Full Moon Tours

2 hrs

Let the full moon light your outdoors adventure with us. Often people have restless sleeps during the full moon, so use a little of that energy and join us on a magical moon-lit excursion.

Full moon tours are unique adventures using natures natural led-light, all the better being outdoors and doing it outside of work. The world comes alive during nightly full moon tours; critters scurry, fungi and organisms glow, crepuscular animals come out to play, and many more moments occur.

Our full moon tours run five days every month, two days either side of - and including - the full moon, so it is not always officially full moon, but imperceptibly impressive.

When booking a Full Moon tour, please be mindful of the weather! Especially rain and cloud cover; or we won't see the full moon and be guided by its light!

Depending on the activity, we have selected a few places where the light polution is lowest. Check out the overview and itinerary for more information.

We go exploring at night under the guidance of the moons light. The world is a different place at night. We will educate you about the moon itself, the stars, darkness, the local places and much more!

It's OK, we will guide you along. We bring lanterns and torches too. Our endeavours are easy and simple, nothing is ever too demanding and you will be with other people.

It is safer than being in a vehichle. At night, one is more observant and aware with heightened senses, so it is generally safer!

We select the best staff for the job based on their skills, knolwedge and experiences. They will be an SNM staff member or we will bring in support from equally competent contractors. Sometimes we also bring in (semi)celebrity guests!
