We stayed for 7 days at a very nice hotel. We did many of the activities such as hot air ballooning. The Star Gazing trip is highly recommended.

Easy to get to by following the directions given when you book, your local astronomer will provide you will seating and a blanket on colder nights. Guests take turns viewing through a HUGE home-made telescope at the sky’s wonders visible that night. Hugely enjoyable.
