Astronomy Magazine will cosponsor a 2019 eclipse tour to Chile and Peru along with TravelQuest International.

If you are ready for more eclipse chasing on the back end of this year’s Great American Eclipse, consider going with Astronomy’s editors to see the next big eclipse — in Chile! Along with our travel partner, TravelQuest International, Astronomy Magazine will host a tour to see the July 2, 2019, total solar eclipse. Surrounded by an amazing Chilean landscape, we will bask in 2 minutes 15 seconds of totality! How can you not get motivated for this incredible journey? 

The northbound trip will last from June 30–July 10, with an offered extension for July 11–14 as well. Beyond the Chilean eclipse, we’ll spend lots of time in Peru visiting amazing wonders. We’ll start out at La Serena, Chile, for a rest and welcome dinner post travel. The following day we’ll explore La Serena, Chile’s second oldest city, with its beautiful beaches and splendid markets and shops. Following the eclipse on the 2d, we’ll travel to Cuzco, Peru, and then will spend the following day at one of the world’s great archaeological sites, Machu Picchu, the legendary Inca city in the sky. What an incredible day this will be! 

After staying overnight at high altitude, the trip then rolls on with more exploration of Machu Picchu, visit more archaeological sites nearby, and then a return to Cuzco. We then explore the Incan capital city at length, with fantastic adventures awaiting us there, along with opportunities to explore and shop. Next, we travel to Lima and explore the city’s historic central square and the UNESCO World Heritage Site making up its historic district. We then get ready to travel homeward, or go on the extension to see the fabled, and amazing, Nazca Lines. 

What an adventure!!
