View a total solar eclipse in Chile and explore the stunning Atacama Desert
Witnessing a total solar eclipse, one of nature’s most spectacular astronomical phenomena, is a truly memorable experience. As the moon’s shadow passes over the Earth’s surface, you are plunged into an eerie darkness. At totality, as the last of the sun’s light disappears, it is difficult not to feel overwhelmed by the epic scale of the event. For most, this is a once in a life time opportunity and one that can only be enriched by being viewed in a beautiful location. On 2 July 2019 a total solar eclipse will draw a path through the sky over central Chile. The best place to view this event is at the vineyard-filled slopes of the Elqui Valley.
