Champagne and Volcanoes in Chile

You and Mother Nature.

It’s been too long since the two of you connected.

We mean really spent some quality time together. Cracked open a bottle of champagne, posted up next to a volcano, relaxed. In Chile...

Welcome to Awasi Lodge, a volcano-rimmed sanctuary in one of the world’s most extreme environments, Chile’s Atacama Desert, taking reservations now for a secluded, geyser-spewing tryst with nature.

This place feels like the summer home of some Incan playboy (you know the type).

You’ll be bedding down in one of eight huts, under a roof supported by tree branches and thatched with straw from the nearby San Pedro River. (Rainfall only tops out at around .004 inches annually, so you should be good, rainwater-on-mattress-wise.)

Inside your room: linens and furniture handwoven by local tribes. And outside: a private patio that’s practically begging you to merge stargazing and showering from your outdoor solarium in ways you never thought possible. Nearby: the lodge’s rock bar, made from local rocks. (You saw that coming...)

By day, you’ll have your own personal adventure guide at the ready, meaning... whatever you want it to mean: off-roading around the geyser fields of El Taito, hand-feeding flamingos in the salt flats, floating in natural thermal pools, then perhaps a champagne-soaked picnic on one of the volcano bases.

Don’t worry, most of them aren’t active.
