The Experience

El valle de Elqui es un destino místico donde se concentra el 70% de los observatorios astronómicos de Chile! Debido a la pureza de sus cielos, construiremos un nuevo hostel con el mismo estilo y buena onda del que tenemos en La Serena. Lo bueno para ti es que al ser nuestro voluntario en el valle tus días libres también podrás hospedarte en nuestro hostel de La Serena y conocer la playa y el valle de nuestra región. Te esperamos!
