The main element that differentiates us from other astronomical experiences is our story, which was designed to reconnect travelers with the sky through a stellar journey through time and under the worldview of different cultures.
For this experience we have a specially adapted natural space, respecting the environment and free from noise and light pollution. We have state-of-the-art astronomical observation equipment, which makes this experience even more interesting.
In addition, we offer a dedicated cocktail service with sweet and savory snacks, grain coffee, tea, and reserve wine.
It is a unique trip through the Atacama Desert

Tours in the middle of the desert in which you will observe sandy surfaces with salt splashes giving the sensation of being on another planet
We climb in height to live an experience of high and low temperatures in which we see eruptions of water and flora and fauna of the high plateau.
Until we find water in the middle of the desert.
Did you know that the Atacama Desert is considered one of the regions in the world with the best sky visibility conditions? This is due to the low humidity of the air and the very high altitude.
Done at night, during the Atacama Astronomical Tour you will discover an astronomical observatory.
It is worth remembering that the amount of stars seen from the place is immeasurable and due to the sky conditions, several tourists report that they see shooting stars crossing the sky! Isn't it amazing?
