Chile’s San Pedro de Atacama; a Desert Lodge for Star Gazing

Framed by mountains and bright blue sky, the Alto Atacama lodge is situated at a perfect position in #Chile. During the day, lounge around the pool, soaking up the #desert sunshine, or enjoy the local touches which the hotel takes so much pride in.

Given that you’ll be staying in the Atacama Desert, be prepared for some solitude and reflection time. After all, why else did you travel so far from home? The Atacama Desert skies are known to have some of the clearest skies, so you take in all that the darkness has to offer from their observation platform or from a late night walk. 

SPACE (San Pedro de Atacama Celestial Explorations) also offers tours that feature Alain Maury’s take on the firmament and include see Jupiter, other planets and stars using 10 telescopes they have on hand.
