New Mexico, with its dry climate and exceptionally clear skies, has long attracted both professional astronomers and passionate stargazers. Exploring the state’s spectacular desert landscapes and lively arts communities steeped in the heritage of the Pueblo people, you can see why its official nickname is “Land of Enchantment” – and also why we’ve chosen this spectacular corner of the Southwest for our newest TravelQuest adventure, a 10-day trip showcasing the close to 5-minute annular solar eclipse on October 14, 2023.
If you’re keen for even more Southwestern scenery and star-filled skies, our eight-day add-on trip to Arizona includes visits to the Lowell Observatory in Flagstaff, Arizona; the extraordinary Barring Meteor Crater; Kitt Peak National Observatory and the Grand Canyon.
