Valle Arociris (Rainbow Valley) is located about an hour from San Pedro de Atacama, Chile. It is surrounded by volcanos (some active) and located in the driest place on earth. Beautifully colored hills give the valley its name.

Valle Arcoiris (Valley of the Rainbow) is not easy to find or get to, but is well worth the extra effort it takes to see. The best way to see this colorful and beautiful site is with a guide. The route to Valle Arcoiris is...More
