date, please email us at info@keteka.com.

Overview

Located northeast to San Pedro de Atacama, the Geysers are considered one of the most beautiful spectacles to see in the region and in the world. This experience starts before dawn, so that you can observe the geysers when they are the most active. Additionally, you’ll get a chance to take a dip in a natural hot spring. Afterwards, we drive you through little village called Machuca, where you can get a sense of the indigenous culture of the area.

Note! The price does not include entrance to the park, which is $10,000 pesos, paid in cash to the park rangers. 

Meeting Time/ Drop Off

  • Pickup: 5:00-5:30am from the hotel
  • Return: Arrive back to the center of town around 12:30 p.m

What’s Included:

  • Transport to and from hotel to the geysers
  • Breakfast (yogurt, juice, eggs, jam, cheese, ham, butter, milk, chocolate milk, tea, coca tea, coffee)

Important Notes:

It is recommended that you bring heavy winter clothing, trekking shoes, a swimming suit, and a towel. This excursion to the Altiplano is at more than 4,000 meters. For this reason it’s recommended to remain hydrated. Also avoid alcoholic drinks the night before this trip, as it will cause sickness at the high altitude and you may not be able to join the tour. If you commonly suffer from altitude sickness we recommend taking this tour a few days into your visit to Atacama in order to acclimate. This excursion is not recommended for people who suffer from high blood pressure or heart deceases. Pregnant women and children younger than 4 years old should also skip this tour.

RULES AND REGULATIONS: In the geyser field visitors are allowed to walk only on authorized trails. To prevent accidents, it is important to respect trail limits.

This guide offers regular tours for groups of up to 15 people. Your reservation admits you to be a part of one of these groups. If you are interested in organizing a private tour for yourself or for a group, contact us in the chat box in the bottom right corner, or send us an email at info@keteka.com.

    A highly recommend a visit to Tatio Geysers. You get picked up super early (~5AM) in order to see the geysers in action in the early morning, but it is well worth it. It was dark on the drive to the geysers, so I slept in the comfortable van on the way. Our guide was very knowledgeable about the history of the geysers, spoke in both English and Spanish, and was beyond respectful of the natural habitat, showing us where we could and could not walk in order to help prevent new geysers from forming. Our guide and driver prepared a delicious scrambled egg breakfast! We then visited a local village, where people tried various cuisines, and a wetland before heading back to town. We were back by midday and in time for an afternoon Calama flight.

    Our guide for this tour was wonderful. Due to poor weather conditions, there was tons of fog around the geysers, so our guide took us to the areas with only the best views and allowed us to stop and visit other places on the way back since the geysers were kind of hard to see. We also had a delicious breakfast of fresh bread, cheese, eggs, hot chocolate, coffee and more! We saw many animals and our guide taught us a lot about them, as well as the geysers and other natural highlights. You can also try llama meat at a local village that raises them. I recommend bringing very warm clothes as well as a bathing suit and towel for the hot springs – it’s a must to take a dip in them!

    Our guide really knew how to make the best of a less-than-ideal situation. The weather wasn’t great to see the geysers, so our guide made the decision to give us a more abbreviated tour of them before moving on to spend more time at stops with incredible views on the way back. It was definitely a good idea on her part. Some tours were still spending plenty of time just wandering around in the low visibility, which seemed significantly less intriguing
