The cosmos has never seemed far from the arid desolation of the Atacama Desert. From the region’s indigenous peoples’ cosmology to the world’s largest radio telescope. From the frequent comparisons between this bizarre landscape and the surface of Mars.
Experience this firsthand through a night of private world-class stargazing.
Tour the desert with a knowledgeable local. Visit the Alma Observatory and learn of the distant stars and galaxies while seeing them with your own eyes.
Walk the quiet splendor of the Path of the Incas trail by the light of the moon and stars. Move through a desertscape occasionally punctuated by Inca-style houses and stone walls. Rest and warm your hands with hot cocoa, while watching the universe unfold.
