We invite you to join our Argentina Annular Solar Eclipse Adventure, with optional pre-trips to Easter Island or Peru & Machu Picchu.
Join us and explore the magnificence of Argentina, from the premiere city of Buenos Aires and historic La Plata to historic Puerto San Julian on the Atlantic Coast, and the thundering wonder of Iguazú Falls.
We will see the Annular Solar Eclipse just north of Puerto San Julian on October 2, 2024.
Starting in Buenos Aires, we will explore the city and have a special visit to the Galileo Galilei Planetarium in the historic Palermo district. The Planetario (as it is known) looks like a UFO, and also has a collection of meteorites from the north of Argentina. We'll be introduced to the southern night skies with briefing on the 2024 Annular Solar Eclipse
In Buenos Aires, we will explore the city and have a special visit to the Galileo Galilei Planetarium in the Parque Tres de Febrero. The Planetario (as it is known)looks like a UFO, and also has a collection of meteorites from the north of Argentina.We'll see the many displays inside and outside of the Planetario, followed by a introduction to the southern night skies and discussion of the 2020 Total Solar Eclipse.
At La Plata, we will visit the superb Natural History Museum which is the outgrowth of Francisco Moreno's collection of anthropological, fossil, and bone findings in the 1860's. At the entrance, we will be greeted by two statues of sabre-tooth cats, which were native to the Pampas of Argentina. Inside there are vast collections including dinosaur fossils from the Pampas.
Our flight to Rio Gallegos will take us over the Pampas. We will then drive along the Atlantic Coast to the historic Bay of Puerto San Julian, an important stopping point for Magellan, Sir Francis Drake, and Darwin on their historic voyages.
Our adventure will continue as we fly to Iguazú Falls National Park to stay two nights at the spectacular La Reserva Virgin Jungle Lodge, and see this utterly magnificent waterfall and park which has a profusion of tropical birdlife.
We will travel with Betchart naturalist Bob Nansen, popular leader of our Australia Total Solar Eclipse trip in 2023 and the Grand Tetons Eclipse trip in 2017.
We hope you will join us for this remarkable adventure to see the 2024 Annular Solar Eclipse.
