Dark Sky Guides offers guided interpretive nighttime tours and stargazing opportunities in Waterton Lakes National Park, by providing tour participants with the chance to stargaze using quality telescopes, binoculars, and other stargazing equipment. The Dark Sky Guides are storytellers that deliver personable, memorable, interpretive tours that focus on showcasing the night sky, the moon and neighboring planets, deep sky objects like distant nebulae and star clusters, the Milky Way Galaxy, constellations, and even Aurora Borealis and nocturnal creatures. Ultimately, Dark Sky Guides encourage people to foster their own personal connection with both the night sky and Waterton Lakes National Park.

More About the Dark Sky Guides:

Dark Sky Guides Ltd. is owned and operated by the four Robinson Brothers, who were lucky to grow up in Waterton Lakes National Park. Over the years they have explored all areas of the National Park, both in daylight and after dark. As third-generation tourism service providers, sharing Waterton Park’s rich human- and natural history has always been a part of their lives.

Between the four of them, the Robinson Brothers officially have over 40 years of experience acting as tour guides in Waterton Lakes National Park. And over the years, the brothers have traveled to many destinations around the world, picking up best practices from other tour guides and companies across the planet.

Dark Sky Guides offer small, personalized tours that will open your eyes to a completely new area of Waterton Lakes National Park – the night sky above. The brothers hope to encourage every single tour participant to connect on a personal level with the National Park, in their own particular way.
