Real star sightings are growing rare each passing day due to electrified terrestrial world. This is leading the travelers to arrange trips that are specifically designed to gaze at the stars and hope to engage in such activities that link them to the most distant objects in the sky.

The night sky gazing tourism has gained momentum to escape the light pollution that dims night time shows. According to the reviews on, this trend of specialized trips are bound to increase in this new decade. More people are now booking trips with intentions to view stars and northern lights from Norwegian cruises, stay at a hotel in Namibia that has beds and excursions in Chile’s dark Atacama Desert. They have astronomers on board for the cruises. Or they have another option to drive north in Minnesota.

If people are looking for slow travel, taking trains are the best option. Europe has rail lines crisscrossing the continent that makes travel by train easy. Though there aren’t much options like in Europe, Amtrak can get travelers from the Twin Cities to Seattle, New York City, New Orleans and other top spots.

According to the 2019 North American Camping Report of the Kampgrounds of America, more than 7.2 million households in the U.S. have started camping which has seen tremendous growth over the last five years. A total of 78.8 million families, most of them millennials, have headed out to the woods for camping in the recent past.

This will only see a rise at the cost to have a camping tour in the woods gazing at the stars in an inexpensive affair. The cost to reserve a campsite at Minnesota state parks starts at $16 per night. Research has shown that sleeping in the woods and in open under the sky reduces our blood pressure and helps with the growth of overall health.
