You will get to know one of the areas with the greatest diversity of marine species on the Pacific coast “the borders of the Green North of Coquimbo and the beginnings of the driest desert in the world: the Atacama”. We will travel through attractive coastal landscapes and settlements of former shepherds, miners and farmers until we reach the origins of the most experienced indigenous fishermen in Chile “Los Changos, Choros and Camanchacas”. We will navigate the island of Chañaral de Aceituno to meet its abundant marine fauna where various species of whales, dolphins, mammals and seabirds stand out. You will relive the ancestral landscapes and distances navigated by the brave indigenous people who, attracted by the islands, managed to build the first and last sea lion leather rafts on the enigmatic coast of the Coquimbo and Atacama borders.
