Balloons Over Atacama was launched in August 2016 now offering visitors a unique journey high above the Atacama Desert of Northern Chile. This is the first trip of its kind, an unforgettable way to soak up the drama of the desert. The daily flights take place at sunrise and last 45 minutes to an hour. With a vista of stark desert, stunning rock formations, all framed by a range of distant snow-capped volcanoes, passengers are in awe. Eastern safaris, the company behind Balloons Over Atacama, aims to bring an environmentally friendly form of travel to a unique, and fragile area. Classic and premium packages are available, and we’ll be happy to cater to greater groups as well. Can’t wait to get high up in the air? Contact us for further information and packages!
The Chilean Atacama desert is known to be the driest place on Earth! Yet sometimes, in the early Chilean spring, something remarkable happens to its arid landscapes: The desert starts to bloom and turns into a beautiful wildflower garden! The flowering desert is linked to the El Niño phenomenon and a result of unusually high rainfall during the months of July and August. The results can be enjoyed from September to November.
