Description

This is a perfect excursion for astronomy lovers. 

 

You will start the tour at the Teide Observatory, where you will do a guided tour. There, your Starlight guide (specialist in the observation of the night sky) will explain the importance of the Canary sky, the telescopes of the observatory and the different projects of the Astrophysics Institute of the Canary Islands. You will also enjoy the sun as never before, since you can observe its spots and flares through the telescope.

 

You will see the sunset from the Observatory, a unique spectacle in which the sun hides behind El Teide. A range of colors will adorn the views of the volcano and the ocean.

 

At night, we will make a stop to eat (optional, not included in the price).

 

At the end of the dinner we will go to the base of the Teide's Cable Car and, far from the light pollution of urban areas, you will discover the secrets of the sky in an astronomical observation with the naked eye and with a long-range telescope. Did you know that from El Teide you can see 83 of the 88 constellations officially recognized?

 

You will discover stars, planets, galaxies and clusters as you have never imagined, while your Starlight guide teaches you the constellations, the celestial map and provides you with interesting information about the objects you observe. Marvel at the immensity of the universe and live an experience without equal, in one of the most visited national parks in the world.
