Fray Jorge National ParkRegión de Coquimbo
Comprising 9,959 hectares at altitudes of between 0 and 667 meters, in the costal area of the Limarí zone, located 45 km east of Ovalle.
It was declared a National Park in 1941 and a World Biosphere Reserve in 1977.
We recommend visiting between October and November, which is flowering season for the lush vegetation that grows in the Park. Furthermore, numbers of visitors are restricted to lessen the threat of fire.
The Park is reached along a semi-desert road, which brings you to the Visitor Control Center, where you’ll be provided with information about entry to the park.
At the highest point, there is a hydrophilic wood, like those you get in the Valdivia area, where cinnamon trees, olive trees, and ferns grow have survived since prehistoric times due to the condensation of the coastal mist.
The park is open on Saturdays, Sundays and public holidays. During summer it is open from Thursday to Sunday.
