We will pick you up to travel 6.2 miles from San Pedro de Atacama, to the place where you will make this activity. There, you have this Astrophotography Tour, in a place with few light pollution, special for the observation of the night sky. The tour, organized in three stages, will have an Andean Cosmovision talk. The same way, there will be a moment of telescope observation, in which you will be able to see planets and some details not visible with the naked eye. Finally, you will have a photo shoot with the starry sky as background so you can take a memory from this experience.

 

*The order of the stages can change without any notice.


*The pictures included correspond to 3 pictures with stars, per person. We will share them through a link up to 4 business days after the tour.


*During full moon nights, the tour is normally taken, but the observation and the pictures change, due to its too bright for having a stary background.


*For the next accommodations the pickup and drop off service will be with a meeting point:

 

  • Ckoi Atacama Lodge Hotel and Airbnb accommodations located at Callejón Río Pacsa. In this case, the meeting point will be Hotel Don Raúl.
  • Accommodations located outside the urban area of San Pedro de Atacama.
  • Accommodations located at the ayllus (Quitor, Yaye, Checar, Sequitor, Solor or Coyo) or in Toconao.
  • Accommodations located at alleys or streets in which vehicles cannot enter.
  • Accommodations located at the historical downtown San Pedro de Atacama (during certain dates it is forbidden to enter by vehicle to the area).

Frequently Asked Questions

  • Which is the difference between the Astronomical Tour and the Astrophotography Tour?

    Both tours include telescope observation, but the Astronomical Tour has more technical information for people enthusiastic about astronomy. On the other hand, the Astrophotography Tour gives you easier information and adds a special stage about Andean cosmovision.
