Astronomy of Chile: the Solar Eclipse tour
Travel to Chile for this once-in-a-lifetime astronomy tour that culminates with the awe-inspiring solar eclipse. Lose yourself in the fascinating history and colonial architecture of Chile’s capital city, Santiago and explore the sweeping coastal vista of Viña del Mar before meandering through the sloping streets and past the jumbled houses of the country’s most colourful UNESCO world heritage site: Valparaíso.
Fly north to study the mysteries of the cosmos with an astronomy tour from San Pedro de Atacama, before heading into the Atacama Desert. Be amazed by the Elqui Valley and visit the renowned Cerro Mamalluca Observatory. Finally, venture south to Temuco in the picturesque Chilean lake district and find yourself surrounded by towering waterfalls, verdant forests and smouldering volcanoes. The climax of the tour is the breath-taking solar eclipse that will occur over the dramatic landscape of Chile's northern Patagonia region. Return to Santiago with memories to last a lifetime.
