Exodus are offering the chance to witness the eclipse on the following trips in 2012.
Total Solar Eclipse Australia
A classic route designed to encompass the three icons of Australia: Sydney, Uluru and the Barrier Reef. Starting in Palm Cove you’ll have time to unwind and soak up the tropical warmth of North Queensland and witness the eclipse. Flying to Alice Springs you will then drive through the desert to wonderful Uluru, not only a beautiful sight but also a major site of Aboriginal culture. The tour then finishes in Sydney, considered by many to be the most beautiful city in the world.
Departure: From London, 15 days, 08 November - 22 November 2012 or Land only (start point: Palm Cove) 12 days, 10 November - 21 November 2012
Annular Solar Eclipse Western USA
We take a classic route through the greatest national parks of the Western USA to view this eclipse. Starting in San Francisco, the first park is the dramatic Yosemite. We continue on East into the desert and high plains around Las Vegas. We will walk in Zion and Bryce Canyon before the trip's highlight: at the staggering landscape of Monument Valley, we will watch the eclipse just before sunset. Well away from cities and their light polution, we can then watch the stars rise before retreating to sleep in a traditional Navajo hogan (tradional roundhouse) in the valley. The next day, we'll head onto the legendary Grand Canyon for two days exploration. Finally, we end the trip in Las Vegas, amidst the glitz and glare of the casinos.
Departure: From London, 15 days, 11 May - 25 May 2012 or Land only (start point: San Francisco) 14 days, 11 May - 24 May 2012
