We will make observation of the deep sky through high-end, computerized and manual telescopes with which we will make an equatorial and azumuthal sweep of the objects visible during the night in Atacama, depending on the time of the year we can observe: planets, open clusters and closed, galaxies and stars. Where we can distinguish its shape and colors with great ease. Add to the explanatory scientific talk of our astronomy guides Patricio and Nathan who seek to dynamically and didactically deliver the scientific information of the universe. We can also relate the visible constellations of the southern hemisphere with the help of a laser pointer. If you like to know about the Andean archeology-astronomy of Latin America, you should ask for an explanation from Patricio, who is the speaker in the explanatory talk about how our American ancestors related the cosmos to the geographical and cultural zone.

* A traveler said: "Great bus tour through many of the sights around San Pedro. Our guide, Ricardo, was great. Lots of good knowledge (in English and Spanish) with a fun, charismatic energy. Breakfast was very nice. Better than the standard hostel/hotel fare for sure. Be prepared for high altitude though. One person on our tour spent most of the time with his head in a bucket or sleeping on the bus."

Waking up early in the morning for an almost two hours travel is only justified if you experience the dawn surrounded by El Tatio Geysers, exhaling the steam that contrasts with the cold invading your body, but which feels nice because you are sharing a unique effect with nature and the sunrise at 4500 meters high. After a few minutes walking in this phenomenon, you admire it while you warm up your hands and body with a breakfast in the heights of San Pedro de Atacama hills, to then relax in the warm natural river pools that are located a little further downhill. When going down through the same paths that a few hours ago were completely dark, you can appreciate the fantastic view from the edge of the trails. Later on you can make a stop in the Putana wetland to rest, but also to admire the place’s fauna: flamencos and different type of birds in an exceptional lagoon surrounded by the path that leads to the town of Machuca.

A tour for the Atacama Desert heights, the antithesis of the region. Escaping from the ambient temperature to border the low temperatures, to feel the wind in the face and to fight against the hills’ heights and the volcanos slopes alongside the road that leads to Paso de Jama, frontier mountain pass with Argentina. Nonetheless, this tour invites you to know a more exclusive part of San Pedro: unique places with low traffic, where the sun touches the neck and the back, but the heat is unnoticed when the altiplanic cold goes through your arms and wraps you in its soft breeze to take you to cross the hills’ slopes over 4000 meters high. In this tour you visit unique lagoons, salt flats at the foot of hills, volcanoes and its erosions, and viewpoints with incredible sights that will take you to know the other side of the Atacama Desert.
