When you are planning any holiday abroad, whether you want to sit on a beach, trek in the mountains or visit a city, location is going to be perhaps the most important consideration in making your decision. This is especially true when the team at Explorers plan their astronomical tours. Eclipses and aurorae are only visible from particular sites on the globe, and only occur at certain times. To see them the sky must also be clear.
Of course no-one can control the weather, but Eclipse holidays with Astronomy Tours are planned to be based wherever there is the best possible chance of having good weather on the day. While considerations of visibility are of paramount importance on all our eclipse trips, the intention is that you have an enjoyable and memorable trip wherever the eclipse is seen, so Explorers always choose interesting and worthwhile locations for their tours.
Location is also important when choosing a destination to see the northern lights. The Scandinavian countries are ideal to view the aurora as they are only a relatively short flight from the UK. On their Iceland holidays northern lights are active on most nights, and during the course of a week’s tour there is a good chance that there will be at least one evening where the sky will be visible, if not more. Iceland is also a very interesting and beautiful place to visit in its own right, so you are sure to have an enjoyable time whatever the variable Icelandic weather brings.
