Tour Details


Exact dates to be confirmed by Summer 2025. More information to come.

Please note that details regarding this tour are still being developed, but do not let that dissuade you from reserving your spot to witness this incredible phenomenon. Guarantee your spot by reserving today!


What kind of eclipse is this? Just to be clear, this is an annular eclipse.  That is, the Moon is farther away than normal from the Earth and it will not completely cover the Sun. At central eclipse there will be a complete ring of sunlight surrounding the Moon. Some 94% of the Sun’s disc will be covered. The eclipse path width is 261km/162miles and we just happen to be lucky enough to get underneath the Moon’s shadow on Easter Island. The sky will not get completely dark but don’t let that dissuade you. It can be a photographic dream to capture Baily’s Beads (lunar mountains interacting with the Sun’s limb) at the start and again at the end of the eclipse.  For those engaged in extreme photography it may even be possible capture the inner corona or a prominence, though doing this is not for the faint of heart.  For your safety any photography and visual observation must be carried out at ALL TIMES with a proper neutral density filter. We will be providing ‘partial eclipse glasses’ to everyone.
