The ultimate stargazing fantasy is coming true. Combined the best Atacama stargazing experience and a secret trail of the romantic landscape, this is undeniable the most exclusive tour ever offered in Atacama.

The driest place on earth, Atacama Desert features crystal clear sky like nowhere else. The Alma observatory, which owns the world’s largest radio telescope, is a testament for Atacama’s perfect condition for stargazing. During a private visit to the observatory, the experienced guide and astronomy specialist will explain to travelers his extensive knowledge about galaxies’ mysteries and wonders, all visible to the naked eye and telescopes.
