Antakari Route, Rio Hurtado Valley.

2 Dias - 1 Noche

Only a 24 km of distance from Vicuña to the south, we can visit one of the most unknown valleys of the IV Region of Chile: The Rio Hurtado Valley, through the ancestral Antakari Route, placed between hills and gorges.

A valley in which muleteers can be seen living on these uninhabited places, lands of antique habitants, and the petroglyphs show the special connection that the locals have with nature.


The Rio Hurtado Valley is filled with colors and kind people, landscapes and aromas that will join us to an excursion of two days, walking by old paths of indigenous people, such as diaguita and molle. A valley that keeps a lot of stories and surprises.
