Night Photographic Tour

This new excursion is a new option for a night outing where we will visit some outdoor places away from light pollution to enjoy the wonderful night sky that characterizes the Atacama Desert. The tour is focused to contemplate the stars in the middle of nowhere, enjoy the silence and totally disconnect. In addition, we will take beautiful photographs using different techniques to obtain beautiful photographs for social networks. There will also be a brief talk on astronomy seen from the Andean cosmovision and the interpretation of the night sky for the ancient Atacameños. Ideal tour for those who just want to enjoy the night sky and get beautiful photographs, for photographers who want to photograph in the Atacama and for anyone who wants to see a wonderful starry night.


The route of the tour varies according to the Moon, on days when the moon is not or less than 40% brightness, sites will be used to enjoy the Milky Way since it will be the highlight of the photographs. During periods of full moon or with luminosity greater than 40%, we will visit places where the natural light of the moon will illuminate the whole environment and in the final photograph the landscape will be highlighted over the starry sky. In addition, any camera with manual mode that you take serves to be able to photograph the night sky and we will give you tips to take that photo, remember to bring a tripod.
