PRIVATE TOURS / FAMILY

Thinking about the welfare of our travellers and having the idea of giving them a tour program which allow them to enjoy the beautiful landscapes in this place.

W&P Acamarachi has the following services:

  • Children chairs (from 0 to 4 years)
  • Trekking chairs (from 0 to 2 years)
  • Food. If you need boiled water to prepare milk we can add that service
The following reasons explain why it is not advisable for some people to go on some tours.

1. Tatio Geysers, Tara Salt Flat, Piedras Rojas and Altiplanic Lagoons are located at more than 4.000 M.A.S.L. and for this reason travellers can suffer from "apunamiento" (symptoms due to altitude) because of the geological formation in this area this altitude (4.000 metres) can be reached in a short period of time.

2. During the summer the temperature can be 0 degrees Celsius and during the winter the average temperature is -10 degrees Celsius.

3. The roads are not in good conditions.
