Overland adventure across the World’s Driest Desert outside of the polar regions

There are still a few places left on this planet where you can make a pioneering journey: Argentina’s Atacama Plateau and Chile’s Atacama Desert is one of them. A land where nature is still the owner; a land of colors and silence; where the sheer size and beauty of the landscapes is truly humbling. An unknown territory for most people, it is a land that leaves its mark. Exploring what this otherworldly landscape has to offer requires some effort but it more than pays off. This overland expedition will take you through some of the challenging trails of the world's ultimate rally - Dakar. You will be driving across this elevated plateau of wildly striking and desolate landscapes filled with the rare sights of salt flats, flamingos, ancient Incan trails, desert labyrinths, herds of llamas and vicuñas, the turquoise lakes and clay-brick pueblos.
