9 Best trips for stargazing

Love looking up at the stars above? With so many destinations providing the perfect spots to admire the night sky, we've gathered 9 of our best trips for stargazing.


Mountains, Deserts and Coasts of Oman

While you’re exploring Oman, you’ll spend two nights camping beneath the starry skies. The Wahiba Sands desert camping promises some truly spectacular views of the stars while you share stories around the fire. Later on in the trip, as you trek the Hajar Mountains, you’ll once again experience incredible skies at 2,200m on Salma Plateau. Meteor showers are a common sight to see in Oman, so keep your eyes peeled!

Family Botswana and Zambia Safari Holiday

During a Botswana and Zambia Safari holiday, you’ll settle into a private houseboat on the Okavango River. During the day it makes a perfect spot for bird watching and observing wildlife, but as night falls, make sure to look up at the stars above. Thanks to the peaceful, remote location, there’s little light pollution to get in the way of stargazing - just pull up a chair on deck and enjoy.

Peru In Depth and the Inca Trail

Embark on an all-encompassing journey of Peru, and you’ll be treated to stunning night skies along the way.

Meanwhile on Taquile Island, with no light pollution to get in the way, you’ll enjoy night skies bright enough to read a book by.

Maldive Dhoni Cruise

On our Maldive Dhoni Cruise you’ll be living aboard a traditional dhoni boat, docking away from the islands each day for snorkelling in crystal clear waters. With the busier islands and tourist spots well out of the way, get comfy on the deck and sleep out under the stars in this tropical paradise, with just the gentle lapping of waves to lull you to sleep.

Festivals of Bhutan

Bhutan’s small population means compact towns and cities with very little light pollution. Throw the spectacular Himalayan mountain peaks into the mix and you’ve got the perfect backdrop for stargazing. While you’ll have plenty to keep you busy during this discovery adventure, you can spend relaxed evenings soaking up the night skies, and sharing stories of your day.

Iceland Winter Adventure

As you discover the rugged volcanoes and glaciers of Iceland, exploring Thingvellir National Park along the way, make sure to pause and admire the vast sky above. In Egilsstadir we’ll stay at the Wilderness Centre, a 1940s restored farmhouse turned into a living museum. It’s a front row seat to an expanse of stars thanks to the remote location, and you may even be lucky enough to spot the Northern Lights.

Walking in the Azores

While Walking in the Azores you’ll visit five picturesque and unspoilt islands. Though each island is a natural haven for walkers, Flores Island in particular is a lesser-visited island far from tourist crowds - the furthest west of the islands, Flores is 1,400km from the busy Portuguese mainland. Without light or sound pollution, there’s nothing quite like a spot of stargazing here after a scenic day of walking through the islands' beautiful wildflowers.
