Experience Highlights

  • Duration: 3.5 hours

Experience one of the best places in the world for stargazing, the Atacama Desert. This unforgettable experience introduces visitors in the observation of the universe and offers the possibility of astronomical viewing through high-powered telescopes.

The first part of the tour provides an explanation of the skies seen through the naked eye. It offers basic concepts of what is viewed, such as constellations, what to learn from them, how to read a map of the skies and recognise important stars. When the moon is visible, a second possibility is offered involving direct observation through telescopes and taking pictures.

This is a unique experience that cannot be compared with images found in books or in the Internet. The chance of viewing the stars or a planet like Saturn definitely offers unforgettable moments.

Notes: These tours are offered on a daily basis and are only suspended when there is a full moon. The tours are 2.5 hours long and end with a hot drink before returning to San Pedro de Atacama. The desert nights are cold so that warm clothing is recommended in order to enjoy the tour/SIB
