See the 2015 eclipse from the ocean waves


With the next total solar eclipse juts two years away, holidays to see the spectacular natural site are already going like hot cakes. But you can still bag a deal.

Cruise company Eclipse of the Century is offering £100 discount on a cruise to see the 2015 Total Solar Eclipse (near the Faroe Islands) and the Northern Lights, with ‘Sky at Night’ presenter, Chris Lintott (above).

The cruise now costs just £1,699pp – a discount of £10, while bookings before the end of this month get £250 to spend on board.

The trip departs on the Boudicca from Southampton March 8-24, 2015 and guests will have the opportunity to explore various ports of call along the western coast of Norway including Alesund, Tromso  and Alta, the northernmost city in the world. Located firmly within the arctic circle, it is also a great place to view the Northern Lights.

The trip will then visit Leknes and Norway’s Lofoten Islands. The wild landscape of jagged peaks, cliffs and bright-white sandy beaches makes the area one of the most picturesque in Norway. Finally, the cruise will visit Tórshavn in the Faroe Islands.

The Total Solar Eclipse will take place on 20 March, 2015 and the event will be the last one visible from Europe until 2026.
