EXPLORE THE SKY WITH US
When it comes to stellar star-gazing, the destination you choose is crucial. First of all, you need to be far away from the glow of city lights. This is absolutely fundamental. However, there can be considerable divergences between each destination.
Moreover, there exists many ways to star gaze. What would you prefer, Explorogist? A warm and cozy setting, a snowy mountain, or in the desert on a balmy night? At Explorogist, we’ve traveled the world, and here are our spots we highly recommend!
CHILE – SAN PEDRO DE ATACAMA DESERT
The small town of San Pedro de Atacama is located in one of the driest deserts in the world. The city lies at an average of 2,400 m; thus, be prepared, nights are cold during wintertime.
JORDAN – WADI RUM DESERT
In Wadi Rum desert, the horizon is dotted with craggy canyons and orange sand. You’ll feel like you are watching the stars from the moon, and this is somewhat surreal. It is integrated into our Explorogist’s trip: a night in a luxury camping in isolated sites. The objective? Enjoy an incredibly fantastic view of the Milky Way.
MOROCCO – SAHARA DESERT
As a starting point for visiting the Sahara Desert, Merzouga is a small oasis town in Morocco. One of Morocco’s most extensive dunes can be reached by camel ride or by jeep. You will not forget your way to reach the dunes; this is simply going to be epic.
These dunes reach heights of around 30m, and being there for the sunset is something unforgettable. Spend a night there, listen to Berber music, drink Moroccan mint tea, and let the sky shine of all its stars.
