Copiapó Valley

Enjoy the important natural attractions around Copiapó, a tranquil city with a mining background.

Dive into the turquoise waters of Bahía Inglesa or La Virgen beaches. And to the north, discover the Pan de Azúcar National Park, full of life thanks to the camanchaca (a mist that comes off the ocean), and home to several interesting wild animals.

Another natural wonder you can’t miss is the Nevado Tres Cruces National Park and the trips to Verde, Santa Rosa and Negro Francisco Lagoons. If you like mountaineering and you have good training, the Ojos del Salado Volcano is your best challenge.

When the “El niño” phenomena makes it rain in the middle of the desert, a wildflower field takes over the northern area of Copiapó with some very rare flower species. Welcome to the flowered desert!

Sometimes a new day is all you need for a new perspective. Sometimes though, you have to be a bit more intentional about clearing your mind.

A MAGICAL SUNRISE TOUR OF EL TATIO GEYSERS, CHILE

@Wanderlust Chloe

As I set my alarm for 4am, and rolled over in Hostel Desert – our cute little base in San Pedro de Atacama, I felt excited for the next day’s events. Over the past year or so of travel blogging I’d visited Costa Rican waterfalls, Guatemalan volcanoes, Mayan ruins, medieval Croatian cities and been swimming in several oceans, lakes and rivers. Up until now though, I’d never seen a geyser. In fact, I didn’t really know what a geyser was.
