June 29 – July 7, 2019:
Chile, especially Valle del Elqui, is an astronomer’s paradise and probably one of the best places on earth to enjoy a total solar eclipse and a starry sky. The Valle del Elqui is located only 400 kilometers north of Santiago and offers an ideal star-gazing environment with its lack of precipitation, clear skies and low-to-zero light pollution. It enjoys the highest density of observatories on earth and will be the center of the upcoming total solar eclipse on July 2nd, 2019. This trip is a combination of deep submersion into the Chilean culture and off the beaten track experiences with locals, while enjoying excellent international company.
