Located only 20 kilometers away from San Pedro de Atacama and at 2,300 meters above sea level, Cejar Lagoon is surrounded by salt crystals in the middle of the Atacama Salt Flat, in a really beautiful environment. It’s remarkable to say that its waters have a buoyancy level that is higher than that of the Dead Sea, because of the high salt and lithium concentrations. Nearby there are also the Ojos del Salar, also known as Eyes of the Salt Flat, two freshwater pools that invite it you to take a bath.
The tour begins with a pickup from your hotel in San Pedro de Atacama to go to enjoy a refreshing afternoon in the lagoons in the Salar de Atacama. Your first stop is at Cejar, a turquoise lagoon with high salinity, similar to the Dead Sea. Then, visit the eyes of the Salar, two small ponds which contain water almost unsalted, where most people feel the salt from the previous lagoon. (entrance not included)
Finally, go to the Tebinquiche's lagoon where you can enjoy a sunset in the company of a very nice snack to finish your relaxing adventure. After this great experience, begin your trip back to your hotel in San Pedro de Atacama.
