La Serena to the Elqui Valley

La Serena to the Elqui Valley which is home to some of the most sophisticated celestial observatories on the planet. The eclipse will begin about 4:30 PM and will end about 5:45! After the eclipse we’ll ride back to La Serena for the night and our hotel on the beach.

Day 5, Wednesday, July 3rd

La Serena to Copiopo

La Serena to Copiopo on the Pacific coast. Copiopo is in the heart of the Atacama and will seem a little desolate, and it came into the world spotlight because of a group of Chilean miners who were stuck underground for two months a few years ago. An amazing rescure was performed by drilling down into the chamber where the miners were stuck. The world watched in awe as they were rescued. The ride up to Copiopo is a stunning one as we pass through the seemingly endless dunes of the Atacama.

Copiopo to Antofagasta

A gorgeous ride along the coastal road and a visit to the world famous “hand in the desert” monument. Hotel for the night on the beach in town!

Day 7, Friday, July 5th

Antofagasta to San Pedro de Atacama

Another beautiful ride along the coast interspersed with patches of desert riding and wrapping up the day in San Pedro which is one of the coolest towns I’ve ever visited. It's kind of a cross between Sedona, Arizona and Moab, Utah. Imagine hippy art colony mixed with 4x4 adventurers from all over the world. My favorite town in South America by far... (yes it is that awesome !! 😊 ) Learn more here.
