Rainbow Valley (Valle del Arcoiris)
When you see the stark, bright colors of San Pedro de Atacama and its surroundings, you may wonder how much of a standout Rainbow Valley (Valle del Arcoiris) could really be. The valley, however, located 50 miles from town, is home to tremendous variety of things to see and views to gaze upon. Mineral deposits have left vibrant reds, browns, purples, greens and yellows on the rocks in this area over the course of thousands of years, and in addition, the wind and very occasional rain have carved interesting shapes, rocky spires and small canyons into the valley. At 11,500 feet above sea level, this area makes for slow but worthwhile exploring.

In addition to the bright photogenic colors, Hierbas Buenas also makes for a popular stopping spot for visitors with its thousands of petroglyphs carved into stone by early Atacama dwellers, some about 11,000 years old.

Practical Info

Rainbow Valley is less popular among tourists than other noteworthy sites, so expect smaller crowds here. If you decide to go on your own, bring a good map and make sure to go in the morning when the colors are most visible. Sunscreen, sunglasses, water and extra layers against wind are musts.
Address: Domeyko Mountains, Chile

PRIVATE PROGRAM 4 DAYS / SAN PEDRO DE ATACAMA4WD, ATV & Off-Road Tours

SPECIAL OFFER

PRIVATE PROGRAM 4 DAYS / SAN PEDRO DE ATACAMA

This is a 4 day program, ideal minimum stay to enjoy the region. The emblematic Valley of the Moon receives them the first day; the Rainbow Valley shows us another color of the desert; and from the second day we enter the vast Andean Altiplano that gives us some of the innumerable postcards that this territory offers.All the tours have their "particular touch": avoid the schedules of greater flow of tourists; tour other sectors less visited and of great value; share a picnic surrounded by nature; or simply share moments of conversation and silence while touring San Pedro de Atacama and its surroundings.I see tourism as an art that requires dedication in details and elegance in its execution; each program is special and each excursion an opportunity to meet with the enjoyment of life and its beauty. That's why I enjoy organizing and guiding private programs, fostering an intimate and authentic encounter with the environment.

PRIVATE PROGRAM 3 DAYS / SAN PEDRO DE ATACAMA

I see tourism as an art that requires dedication in details and elegance in its execution; each program is special and each excursion an opportunity to meet with the enjoyment of life and its beauty. That is why I only dedicate myself to organizing and guiding private programs, fostering an intimate and authentic encounter with the environment.This is a short, three-day excursion program, with some classic tour options such as Valle de la Luna and Tatio Geysers and other less visited ones that are really worth knowing and including. All the tours have their "particular touch": avoid the schedules of greater flow of tourists; tour other sectors less visited and of great tourist value; share a picnic surrounded by wonderful landscapes; or simply share good moments of conversation and silence while touring San Pedro de Atacama and its surroundings.If that is what you are looking for in a trip, do not hesitate to contact me.
