Tour description provided by Viator

The Cejar Lagoon is located within the Salar de Atacama, 20 kilometers from San Pedro de Atacama. It is recognized by the strong Calipso color of water and is surrounded by salts of various forms.Due to its high concentration of salt, a result of the subterranean aquifers of the melted ice of the mountains, the Cejar Lagoon is a mixture of mystery and fun. As much as we want to dive we are "thrown" the surface, not allowing us to sink.By the end of this tour we are also able to see the amazing sunset in the desert.
We start the tour from our office in San Pedro with a maximum of 15 people per van. The guide will receive you and then we head to Laguna Cejar The tour includes the park entrances.    Departure time: 15:30hrs/7hrs   Arrival time: 20:10hrs.  This tour includes snacks. On this tour  we will drive to Laguna Cejar, a lagoon in the middle of the desert, that due to the high concentration of salt  you can swimm and don't sink. You will be able to spend a very nice day and enjoy the landscaping that the desert has to offer.The landscape is one of the most attractive of the Atacama desert, where the blue of the sky, the white of the salt, the celestial of the water and the pink of the flamingos that come to feed. It is better to always walk with shoes because the salts have sharp points that can cut the feet
