Head out of La Serena and be prepared for something diferent. We took a guided tour with Ecoturismo La Serena and highlights were the landscapes, the dam, and the charming town of Vicuña. Don't miss it.

If you are in Northern Chile in the region of La Serena, the Elqui Valley is definitely a place you must visit ! There's plenty to be done there and matter to occupy several days. Among them: - Puclaro Dam - Pisco distilleries - Vicuña...More
