FrontRunners: Sun Spot

Although it may seem as if no genuine firsts remain for adventurous travelers, in November 2003, TravelQuest International (928.445.7754, www.tq-international.com) will host the first tour to Antarctica that includes the viewing of a total solar eclipse. The price of the two-week trip will range from $35,000 to $46,500, depending on the number of people who participate.

Expedition members will fly from Punta Arenas, Chile, to Eclipse 1 base camp in Dronning Maud Land, Antarctica. On eclipse day, an airplane on standby will be ready to move you and the rest of the expedition to the optimum viewing location. With zero pollution, and the sun and moon hovering a mere 15 degrees above the horizon, you should be afforded unprecedented views of the wispy solar corona, making this a first that is certain to become frozen in time.
