Travel to Experience Stars and Skies

Transform the heavens into your own observatory. Live and learn the science of the stars and skies - and how we can protect their beauty for future generations.

The cool North of Finland, Greenland, Iceland, Scotland, Ireland, Norway, Sweden and the Faroe Islands offers a wealth of opportunities to experience a range of breath-taking natural phenomena, whilst learning the science behind them and understanding how the skies help shape civilisation.

The Aurora Borealis provide a perfect example of how science interacts with the soul. An exercise in particle physics, this scientific phenomenon uniquely moves observers and inspires storytelling, music, dance and poetry. 

Since the beginning of time, humans have been fascinated by the skies. Celestial navigation was recorded as early as 3000 BC by the ancient Minoans in Crete. The emergence of the dark skies movement illustrates our continued wonder at the skies above us.
