    There are sweets and marmalade made from the delicious local fruits all along Elqui Valley, as in Vicuna, Monte Grande and Pisco Elqui. There are also nice local art crafts. They are usually sold in street stalls or in a few shops in Vicuna.

    La Serena Transportation

    A quick tip! If you happen to be there in peak season and you are going north to San Pedro de Atacama be sure to book your bus ticket a couple of weeks in advance !!! The central bus station lacks in organisation so be careful with your bags while you are trying to find which bus is yours. There are no platform numbers or even platforms and there...

  • The Lighthouse

    Isla Damas Things to Do

    The best view of the island can be accomplished if you climb the huge rock where the lighthouse stands. It's an easy climb, and although there is a sign telling you not to trespass, then again, who will tell you not to? Climb it, take pictures, and go back down again. And please, don't play with the lighthouse. It's there for a reason. Take care of...

  • Beach #3

    Isla Damas Things to Do

    Last, but definately not least. This is, according to me (and everybody I went to the island with) the best beach on the island. It's definately one of the best beaches I've seen in Chile. Simply amazing. And calm. We were the only ones there.

  • Beach #2

    Isla Damas Things to Do

    From the campsite to the west (take your right at the whalebone), you'll find this beach which is surrounded by sea. Impressive. The picture shows the beach with low tides. Imagine it with high tides. A strip of white sand surrounded by ocean...

  • Mamalluca Observatory

    Vicuña Things to Do

    Unfortunately when I was in the Elqui Valley a visit to the Mamalluca Observatory didn´t fit in well with our schedule as we had decided to stay only in Pisco Elqui further up the valley and not in Vicuña. For those with an extra night to stay in Vicuña it would seem worthwhile visiting the observatory as the area is well known for its clear...

  • Embalse Puclaro

    Vicuña Things to Do

    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.).

  • Gabriela Mistral Museum

    Vicuña Things to Do

    As Vicuña is the birthplace of Gabriela Mistral and that she won a Nobel Prize for Literature we thought it would be interesting to go to the museum built in her honor. The museum contained a number of her works and had information and artefacts from her life. The explanations for everything were only in Spanish.Open Monday to Saturday from 10:00...

    Pisco Elqui Things to Do

    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...
