There are so many celestial wonders to admire and so many locations in the world to enjoy them from. For astronomy lovers especially, selecting a site to catch the breathtaking events, can transform the experience into a memory of a lifetime.
Supermoon is a term used to describe the full moon that occurs in perigee - when the moon is closer to the earth. As a result, the moon appears brighter and bigger than full moons.
Qatar is a fantastic place to admire the magnificent night sky, and offers unlimited photo opportunities for astro-aficionados.
The country marks the epic event with a new and bespoke range of astro-tourism experiences, that are soon going to be available. Inspired by the starry skies of the Qatari desert, these astronomy-themed vacations have been curated for visitors to enjoy when borders re-open.
New itineraries are designed, and will be soon available, to accommodate all travellers’ needs, from moon-lit camel safari and stargazing to dinner at the spectacular Torch 360 restaurant, which offers panoramic views of the Doha skyline. Moreover, travellers can enjoy a BBQ dining experience by the campfire and a stay at the Regency Sealine Camp. Modern luxury meets authentic Arabian style, overlooking Khor al Adaid, also known as the Inland Sea, which is a recognised UNESCO World Heritage Site – where the sea meets the desert.

Qatar is the perfect spot for astronomy enthusiasts and an ideal location for an unforgettable travel experience. Star and moon gazers will admire breathtaking night sky views and the glory of the Qatari desert.
