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.

A really great tour. The starry sky in the Atacama Desert is incomparable. Felipe gave us a lot of information about different constellations and their meaning for the Andean people. We could see the Milky Way and even Saturn including its rings (small but incredibly beautiful). The tour is really recommended! Thank you Felipe

Felipe was excellent I highly recommend this tour. He was an amazing host, he also is very knowledgeable in astrology. He only takes small groups so you get an amazing full attention. Book him!

This tour was so different from all the other tours you do in San Pedro. Felipe was very knowledgeable and fun. Definitely don’t miss out on this tour while in San Pedro

Excellent tour, sebastian took the time to explain everything we needed and some bonus tips for astrophoto. I highly recommend!

Really worth it. All very educational. You see images that I never really imagined I would see
