Valle Arcoiris, San Pedro de Atacama

Wildlife Area
Travel the valley to see eye-catching rock formations of differing, vibrant colors at Valle Arcoiris. Pathways trail through the valley, offering you views of various rock structures on and around the mountain. Due to mineral deposits in the soil, the rocks hold clearly defined color variations, so the mountainprojects a rainbow-like appearance. Take a tour or rent a car to visit this natural attraction. If you would like to have the area to yourself, visit during the afternoon when the site has the fewest tourists. There are no restrooms in the area, and you will need to take your own food and water with you. Our San Pedro de Atacama holiday planner makes visiting Valle Arcoiris and other San Pedro de Atacama attractions simple, and helps you make a travel plan personal to you.

  • Amazing place, breathtaking scenery, we went with the company flamingo, half-day tour along with visit to cave drawings, worth the visit

  • It is a remote place and it is more expensive than other tour, but it is really beautiful, because you do not know that that combination of colors can be in a mountain. You should go with clothes of trekking, much sunscreen and hat.
