Elqui Valley Spanish Tour from La Serena

1. Elqui Valley Spanish Tour from La Serena

Your day begins with an 8:30 AM pickup from your centrally located La Serena or Coquimbo hotel. Greet your guide, board the vehicle, and settle in for a journey of about two hours to Cochiguaz, in the Elqui Valley. After learning why some people call Cochiguaz the world's new geomagnetic center, and exploring a little of its new-age culture, pay a visit to a Pisco production plant. Discover how Chile's national drink is made and enjoy a tasting before returning on road that leads to Vicuña. Stroll through Vicuña as your guide explains how it is the most important town in the valley and also the hometown of the Nobel Prize-winning poet, Gabriela Mistral. There is also time to admire the Baüer Tower, main square, and church. Next, it's time for lunch in a typically Chilean restaurant. After lunch, descend into the valley to visit the tomb of Gabriela Mistral and her childhood school-house. Your tour concludes with a drop-off back at your hotel at around 6:30 PM.
