CHILE EXPEDITION DETAILS
November (specific date TBD) 2022
Let's get you up to speed!
This document contains some basic information about your upcoming Meteorite Hunting Adventures expedition to Chile. Further details will be included in the expedition agreement, which we urge you to review carefully. Please call or email us if you have any questions.
This expedition costs $3,500 (USD 3500) per person. This can be paid either directly through this website or can be negotiated in person or via email or call. A $500 deposit is required to secure spots in our limited slots. The remaining balance must be paid in full one week before your expedition begins.
DATE AND AIRFARE
Official expedition dates will be provided soon. Meteorite Hunting Adventures does not cover airfare.
Your package fee includes hotel accommodations throughout the stay with running water and air conditioning. We will return every night near sunset.
Participants are responsible for their own food and packing their own lunch during the day. Before the expedition formally begins, we will make a trip to a supermarket so each participant can purchase their own food for the entire trip. Continental breakfast may be available at the hotel.
Meteorite Hunting Adventures will provide vehicles for entering and exiting the strewnfield/hunting area; the initial trip to a supermarket; and transport to and from the hotel and from the airport. Meteorite Hunting Adventures cannot guarantee specific trips to restaurants for evening meals with our vehicles, so participants should be prepared to take taxis, rent their own vehicles for the trip, and/or make other personal accommodations for personal excursions. Vehicles in the strewnfield/hunting area are intended for transportation around the strewnfield/hunting area and are not specifically for hunting purposes.
SECURITY & SAFETY
The desert itself is relatively safe, as it is devoid of most animals and not near borders or known areas of conflict. The terrain is fairly safe.
EXPERIENCE LEVEL AND DIFFICULTY
The Chile expedition is a relatively easy hunt and will not require heavy equipment. However, participants should be prepared for long walks and we recommend that you condition yourself physically prior to the expedition so you can comfortably walk a few miles (our October training is a great time to test your skills). If you are not able to comfortably walk that distance, we strongly recommend renting your own vehicle for transportation. Anyone of any experience level, new or veteran, can participate in this hunt.
WHAT TO BRING
Two pairs of comfortable shoes. Closed-toe not required
Lightweight, long-sleeved clothes
Sweater or light jacket
Extra battery for personal electronics
Extra charging cables for electronics
(Strongly suggested) Small, lightweight metal detector. We recommend the Minelab series
