The two programs highlight the best tourist attractions in the altiplano and desert regions, and include a visit to the Atacama Large Millimeter Array (ALMA) site as well as one night of amateur astronomical viewing near San Pedro de Atacama, the ultimate mecca of tourism and astronomy in the Atacama.

These programs are particularly well suited for amateur astronomers, but also designed for people who enjoy contact with pristine nature and and are interested to be initiated on the observation of the stars, planets, and the depths of space. The tours, designed by two astronomers, take great care to provide opportunities for observing, and learning about the jewels of the southern hemisphere skies.
