Horseriding in Valle de la Muerte - San Pedro de Atacama

Horseriding in Valle de la Muerte

Horseriding

Another thing to do here is to see the scenery on horseback. Like in western movies, horses and desert go well together. There are various agencies who will set you up with some horses and a guide. I will never forget my very first full-throttle fast gallop in the middle of Valle de la Muerte, or going down a huge sand-dune with the horse.

Equipment: Appropriate pants and footwear, water.

Sandboarding in Valle de la Muerte - San Pedro de Atacama

Sandboarding in Valle de la Muerte

Sandboarding

Whether you have tried it or not you should go to Valle de la Muerte for some sandboarding. The scenery is amazing, and the experience is so much fun! You can either rent a sandboard & bike from San Pedro and cycle there, or else you can go with an instructor (which is a good idea for beginners). Whether you get the hang of it or not, you are guaranteed an entertaining couple of hours. One word of warning though - be prepared to clean up sand from every orifice, wrinkle and crease in your body for days afterward!

Equipment: You can rent sandboads from agencies in town. You will also need something to wax the sandboards, usually a candle will do.
