During their stay in Atacama the kids visit Moon Valley and a geyser field, observe an active volcano, and walk next to saline lagoons in the middle of the desert. After Atacama they fly to Valdivia and begin a road trip to the South, stopping by Pucon to swim in hot springs, visiting an area that was once destroyed by volcanic eruption and driving through Patagonia on the Carretera Austral.
