Countless cultures have gazed at the heavens and found answers and direction within the patterns of planets, stars and constellations on view. The starry night skies are still a source of constant fascination to the human race, and Naya Traveler invites wanderers to come to Latin America to discover the night skies for themselves on a curated stargazing itinerary.

Chile

Thanks to plenty of wide-open spaces and desert plateaus, perfect star-gazing conditions are available in multiple locations. The Atacama Desert in Chile, an area that enjoys more than 200 cloudless nights per year, is the perfect longitude and latitude for nighttime star fests. The itinerary includes daytime visits to Valle de las Luna and nighttime journeys to area observatories, where guides assist guests with identifying planets, mysterious nebulae and other celestial bodies on view through observatory telescopes.

Bolivia

Boliva’s Salar de Uyuni — the planet’s largest salt flat and one of the world’s natural wonders — is a staggering 6,200-plus square miles set at an altitude of 11,811 feet. That’s already pretty close to the night sky, and you can feel even closer with a stay in one of Kachi Lodge’s luxury geodesic domes situated at the base of Tunupa Volcano.

Peru

Isolation, altitude and clear night skies are hallmarks of the Andean Altiplano. For centuries, the Incan and modern Quechua peoples found great spiritual significance in the stars above this area and legendary Lake Titicaca.

Argentina

Yes, the Patagonian Steppe is steeped in mystery and wonder — and you can experience it yourself as you contemplate the Milky Way in the expansive sky above the snowy peaks of the Andes. By day, explore Perito Moreno glacier, then settle in at Eolo Lodge, part of the Relais & Chateaux collection. Your cosmic journey will be guided by an expert astronomer. Details include trip rates for each itinerary and are available at the Naya Traveler website.
