In the Atacama Desert, you experience a unique and unrepeatable sensory adventure with a balanced level of knowledge of the Andean cosmovision of the sky and the scientific and formal language of the stars. Our prepared guides assist you in combining traditional scientific astronomy with the ancient Andean vision that had the first astronomers in this place, long before the first telescope was used. The beauty and solemnity of celestial bodies can be observed in the middle of the driest desert in the world, where the Atacama desert has one of the most star-spangled skies in the world due to the extraordinary diaphanousness of the desert air.
In Andean culture, astronomy is essential in the daily life of their agropastoral societies, and it integrates and influences their architecture, art, music, and dances. To immerse yourself even deeper into this ancient experience, you gather around the fire to share the stories, myths, and legends related to heaven, just like grandparents do. This activity offers you the opportunity to gaze at the night sky with the naked eye, recognize constellations, or admire the moon to interpret and share modern and ancient knowledge. As a complement, you also have the chance to observe the stars and the moon through the modern telescope.
