We relish extraordinary, unconventional tours and unusual activities. And one of them is being able to experience an Eclipse in Antarctica! For many, a solar eclipse is a once-in-a-lifetime experience. So why not go to the best places to witness such an impressive event?
When is the next one?
The next Solar Eclipse visible in South America will happen the 14th of December 2020. We suggest a two-day itinerary, that we can easily add to your South American holiday plans. We’ll take you to a remote property, so you can experience this incredible event in a safe and comfortable way. The eclipse will be best viewed from parts of Chile that are generally not visited, so it is a great way to explore the beautiful countryside. 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 none other than Antarctica. Yes, we said Antarctica. What a magnificent chance to combine two spectacular natural wonders!
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 literally be 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.
