Stargazing & Northern Lights Tours
Don't forget to look up!
Nothing quite compares to witnessing the colourful swathes of the Northern Lights as they bathe the night sky. Scientifically known as the Aurora Borealis, after the Roman goddess of dawn, this incredible light show graces the skies of the north and south poles during the depths of winter. Electrically-charged solar particles collide miles above the planet to create dancing sheets of colour from neon green to vivid purple in an ethereal display of multi-coloured lights.
Escape the bright lights of the city and venture into the darkness of some of northern Europe's most spectacular landscapes for a glimpse of this incredible natural event on tour with us.
Our range of stargazing tours also include dedicated trips to Jordan and Morocco to watch the Perseids and Geminids meteor showers, as well as specially curated tours to Argentina and Antarctica for the upcoming total solar eclipses in December 2020 and 2021.
