Astronomy Tours

Astronomy Tours

Part of the fun of astronomy is going places to see something you can’t see from home. We at Sky & Telescope have a passion for astronomy, and we want to share it with you in as many ways as possible — including bringing you with us on adventures around the world!

Sometimes we board a ship or fly to Africa to see a solar eclipse. Other times we travel to polar countries to see the northern lights. “Exciting destinations” isn’t just a buzz word when it comes to astronomy travel, because our aim is to take you to destinations that are thrilling both above and below the sky line. Here you’ll find information on our current vacation packages. Each trip has a Sky & Telescope editor traveling with you to answer your astronomy questions and make sure everything runs smoothly.

Clear skies and happy travels!
