Astro Night Photography Tour

The Astro Night Photograph Tour is a small group tour with a focus on night photography. This tour will take you to some of Utah’s Dark Sky areas, including three of the state’s national parks. An experienced photographer will lead nightly photo sessions, teaching you the techniques you need to capture stunning photos of the Milky Way.

The Details

The Astro Night Photography Tour is a five-night, six-day tour with space for just eight guests. This tour is $5,995 per person for double occupancy or $6,750 for single occupancy. If you’d like to book this tour for a specific group size, give us a call at (435) 940-4212 for a personal quote.

Like all of our Utah tour packages and other vacation options, the price of this tour includes your accommodation, all lunches and dinners, transportation, and entrance into the national parks that you’ll visit. This special tour also includes an experienced astrophotography guide, red light headlamps, and photo review sessions.

The only additional costs that guests are responsible for are airfare, gratuity for guides, hotel incidentals, breakfasts, and their own tripods and photography gear.

The Photographer

Each of our Utah vacation packages and other tours are led by an experienced guide. Our guides are a big part of what makes our tours so special. Whether you are looking for a recommendation for a hike or want to learn more about the history of a national park, our guides are there to help.

The Astro Night Photography Tour features a special guide. Kevin Floerke is an adventure photographer, filmmaker, and artist from Sedona, Arizona. His specialty is long-exposure astrophotography, as well as light-painting and aerial photography and video. Floerke has had his work published in a number of prestigious publications, including The Guardian, BBC Travel, and the Smithsonian Institute’s National Museum for the American Indian.

Floerke originally trained as an archaeologist. He has traveled the world photographing incredible destinations, including remote expeditions into the desert southwest and the Inca Road System. On this tour, he’ll bring his skills, experiences, and expertise as he leads guided photography sessions to help you capture your own incredible photographs of the night sky above several national parks in Utah.

Bryce Canyon, Capitol Reef, and Zion National Park Tours

In addition to nightly photography sessions, this Utah tour package includes adventures in three of Utah’s Mighty 5 national parks. 

You’ll start your adventure in Zion National Park. While this package doesn’t include the extensive Zion park tours that you’ll find on some of our other options, like The Mighty 5 Scheduled Departure Tour, you’ll still get a chance to see this popular park’s famous peaks. You’ll end your very first day of this Utah vacation package at this park, and enjoy your very first photography session nearby.

Next up is Bryce Canyon National Park. Spend the day marveling at the towering hoodoos and listening to the wind as it ripples through the natural amphitheater.

The last stop on this tour is Capitol Reef National Park. This national park’s landscape has been formed by the shifting Waterpocket Fold, a natural wrinkle in the Earth’s surface. Just like Bryce Canyon, this is another International Dark Sky Park—and come nightfall, you’ll be enjoying another incredible photography session.
