Total Solar Eclipse Trips
Observing a total eclipse of the sun is an incomparable experience. Many people plan years in advance to travel to the location of a particular total solar eclipse offering either a special setting, high probability of clear skies, or predicted, special characteristics of the eclipse itself. Eclipse chasers – or umbraphiles – are an international community of enthusiasts who will often predictably convene by the thousands at chosen points in the Path of Totality. Thisis the linear path across a swath of the globe which experiences the maximum shadow of the moon as it occludes the sun. Of course, there is no guarantee that the best location to view an eclipse coincides with roads,accommodations or easily accessible viewing points. But our challenge is to get you there in spite of any obstacles.
We appreciate both the absolute fanatical determination of a veteran eclipse chasers to view from the perfect location, as well as the desire of merely adventurous travelers to see their first or next eclipse in optimal conditions with a guarantee of safety, competent leadership and reliable transport and accommodations. The total solar eclipse trips below represent our effort to provide the best viewing locations within the eclipse's path of totality combined with an itinerary and leadership to both interpret the eclipse event and the see something of the destination near the eclipse. Combine your eclipse trip with extensions to visit any nearby regions or countries. In some cases countries restrict eclipse viewers to sanctioned sites which usually coincide with favorable factors of eclipse duration and cloud cover probabilities. JOURNEYS solar eclipse trips and tours are typically restricted to groups of 15 persons or fewer and are likely to include both dedicated eclipse aficionados and first time viewers.
