Chile travel

Stargazing

In Chile, you’ll find the world’s clearest skies. Its nature, geography, climate and position in the world turn the skies of this country into a real window to the universe.

For a unique experience of connection with nature, visit the northern and the central parts of the country and enjoy the enormity of the universe away from the buzz of the big cities.

Places like San Pedro de Atacama, Elqui Valley and Cajón del Maipo with their almost non-existent light pollution, make these destinations the ideal spot to enjoy the quiet of the night.

Watch the stars, hunt for a shooting star and learn about the constellations and planets. Enjoy a nighttime excursion guided by experts in the middle of the world’s driest desert or accompanied by the sound of the water in some of the most fertile valleys in the country.
