Six star gazing trips in locations across the world have been compiled by group adventure operator Exodus Travels.

They cover Canada, Canary Islands, Chile, New Zealand, South Africa and the UK Lake District.

The trips have been organised in a year when two privately-funded missions to the moon have been scheduled.

Prices lead in at £679 per person for a walking holiday in Cumbria in May rising to £6,199 to trek across both islands in New Zealand in December, including white water rafting, sea kayaking and glacier walking.
