Details of the tour

We will pick you up at your accommodation between 21:30 and 22:00, to go to a sector with less artificial light, from where we will have our astronomical experience.

This tour is divided into three activities. First we will have a short Introduction of astronomy to learn the basic concepts of this science and make the most of the following activities.

Then we will go to the outside to see the sky with the naked eye, where we can already identify the points explained in the first activity.

Our third activity will be in the available telescopes, from where we will be able to see even more points of the milk route.

This tour also includes a small picnic with wine, juice, coffee, tea, cheese, and a picture of the group with the starry sky in the background. If you want an individual photo, you must request and pay the part at the time of the tour.

We will finish the tour leaving you in the center of San Pedro de Atacama, around 00:20.

IMPORTANT: *The tour does not take place during periods of full moon, since the brightness and luminosity of the sky do not allow astronomical observation.

 

Withdrawal points

We will pick up at the hotels and airbnb located inside the city of San Pedro de Atacama. If your hotel is in another area, we will establish a meeting point.

 

What to take for the ride
