San Pedro de Atacama: Astronomical Tour

1. San Pedro de Atacama: Astronomical Tour

Enjoy two different views of the night sky during your tour. The first will be the Western vision, which studies the universe, the brightness of the stars, and their planets. You can observe, with a telescope, objects in the solar system, deep space, and constellations. Learn about the cosmos and its formation.  Then, go on an ethnic astronomical journey to understand how the ancient inhabitants of the Andes interpreted the universe, the milky way, and the night sky. Many centuries before the arrival of the Spaniards, in the indigenous settlements of America, many wise observers of the universe interpreted the objects of the night sky. In all the black spaces, they observed figures that gave them information about their daily life including animals, water, rivers, schedules, and life after death.

What people are saying about San Pedro de Atacama

MARAVILHOSO

A unique, wonderful experience that deserves more than 5 stars. Managed by qualified people who are able to convey their passion for astronomy. Now I want to go back in the summer to see the differences in the sky. Thanks, thanks and thanks again. Stephen

The guides picked us up right from the place we were staying. They were friendly and helpful the whole time. The guides were very informative as they taught us about the things we were seeing in the sky. I would do this tour again!

A great tour with an English speaking guide. We could even see the rings of Saturn through a telescope. At the end we got a cheese platter and some wine. Very nice tour with lots of information.

Very knowledgeable guide, beautiful setting. Powerful telescope. Not deep in the desert, but at the far edge of posh compound.

One of the best trips

This is by far one of the best south american trips I have done so far. Couldn't recommend it enough. The staff are so helpful
