Astronomical Tour with Guide and Pick Up to San Pedro de Atacama

29 reviews
We will make observation of the deep sky through high-end, computerized and manual telescopes with which we will make an equatorial and azumuthal sweep of the objects visible during the night in Atacama, depending on the time of the year we can observe: planets, open clusters and closed, galaxies and stars. Where we can distinguish its shape and colors with great ease. Add to the explanatory scientific talk of our astronomy guides Patricio and Nathan who seek to dynamically and didactically deliver the scientific information of the universe. We can also relate the visible constellations of the southern hemisphere with the help of a laser pointer. If you like to know about the Andean archeology-astronomy of Latin America, you should ask for an explanation from Patricio, who is the speaker in the explanatory talk about how our American ancestors related the cosmos to the geographical and cultural zone.

Another place if you love geology you must to visit. Here we can find different kind of minerals and the visible stratification and action of the faults makes this place a "geologist holy grail". Fortunatly as I did private tours, we did this visit after lunch when the area was completly empty and I spent several hours walking and taking photos of this geo wonder.

A magnificent place with many colors and a very rich geological and patrimonial history. Combine yes or yes with the petroglyphs of Yerbas Buenas

you can go with your 4X4, honestly you don't need a guide or a tour bus to go there. This place is magic, like if you just landed on red planet.

Valle Arcoiris or Rainbow Valley is situated at a little more than an hours drive from San Pedro De Atacama. One can appreciate nature at one of it’s best over here, with the various rock formations and different shades of colors including green, red and grey. The entire experience of seeing the desert landscape while driving including some wild life was a bonus. One can easily visit the Petroglyphs attraction on the way back to San Pedro De Atacama. Surprisingly, Valle Arcoiris is an underrated attraction within the Atacama Desert, which should not be missed.

You will have to take a trip from wherever you're staying in or around San Pedro, but it's more than worth the effort
