5 Stargazing Hotspots Around The World

Stars, moons and the sky: it's hard to look at a map of space and not feel extremely tiny

Stargazing can happen in many forms, and each one of them is equally as fun and enlightening. From looking at the sky as a child to using professional gear at an observatory, stargazing is always a mind-blowing activity that will please all sorts.

1. Atacama Desert, Chile

Normally people wouldn't want to enjoy the conditions this desert is known for - it's beyond bone dry, incredibly away from civilization, and located at a particularly unsettling altitude. For sky gazing however, these conditions are perfect. While the whole desert presents a great sight above, it's Paramal Observatory that takes the cake. It is simply the world's largest telescope, and if it is located there then you should follow its lead.

You can enjoy the Atacama stargazing scene in three different ways: booking a hotel by yourself, camping it out or getting a ready-to-go package - QuasarChile offers you a great range of astronomy-centered packages throughout the Atacama.

2. Yangtze River Valley, China

History probably speaks better than me or you here: the Chinese have been keeping meticulous track of eclipses for thousands of years, and Beijing is home to one of the world's first observatories, dated from the 15th century under the Ming dynasty. Most urban areas in China are known for their remarkably poor visibility and pollution records, but this valley is an exception that is beyond pleasant.

Here you'll enjoy a nice mix of great clear skies, and beautiful Chinese landscapes.

3. Tuscany

Did you ever wonder how did Galilleo feel when he first ventured into exploring the skies? In Tuscany, you can get a perfect combination of the atmosphere and the very same skies. By day, you can have a great time with the rolling hills of the city and its rich history.

At night, you can take out your telescope and observe the very same phenomena Galilleo Gallilei studied, from the same spot. Sun spots, moon craters, Jupiter's moons... Could it get any better?

4. Hawaii

Geography is your friend: Hawaii is over 2,300 miles away continental USA, and all the industrial mess that's tied to it. The skies are clear and the volcanic peaks dot the landscape all over - there's a reason why it's become one of the most popular astronomy destinations in the world.

You can spot the Northern Hemisphere classics with a stunning clarity here, including Orion and the Milky Way. Astro Tours Hawaii offers guided tours where they show you the 'sweet spots' in Hawaii.

5. Kiruna

Our northernmost entry, this small city in the North of Sweden offers a slightly different attraction. Kiruna is home to an intense sky marked by the aurora borealis, known popularly as the Northern lights, and its location grants you the clear unpolluted skies that are required for an amazing experience. When visiting during winter, make sure you try out the Ice Hotel - a hotel rebuilt every year differently, and made solely of ice.

→ Look stunning while you visit Kiruna with these fine accessories!
