On Dec. 14, 2020, join UCLA alumni and friends in witnessing a rare cosmic event — a total solar eclipse in Argentina’s Patagonian Lake District, known for its sapphire lakes, lush forests and sensational views of the snowcapped Andes. In the company of Jean-Luc Margot, professor and chair of the Department of Earth, Planetary, and Space Sciences, UCLA Alumni travelers will experience the eclipse outside San Martín de los Andes, directly along the path of the totality.

If you’re looking for something in the spring, spend two weeks (Apr. 29 to May 11, 2020) following the footsteps of Easy Company, the famed World War II parachute regiment, through Europe. Led by historians and curators from The National WWII Museum, you will tour the hedgerows of Normandy, “Hell’s Highway” in the Netherlands and the foxholes surrounding Bastogne before arriving atop the Eagle’s Nest in Germany. Imagine yourself meeting the people of Cuba, while soaking in the vintage architecture and sumptuous flavors of Havana next February. Or, in March, you can get a firsthand view of the finches and iguanas that sparked Charles Darwin’s revolutionary insights.

With UCLA Alumni Travel, 2020 will be the year that you see the world, experiencing vibrant culture and natural beauty in the company of fellow Bruins. Act now to reserve your spot.
