Experience the Middle East in a whole new light…

Join fellow space tourism enthusiasts for an 8-day astronomy tour to Jordan. This beautiful Middle Eastern country is renowned for its safety and hospitality — plus some of the best stargazing you’ve ever seen. The goal for this tour is to help you get away from light polluted areas you might live in, explore a new part of the world, and challenge any assumptions you have about the Middle East and what it has to offer as a destination for space tourism and more.

Over the course of the itinerary, we’ll stay at some of the best astronomy-focused accommodations in the country, plus interact with astronomy groups and guides to help us make the most of the night sky. You’ll also see some of Jordan’s top sights – the Dead Sea, Wadi Rum, and Petra – by day, making this a perfect bucket list trip for space enthusiast travelers.

  • November 12-20, 2019
