This is a tempting proposal: to visit a large volcano with a spectacular emerald-green lagoon sitting at its feet. Early departure from San Pedro de Atacama towards the border with Bolivia, to get close to the Licancabur volcano. This stratovolcano is located at an altitude of 5,916 meters. (19,409 ft..) and its name in the Atacama language means “people’s mountain”. Nestling at its feet is beautiful Laguna Verde (green lagoon), a mountain lake with a high content of minerals and salt that colour its waters with a striking emerald-green tint. The scenario is almost surreal. To crown it all, the lagoon is home to flocks of pink flamingos that add to its breath-taking beauty. At the end of tour we return to San Pedro de Atacama.
