10 tips for planning your 2026 solar eclipse trip


Are you ready for the next total solar eclipse? As soon as the April 2024, eclipse across North America was over, eclipse chasers turned their attention to planning for the next one, which will be on Aug. 12, 2026.  

It will be the first total solar eclipse visible from Europe since 2015 and the first in mainland Europe since 1999. However, only five countries will experience totality — when the moon’s shadow completely blocks the sun’s face — on Aug. 12, 2026. That day, the sun will rise totally eclipsed from a remote part of Siberia in Russia before the moon’s umbra moves across eastern Greenland, western Iceland and northern Spain, clipping a tiny part of northeastern Portugal.
