Overview
More
We started operating in San Pedro in 2003 and now have by far the largest public observatory in South America, with 11 telescopes between 20 to 72cm diameter. Most other tours in Chile use telescopes which are 3 to 4 times less luminous. We offer tours in different languages (english french and spanish) by guides who are competent in astronomy and who do speak these languages natively. If you want to observe through the sky through the largest visual telescopes in South America, and see the marvels of our universe, we are the place.

We know little about space but decided to check out this tour as there is so little light pollution in San Pedro and it’s a popular tour. The first booking was cancelled due to cloud cover, we appreciated that Space take it seriously as we...More

We loved this tour, of all the plans we had for our time in San Pedro this was the real make or break event: if this failed then the whole trip would be a washout. It was a spectacular success, it's just not possible to...More

We joined this tour and find it interesting and nice to see the amazing stars and milky way. The husband and wife are very knowledgeable about the stars and galaxies. Although they have big binoculars to see the stars and planets, it’s still relatively small...More
