2020 solar eclipse in Patagonia

p>The warm light of a summer's afternoon will return briefly to night on 14 December, 2020, as a total solar eclipse blackens the skies above a narrow belt of land in Chile, Argentina and the islands of the Pacific Ocean.


Witnessing a total eclipse is a totally dramatic and other-worldly experience. Travel with us and we will position you within this narrow band offering you the rare opportunity and privilege to experience the phenomenon close to the town of Pucón in the lake district of Chilean Patagonia, where - clear skies permitting - the totality of the phenomenon is set to be seen at its best. Even if it is cloudy, the skies will morph into a sulky gloom.

While the intensity of the occurrence depends on the weather, the lake district will be one of the few readily-accessible locations across the globe to watch the moon position itself centrally in front of the sun. On Eclipse day you’ll travel  to observe the spectacle at one of the best locations.
