Chile - Atacama and Easter Island: Mysteries of the Heavens and Earth with Bob McDonald

Mark a special beginning to a new year with a trip you will always remember. On New Year’s Eve, the Atacama Desert will provide you with one of our planet’s best views of pristine night skies and gleaming stars. Follow that by exploring one of the world’s great mysteries, the world famous huge Moai statues of Easter Island (Rapa Nui). The trip will be a first class experience for the mind, the soul and, this being Chile, for the body, with great wine and seafood.

Bob McDonald, as our Resource Person, will take us behind the scenes at the remarkable high altitude telescopes that are probing the deepest reaches of space. He will explain how they work and what they are searching for as only the host of CBC Quirks & Quarks can – making it fun and meaningful.

The trip starts and ends in Chile’s capital, Santiago, with its important museums, varied architecture and vibrant culture. We will also visit Valparaiso, a thriving seaport with a growing arts community and world famous Chilean vineyards.
