We have teamed up with award-winning photographer Ignacio Palacios, a Spanish/Australian photographer who has traveled to this continent many times. Apart from knowing all the beautiful locations intimately that we will visit during this trip in Bolivia and Chile, he is also a very good photographer and a great person to travel with. All good reasons for us to team up with him and to co-host a few tours.

This exciting tour takes you to Puna, a rugged and beautiful section of Argentina. Dazzling, defiant, and awe-inspiring. Puna de Atacama is unlike anything you’ve seen before.

The first time you see this incredible high desert, it’s as if you’ve stepped onto another planet. A planet where rugged rust-hued rock formations, dramatic sand dunes, formidable mountains, striking lava fields, and hypnotic turquoise-pools reign supreme.

Puna is a landscape that could rival even George Lucas’ imagination, and we’re proud to announce we will be leading a photo tour there with Ignacio. It will be an extraordinary photography expedition to Puna de Atacama, Argentina.

Ignacio has created an extensive PDF for this tour, full of wonderful pictures of the locations we’ll be visiting, including a detailed itinerary. Please download the PDF at the bottom of this page.
Also, there is a beautiful video, showing you the magic of Puna. If you have a drone: bring it!
