Solar eclipse over the antarctic landscape

Don’t miss the next Eclipse!

August 15, 2019

We relish the extraordinary, unconventional tours and unusual activities. And one of them is being able to experience an Eclipse in Antarctica! At Contours Travel we know that an event like this one is not ordinary. So why not go to the best places to witness such an impressive experience?

When is the next one?

The next Solar Eclipse visible in South America will happen the 14th of December 2020, and we suggest a two-day itinerary, that we can add up easily in your holiday plans, to Valdivia. We can recommend the best accommodation that will suit your request. Our land operators will offer the technology to experience a better sighting of the cosmic event. The eclipse will be visible in some areas of the world that are generally not visited, so it is a great way to explore the beautiful countryside in Chile. Valdivia is in the lush green area of Los Lagos region of Chile. This city is home to history, culture and delicious food and drink. It’s the perfect way to start an itinerary focused on the lakes district and explore south towards Patagonia.

If you want to get even more unconventional

We have another two extraordinary opportunities to see these events.  On December the 4th, 2021, you can view a total solar eclipse in nonetheless Antarctica. Yes, we said Antarctica. It is not only a once in a lifetime experience, but one that is most likely not to be repeated in many, many years!

The Hondius cruise ship will position themselves in the centre of the moon shadow at the edge of the sea ice in the Weddell Sea; you will be literally underneath the astronomical happening. But that’s not all; you will also enjoy all the adventure that Antarctica provides on this 20-day itinerary!

Want to top that experience?

Yes, you can! Not only by enjoying the Antarctic landscapes, wildlife spottings, adventure activities and cosmic events, you can also make it an educational experience! Onboard the Greg Mortimer, the Solar Eclipse in Antarctica itinerary will include lectures from NASA experts. To see a total solar eclipse in Antarctica is in itself extraordinary, but to also be guided by a NASA astronomer is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity!

There is no itinerary like this one to experience this cosmic event. But we can always suggest other opportunities to experience this fascinating moment, we will make sure you have a once-in-a-lifetime experience in Latin America and Antarctica. Call us today to tailor your trip including the Solar Eclipse!
