Project Greenland / Iceland / Spain
Total Solar Eclipse - August 2026
Sunrise on the 12th August 2026 will see the start of that year’s total solar eclipse in northern Siberia but as the shadow crosses the North Pole it is likely to progress unwatched until it travels across Greenland.
Scoresby Sound fjord, an inland sea of vast icebergs on Greenland’s east coast sits directly on the centreline of the eclipse track where our first group will be waiting to observe this event. By midday the shadow reaches a remote land of volcanoes and waterfalls in Snæfells Glacier National Park on Iceland's west coast. This provides the location of our second observation site. The shadow will then cross the Atlantic Ocean until it reaches the Bay of Biscay on Spain’s northern coast late in the afternoon and our third observation site will be on the cliff tops of this rugged coast. The dry central regions of Spain offer very promising prospects of a clear sky and a sunset eclipse. Our fourth observing location will be in this region, observing from the ramparts of a magnificent castle, and we will also offer fascinating tours of classic Spain including Barcelona, Cordoba, Seville, Bilbao, Valencia and Madrid.
