On 2 July 2019, a small strip of northern Chile will witness a rare and incredible phenomenon, a total solar eclipse. Just before sunset, the moon will pass between the sun and the earth, blocking the sun completely for 2 minutes in a spectacular display. One of the best places to view the eclipse will be the dramatic Elqui Valley. Thanks to its altitude and clear skies, this is one of the premier spots in the world to star-gaze, hosting many international observatories, so what better place to view a total solar eclipse! The valley is also a wine region and the home of traditional Chilean tipple Pisco, so you know there’s plenty of lovely things to drink whilst eclipse viewing.
What better way to experience it than on a Wendy Wu tour?
