CHILE: Trail through the Atacama desert mountains

Here we have an fabulous recommendation for bicycle riders, mountainbike fans and off road tourers from the end of the world. While we traveled through Chile from north to south we had a break in San Pedro de Atacama. It´s a good spot to chill in the hot climate, as well you can do a lot of outdoor activities.
