Elqui Valley is almost hidden away in an area that isn’t on the international tourist trail. Most people will travel up the coast near La Serena (Where the beaches in Chile slowly start becoming warm enough to swim it), but if they venture towards the Andes they will be rewarded by one of Chile’s most important valleys. This is Elqui Valley, famous for pisco-producing and stargazing.
The valley is famous for one of the biggest producers of the grapes in Piso. While visiting be sure to check out a winery and enjoy some Piso drinks.
There are many little towns all with there own distinctive charm in Elqui Valley. Check out this site for more details
