METEORITE HUNTING ADVENTURES
A personal favorite to the Meteorite Hunting Adventures team, and a frequent filming location for the Meteorite Men! Enjoy the wonder of, what we feel is, one of the most exciting locations of them all: the Atacama Desert. This Chilean desert is home to one of the most active strewnfields in the world that, to this day, can produce surprising amounts of meteorite finds.
Your experience will consist of guidance on how to find meteorites by some of the world's most prolific meteorite hunters in a part of the world that can produce unforeseen amounts meteorite finds. We will get you geared up for a hunt like no other! If you wish to learn to meteorite hunt in a closed environment, please see our upcoming training session in Arizona.
The Atacama Desert has been a location of choice for the two episodes of the TV series Meteorite Men
We are camping, please bring your own tent
Off-road, four-wheel-drive vehicles will be provided to traverse the desert
High-end metal detectors are not needed but are more than welcome during the hunt (or any level of metal detector)
The expedition is a intermediate level hunt but can be enjoyed by any level of meteorite hunter: novice or professional
