We got there and we were greeted with a kind smile and very good summary of their activities. The price was reasonable amd the tour was perfect !
Astro Experience is a new service in the field of Astro-tourism: We carry out a professionally guided 2 hour observation of the valley´s starry night sky up in the mountains surrounding the village of Pisco Elqui.
The program combines a talk from an astronomical guide about the celestial objects (e.g.: planets, open and globular star clusters, other galaxies etc.) following with an observation through a professional 20” telescope. The tour is an open-air setting, accompanied by a campfire and our delicious home-made Pisco cocktail. The tour will end with a nocturnal photo as a souvenir of this night.
There are three options to reach the point of observation from Pisco Elqui.
Astroexperience by car: A 10 minute drive in a van from Pisco Elqui to reach the place up in the mountains.
Astroexperience by horse: One hour going uphill by horseback riding, then you will join the group for the Astroexperience. Return by car.
Astroexperience by foot: One hour uphill walk in order to reach the place, where you will join the group for the Astroexperience. Return by car.
