For centuries, astronomers and observers have traveled from all over the world to view the universe from the Atacama desert. Due to the uniquely clear skies almost all year around, they come to experience the cosmos in a way that can’t be experienced anywhere else.
In this ethno-astronomy tour we present the night sky through an Andean lens, the same lens that is still observed and recognized by native Atacameños.
You will leave knowing the name and significance of every constellation, and with knowledge and respect for the native people and their beliefs.
This tour will pick you up at your place of lodging between 21:00 and 21:30.
This experience is divided into three parts:
Both English and Spanish guides are available.
Depending of the weather conditions and positions of some stars at the night sky, it might change the order of the first and third part of the observation.
We recommend that you wear warm clothing, as it can get quite chilly at night!
