We did the circuit Arica - Codpa (one night) - Putre (two nights) - Arica (one night). Its VERY recommendable to start the trip in Codpa, which is located at 1850 meters, before moving to Putre (3500 meters) Salar de Surire (4000 meters) and Lago...More
Don.t miss this experience. The long way is worth with no esitation. The road to go is spectacular and then the view on the salar with lamas, vicunas, flamingos is spectacular. You can easily do the round all around the salar. Don.t miss a bath...More

The experience of a chilly night sitting in the hot springs under the stunning canopy of stars is something I will never forget! We camped near the springs and the following day toured around the circular road stopping at overlooks to watch the flamingos, vicunas...More
A visit to Surire requres an expensive tour from Arica or your own vehicle. If you the latter, you can approach from one of three directions. The first, the longest, is from Colchane on the road from Iquique to the Bolivian border via the deserted...More
