Copiapó Valley

Tour Copiapó, a quiet city with mining roots.

Immerse yourself in the turquoise waters of the Bahía Inglesa or Playa la Virgen beaches. And to the north discover the Pan de Azúcar National Park, home to numerous species that survive thanks to the camanchaca (ocean fog).

Other natural wonders include the Nevado Tres Cruces National Park and excursions to Laguna Verde, Laguna Santa Rosa, and Laguna Negro Francisco. If you like mountain climbing and have good training, the Ojos del Salado Volcano is your best challenge.

When the “El Niño” event leads to rains in the middle of the desert, a field of wildflowers, some of them very rare species, bloom north of Copiapó. Welcome to the blooming desert!
