    Turismo Migrantes: Outdoor Activities

    by TravelCe Written Nov 26, 2011

    During our stay in Pisco Elqui, we joined several outdoor activities offered by the tour operator "Turismo Migrantes." We did a downhill tour by bike, where we got to know the villages until the very end of the Elqui Valley and also the Pisco distillery Los Nichos- definitely recommendable. The path was not difficult and the mountainbikes of best quality.
    But my favourite tour was a horesback riding at night, combined with an astronomical excursion. The horses took us towards the mountains(we both had no experience on horseback, which was no problem) where we had a campfire, we shared a glass of pisco sour and did stargazing, the guide explained us some of the constellations. The atmosphere was great- very relaxed and almost homelike.
    The reasons why I definitely recommend the agency Migrantes are their entertaining and at the same time informative excursions and the friendly guides with english knowledge.

    Embalse Puclaro

    by kiwigal_1 Updated Jan 16, 2009

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    On the road between La Serena and Vicuña, just before arriving in Vicuña at about Km 56 there is a small town called Gualliguaica and the Embalse Puclaro (Puclaro Dam). The Dam is worth a visit for its stunning views down the valley. The Embalse Puclaro is a place where water sports can be done also (water skiing, windsurfing etc.).

    On your way to Pisco Elqui from La Serena I recommend a stopover at the Embalse Puclaro to check it out.
