Visit the world's largest solar observatory and observe the stars on Teide with long-range telescopes. This is a perfect excursion for astronomy lovers.

Description of the experience

You will start the tour at the Teide Observatory, where you will have a guided tour in the afternoon. There, your Starlight guide (specialist in night sky observation) will explain the importance of the Canarian sky, the telescopes of the observatory and the different projects of the Instituto de Astrofísica de Canarias. You will also enjoy the sun as never before, since you will be able to observe its spots and flares through the telescope.

You will see the sunset from the Observatory itself, a unique spectacle in which the sun sets behind El Teide. An array of colors will adorn the views of the volcano and the ocean.

Once at night we will go to the base of the Teide Cable Car and, away from the light pollution of urban areas, you will discover the secrets of the sky in the astronomical observation with the naked eye and a long-range telescope. From El Teide you can see 83 of the 88 officially recognized constellations.

You will discover stars, planets, galaxies and clusters as you had never imagined, while your Starlight guide shows 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 unparalleled experience in one of the most visited national parks in the world.

It also includes a stop for a snack. You choose whether you bring your own snack, use the cable car vending machines or buy the optional picnic along with your Astronomic Tour with visit to the Teide Observatory.
