Description

Immerse yourself in the awe-inspiring beauty of the night sky with our Stargazing Tour in San Pedro de Atacama. As dusk falls, you'll be whisked away to a remote location away from city lights, where the vast expanse of stars reveals itself in all its glory. Under the guidance of our expert astronomers, equipped with both computerized and manual telescopes, you'll embark on a journey through the cosmos. Witness the wonders of the southern hemisphere, from distant galaxies to glittering star clusters, and perhaps catch a glimpse of planets such as Jupiter or Saturn, depending on the time of year. But the experience doesn't stop there. Our bilingual guides will lead you on an educational tour of the night sky, using laser pointers to trace constellations and deepen your understanding of the celestial realm. Learn about the rich tradition of archeoastronomy in the Andean region from our knowledgeable speaker, Patricio, during an engaging talk. As the night progresses, indulge in the warmth of hot beverages provided on-site, allowing you to fully appreciate the tranquility of the desert night. And don't forget to bring your camera, as you'll have the opportunity to capture your own personalized night sky portrait under the guidance of our skilled photographers. The tour offers two departure times to suit your preferences, with convenient transportation provided from a central meeting point in San Pedro de Atacama. Whether you choose the earlier or later departure, you'll return with memories of a once-in-a-lifetime experience, enriched by the boundless wonders of the cosmos.
