Utah leads the world with nine International Dark Sky Parks. The International Dark Sky Association has said “An International Dark Sky Park is a land possessing an exceptional or distinguished quality of starry nights and a nocturnal environment that is specifically protected for its scientific, natural, educational, cultural heritage, and/or public enjoyment.”
As the sun sinks below the horizon the desert night sky awakens in a shining spectacle of stars that ignite the imagination. Is there anything more natural, more undisturbed by humanity, or more unchanging than the cosmos? In the stars the religious have looked for signs, the ancient have passed on their legends, and the explorers have found their way around the globe. Gazing into the infinity of space while immersed in the silent solitude of nature compels the mind into a state of wonder and amazement.
All Desert Solitude tours include the luxury camping experience in a location that enables you to immerse yourself in the heavenly wonders of the galaxy away from light pollution of large cities. Additionally, on a Desert Solitude tour the fun continues even after dark. Visiting Canyonlands with panoramic views of the starry skies or seeing the hoodoos of Bryce Canyon lit by a full moon are experiences we highly recommend. Let your guide know if you are interested in an adventure after dark.
