Alfa Aldea

Practicar senderismo a la luz de la luna, mientras observas a ojo desnudo las bellezas del universo para luego terminar la velada apreciando los detalles de la luna con un telescopio de gran alcance, es lo que podrás disfrutar en este centro astronómico de corte familiar.

Llamado planetario natural por su ubicación estratégica en el Valle de Elqui, entre parrones vineros y cadenas montañosas, además de conocer más de los anillos de Saturno y las nebulosas disfrutarás de degustaciones de vinos de diferentes cepas para acompañar la experiencia.
