Beating the heat was never such an adventure.
Exploring the Atacama Desert, Chile
It might be considered the low season, but with temperatures that rarely top the 70-degree mark in July and August (instead of the 100-degree heat waves in January), Chile’s secluded Atacama Desert is ripe for outdoorsy explorations right now. Luxury all-inclusive lodge Awasi pairs each room with a 4x4 and a bilingual guide to take guests on all kinds of excursions—from historical tours of the town of San Pedro to guided hikes through the desert to full-day bike rides along the San Pedro River. But the Atacama Desert might be at its most stunning at night; with some of the lowest light pollution in the world, the sky becomes bright with stars. From $2,590 for three nights; Caracoles, San Pedro de Atacama; 56-2/2233-9641; awasiatacama.com.
