Get illuminated at The Grand Canyon Star Party!

Turn down the lights and get ready to party! At the Grand Canyon Star Party and accompanying holiday tour, you’ll meet astronomers, discover the origins of the universe and explore America’s eighth wonder and Meteor Crater!

You know how on a bus tour they say "If you look to your left you’ll see some old building where American String Cheese was invented as long ago as 1976"?

Imagine hearing this instead: “Glance down and you will see some of the oldest exposed rocks on our planet. Glance up and you will behold the origins of our universe.”


You’ve just arrived at the Grand Canyon Star Party!

This out-of-this-world holiday tour blasts off in Flagstaff, AZ where you’ll discover the origins of the universe at Lowell Observatory and its 40 high-powered telescopes. At Meteor Crater you’ll visit a mile-wide, fifty thousand-year-old canyon and learn about Humans in Space as the site was used by NASA for training astronauts for the moon landing!


From Flagstaff, it’s on to America’s finest landmark and event; The Grand Canyon Star Party. There, on the south rim, you’ll visit the Desert View Watchtower for lessons from your expert astronomers, NASA alumni Nadine Barlow and David Cole. The next day, you’ll learn about the geology of this natural wonder on walks to the canyon's most spectacular viewpoints.

This unmissable experience means from the nanosecond you arrive, everything is taken care of for you meaning it's perfect for young and old. It also includes 5 nights accommodation, 13 meals, 6 expert-led lectures, 7 expert-led field trips and is guaranteed to blow your mind.


In short:

  • Discover secrets of the universe at Lovell Observatory
