The Faroe Islands have been awarded the highest rating for "environmental quality, sociological, and cultural integrity" by National Geographic. The fantastic landscape of small islands and green mountains are linked by modern undersea tunnels, bridges, and ferries.

Join Astronomy magazine March 14–23, 2015, to experience the spectacle of a total solar eclipse with this pristine scenery as a backdrop. The eclipse of March 20, 2015, will cross these unspoiled islands where the cliffs along the fjords are filled with more than 260 species of birds. The old Faroe houses, as their Norwegian Viking ancestors once built, are typically black with turfed roofs insulating against the Nordic weather.

Prior to traveling to the Faroe Islands, the eclipse tour begins with three nights in the moss-covered lava fields of Iceland, where travelers will experience many of nature’s grandeur with the aurora borealis, geysers, and some of the 15,000 waterfalls.

The tour includes:
  • Iceland, three days
    • Guided tours of waterfalls, lava fields, fjords, geysers, hot springs, and glaciers
    • Nightly aurora viewing
    • Relaxation in the Blue Lagoon
  • Faroe Islands, five days
    • Outdoor activities, including horseback riding, bird watching, diving, hiking, kayaking, cliff jumping, or rappelling
    • Cultural show with singing, storytelling, and dancing
    • Guided tour of the landscape of the islands
  • Astronomy lectures from David J. Eicher, editor of Astronomy magazine
  • Eclipse glasses
