Travel Tips

The next solar eclipse on the way will be visible in Argentina on Dec. 14, 2020. While more than a year away and with various tours to choose from, now is actually a great time to plan for a Tropical Sails tour, especially if you’re planning on bringing astrology-intrigued kids along.


The Argentina Solar Eclipse Tour 2020 is an expertly guided tour and great option for your big family trip next year. And we mean big. With possibilities from an epic 11-day trip to add-on options, including days visiting Iguazu Falls, there’s a whole lot of vacation to be had.


The standard trip begins in Buenos Aires, where families and avid travelers explore local culture and historic landmarks on boat rides, enjoying authentic cuisine, vibrant nightlife filled with quintessential live entertainment, dancing and more — all before jetting off to Bariloche.

Next up, guests are treated to a private visit to Puerto Blest and Los Cantaros cascade to take in the region’s truly breathtaking natural beauty without the crowds. With the help of local experts, trek through national park trails with the kids and keep your eyes peeled for local wildlife. The tour showcases the region’s seemingly untouched natural beautiful and rugged landscape for a few days, while guests enjoy private tours and meals peppered in, before heading to San Martin De Los Andes for prime-time eclipse views.


Enjoy a private tour and full day at the Lanin Volcano and Huechulaufquen Lake, too, with a few days worth more in store.


Tropical Sails also offers a 2020 Solar Eclipse Tour Chile with Pucon and Patagonia, another great option for families with a little less time on land. This cruise is just non-stop views, exploration and incredible dining. For two weeks and about $5,000 a person, based on double occupancy, guests get the best of the region’s stunning vistas and local attractions by boat, some on foot and a fantastic eclipse viewing party. This special trip is worth planning for — and even one to save for. With ample time to pay, guests and families can make deposits by June 14, 2020, and pay the full balance by Sept. 14, 2020. Not a bad way to commit to plans.


Whichever your family’s speed, either way, either tour boasts an expertly planned, designed and choreographed tour to an already bucket-list destination.


Traveling for astrological occurrences can take some doing, but when it’s all said and done, it’s truly a once-in-lifetime, or blue moon, experience.
