"Awesome and memorable experience ♥ "
From the start of my retreat, it was an amazing experience. Josefina and Javiera were warm, friendly and welcoming from the time I met them. They provided delicious healthy fresh traditional Chilean meals that kept my palate happy, my tummy full and my energy peaked for the daily Yoga sessions.They had postive energy and were extremely patient with my sassy humor.These amazing women were more than just guides but they became friends. They led me on my first Hike abroad that was unnerving at first. But throughout the entire experience they were supportive, encouraging and ensured my safety was a top priority. They pushed me out of my comfort zone without compromising my confidence and I'm exceptionally grateful for them being apart of my milestone mini trek in South America.
yoga instructor Gemma was absolutely amazing! She led me through a customized yoga practice that gave my body strength and recovery. Her bubbly spirit and our constant giggly exchanges just enhanced my experience and allowed me to really engage whole heartily. Gemma sincerely helped improved my independent practice, my confidence in Yoga and I'm forever grateful ♥

Samadhi Expeditions - Women on Travel to the Desert of Atacama, Chile
The Desert of Atacama is a magic place and when you are on a travel in Chile it is most likely you want to go there. If you look for a different experience than go with the floods of tourists that arrive there I want you to recommend a women’s travel with Samadhi Expeditions. Just to travel with them to the various Moon, Rainbow and Mars Valleys – to the Lagunas with flamingos and amazing birdlife, to the Geysirs of Tatio - it is all a heartlifting experience, enjoying good music and a lot of good vibrations while you are on the road.
Javiera knows San Pedro and the desert like her home and also how to avoid the crowds so you still can have your deep and magic encounter with the desert, when trekking or walking while she also gives a lot of useful explanations as a tourguide . The team takes care of nice arranged picnicks and meals while you are on your tour. Javiera is also a certified YOGA teacher and to start the day with her Yoga class was the ultimative way to wake up into another day in the desert.
Travelling with Samadhi Expeditions was the best decision for me to travel in the desert of Atacama I could have made and looking forward new adventures with them also to other parts of Chile.
I had a fantastic experience booking my trek in Torres del Paine with Samadhi Expeditions. Javeria was wonderful and very professional in organising my trip - her responses to my emails were always very prompt and helpful, and she even offered me extra advice for my further travels. The expedition itself was brilliant organised and perfectly catered. Couldn’t recommend booking with Samadhi Expeditions enough.
I liked the retreat and outstanding teacher yoga instruction. I would give an 8.
Samadhi Expeditions provided me with an imaginative, tailored and varied experience of Chile which took in activities such as yoga practice on magnificent, wild beaches next to the Pacific Ocean, horse riding up to a spectacular glacier high in the Andes, trekking in search of colorful and unique volcanic hot springs, astronomical tours in the remote and mystical region of Valle del Elqui and artisan clay pottery classes and wine-tasting in the region around Santiago. A memorable five star experience with a fun, friendly and supportive team and one to keep coming back for!
