Itinerary description

A cycling trip from San Pedro de Atacama to Valle de la Luna (first) and Valle de la Muerte. The total distance is 37km but you should stop in many (signed) places in the valleys to explore it (especially in Valle de la Luna), so devote a whole day. There are no places to buy drinks so prepare accordingly. It's a much better way to explore the valleys than the guided van tours, although you will get sweaty on some ascends.
The majority of the trip is on a gravel road, except for the first few kilometers between San Pedro and the entrance to the Valle de la Luna, and then a few kilometers on the road no. 23 which connects to Valle de la Muerte. Please be dilligent to not miss the turn left from this road to Valle de la Muerte. In Valle de La Luna you mainly bike uphill, while in Valle de la Muerte it's basically a downhill with amazing views of the altiplano.
