Tour Overview

The Atacama may be the driest desert in the world but it is rich in landscapes, unique formations and an unparalleled sense of mystery. salt flats, canyons, geological formations, Inca ruins, adobe houses and archaeological museums are just some of the attractions to be found here.

Awasi is situated inside an ancient site surrounded by a historic wall, which for years housed shepherds and herders. Its privileged location just a stone’s throw from the center of town makes it possible to enjoy “town life”. We invite you to visit the church, the museum, the fair, the picturesque local stores and get to know the people.

This new boutique lodge offers an exceptional level of service and detail for lodging in the middle of this great desert. With only 8 suites, each with private patios, sitting rooms and sundeck as well as a bathroom that allows for open air showers.

Excursions

We design tailor-made outings. At Awasi, excursions are private, exclusive, and are programmed according to your preferences and pace. Your private guide will help you to plan your trips and will accompany you during your stay. You can choose full- or half-day trips.
We offer easy strolls or intense treks for the more adventurous, horse-back riding, bicycle rides, visits to archaeological sites, visits to the salt flats, Altiplano lagoons or villages hidden among the deep valleys. You can get up at dawn to go and see the geysers and relax in the thermal pools. Bird watching or an evening astronomic tour with local guides are some of the experiences you can organize during your stay at Awasi.

Romantic escapades

We are specialists in creating special moments to rediscover one other in a romantic and private setting. A picnic and evening cocktails at an amazing place, followed by a swim by candlelight, aromatherapy and Atacama salts.

Family trips

We believe that exploring and traveling with your family is an important life experience. To share the emotion of adventures and excursions and enjoy the pleasures the hotel offers.
