Valle del Elqui

Valle del Elqui

The journey that makes the Elqui river up to the beaches of La Serena spans some 140 km between hills planted with vineyards and peoples who for years have combined agriculture with tourism. The Elqui Valley is one of the most visited destinations of Chile, which you cannot miss if you are a nature lover and are looking for a relaxing experience and a different way of traveling through marvelous landscapes in a motorhome. Adentrándote 62 km to the east of La Serena by a paved road, you arrive to Vicuña, a quiet city, famous because here was born the poet and Nobel Prize in literature, Gabriela Mistral. From here you can continue on toward the interior of the valley until you reach Monte Grande, the village in which Gabriela Mistral spent his childhood and where it is still her school, home and her grave.
