Science tourism is all about combining travel, science and learning to give you the best experience. So much of travelling is about seeing new things. Science tourism helps you understand them. It’s outdoor learning at its best, led by locals who are passionate about their subject.
Seeing a whale up close, observing its behaviour and understanding its feeding patterns, migratory routes and predators is a magical experience. An experience that inspires a desire to conserve the whale’s environment – whether by reducing plastics use, choosing small eco-friendly boat tours, or campaigning to address climate change. This is the potential of science tourism; it creates natural stewards and ambassadors for our environment. And it's not all about whales. It can be cultural traditions, glaciers, dark skies and more.
Science tourism offers a huge range of experiences from day trips to weekend breaks and extended holidays. Simply pick a destination or area of interest and see what's available. We're adding new adventures all the time.
To enrich your travel experience, just add science.
