We have launched a programme of astronomically themed holidays that will open up the universe to you. By day we will admire the wildlife and landscapes of the natural world, but by night our attention will be drawn to the celestial realms. Whilst some tours are arranged around a particular event such an eclipse, others will take you to regions of the world where the truly dark skies can be enjoyed. A lot of careful planning and experience goes into operating these tours: to optimise the viewing we draw upon historical weather data and consider factors such as altitude and the phase of the moon.
With our Chilean Eclipse itineraries almost full and we have a fantastic new tour to Southern India to witness an annual eclipse on Boxing Day 2019. Elephants, Sloth Bears and leopards are frequently sighted and there is a chance of seeing Tiger.
On each of our ‘Astronomy Holidays’ we will aim to offer the following:
- Private vehicles
- Comfortable hotels
- Accompanying astronomy expert for all or part of the tour
- Live Planetarium demonstrations

"Looking to the skies can reward us with some of the most captivating views in nature. The richness of the Milky Way set against a jet-black sky, the rippling curtains of the Northern Lights over the Arctic or the astonishing spectacle of a total solar eclipse are sights that live long in the memory."
