We came here because the Laguna Miscanti and the geysers were closed due to snow and were still extremely happy with it. It shouldn't be the top thing on your list but it should be very high. The rocks tower over you and have varying...More

Rainbow valley was stunning. We went with turis tours who were very good. We also went to Rio Grande village - a good chat as we walked round but it would have been good to go in a house or even the church. The rock...More

We went to San Pedro de Atacama in early March 2017 and spent 6-7 days visiting the main attractions. The Valle de Arco Iris was the best of all. They are incredible mountains, with amazing formations and incredible combination of colours (more colours than the...More

Among San Pedro de Atacama's many sites, Rainbow Valley is truly a must see! So much is packed into one walk through the desert. I went with Explora Atacama, but I’m sure other companies provide a similar itinerary. Begin with the dramatic desert landscape, sculpted...More

Beautiful trip in the desert with colorful rocks all around. The walk was very nice and we talked about geology, rocks and their unique colours. Perfect if you want to take beautiful pictures.

This is an easy half day trip to a spectacular valley. Many weird shapes of rocks and hills through erosion full of different compositions of minerals. Green, reds, white, yellow, blueish it's all there and it contrasts sharply with the deep blue morningsky. For those...More

We are leaving in 10 days to visit the San Pedro area. Too many great things to do! We reserved a pick up truck to rent but are not sure what we actually will receive. Is the rainbow Valley a place one can easily get to with a rental car? And if so, how much of it can one see without a pretty decent 4 x 4? thanks for any assistance?

getting to the Rainbow valley may take some preplanning with a map. Not sure as I went with a guide, but maybe an hour from San Pedro on the highway to Calama and then a secondary road all the way to the valley... More
