Astronomical Tours

Astronomy may provide the reason to travel to far flung destinations but the adventure needn’t stop there. At Explorers we design tours to enjoy the astronomy and also provide the opportunity to explore countries, see wondrous sights and meet interesting new people.     

Most of our tours are based around astronomical events such as total eclipses that are as awe-inspiring as anything in nature and can be enjoyed by a whole group of people at the same time, or meteor showers, such as the Perseids. For many the group camaraderie at such events as athe northern lights, can make the experience all the more wonderful.

A key feature of our planning is thorough research. Both by reviewing historical climate data and by visiting the countries we select the best viewing locations, optimizing the likelihood of clear, dark skies.

For all the events we have a range of itineraries that allow you to witness the astronomical spectacle from sites with the best views and take in a variety of the country's highlights.

In addition, for those who want to take an adventure holiday with a twist, we offer stargazing trips to Morocco, Jordan and Egypt. On these we mix day time activities, such as sandboarding and exploring historical monuments, with two or three star gazing nights with one of our astronomy experts.

On all our tours, you'll be accompanied by an expert astronomer who will bring the skies to life.
