Valle Arcoiris, San Pedro de Atacama

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.
