In stark contrast to the lush mountainous regions and deep blue lakes of southern Chile, the northern part of the country is home to the driest desert in the world. Featuring breathtaking natural sights and stargazing at night, this region is accessible through the mining city of Calama and El Loa Airport. One of the main attractions in the sprawling and wild desert is the world’s largest copper mine, which is open for free tours.

Whether you’re on the way to San Pedro De Atacama or interested in seeing more of the rugged beauty around Calama, it pays to experience both the natural grandeur and manmade attractions in the north of Chile.

Rent a Car and See the City

Though Calama is a desert city, the urban center is located by the Loa River. This river, along with its bordering wilds, comprise some of the area’s most cherished natural wonders. The city’s plazas and markets are easily walkable and make most of the local attractions easy to visit. The tours that begin in Calama can take visitors deep into the salt flats or into the desert at night to watch the skies, which are the clearest in the world.

The Archeological and Ethnographic Museum is a way to learn more about the cultures that predate the Spanish conquest of Chile. Artifacts from the period are present, and the museum is located at El Loa Park. The park is home to ethnographic and archeological features that will transport you back to those precolonial days.

Calama has grown in size and significance over the years, from a small spot on the map to a regional hub controlling the proceeds of the mighty copper mines. Located more than a mile above sea level, it overlooks the mines and villages of the desert.

Enjoy the Region

In addition to kayaking in the river, looking at stars in the desert and discovering the cultural history of Chile, the northern desert region offers other attractions. A free tour of Chuquicamata, the world’s largest open-pit copper mine, is sure to be an awe-inspiring experience. The visits are informative and present the photo opportunity of a lifetime, right next to the colossal machines that haul copper from the ground and keep northern Chile’s economic wheels turning.

Of course, Chile’s narrow shape means the ocean is always a short car ride away, and the mining towns and deserts give way to incredible beaches. Stargazing, surfing and taking trips into the grandeur of the salt flats are all exciting ways to make the most of your trip to northern Chile.
