RECOMMENDATIONS AND WARNINGS FOR VISITORS

We appreciate your interest in visiting the Teide Observatory (OT) and we hope that you enjoy your visit.

The Teide Observatory is not responsible for the difficulties or discomfort caused by not following these recommendations.

The arranged visits will only be carried out when the weather and the operating status of the telescopes permit. Due to adverse weather conditions, especially during winter, which may affect the safety of the roads leading to the Observatory (snow, ice, falling rocks) visits may be unexpectedly cancelled.

 

Before visiting us

Health and altitude

The Teide Observatory (TO) is located at an altitude of approximately 2,400 meters above sea level, an altitude at which oxygen diminishes. Groups will move about within the TO on gravel paths. For this reason, the visit is not recommended for people with general health problems (anaemia, breathing or heart problems, etc.). If you are not sure if you should visit, consult your doctor first.

The TO is not responsible for any health problems that can be caused by the altitude or by not following these recommendations and warnings.

The TO does not have medical assistance within its facilities.

Bear in mind that the closest hospital is approximately one and a half hours away by car.

If you show symptoms of dizziness, nausea, shortness of breath, ringing in your ears, plugged ears or headache during your visit, please let your guide know immediately.

Recommended equipment

  • Protect yourself from the sun. It’s recommended that you use hats, sunglasses and sunscreen.
  • Due to the low levels of humidity that are common in the TO, come prepared with sufficient liquid (water or juices) to prevent dehydration.
  • Bring comfortable clothes and adequate footwear (avoid sandals).
  • Bring some warm clothes in case the weather changes abruptly and to enter the interior of the telescopes.  
During the visit

What should I do when I arrive?

When you arrive at the TO, centre personnel will be waiting for you at the access gate to let you know what to do with the car or bus. Please always follow the instructions you receive.

Please do not forget to bring identification (ID card or passport) and a printout of your reservation to confirm access. If you are unable to produce identification and/or the booking confirmation, the TO/IAC does not guarantee your visit.

Warnings during the visit

For security reasons, proper operation and care of the environment, the TO asks you to closely follow the following rules during your visit:

  • Due to time limits and visit schedule constraints, the time to use the toilet is before the visit starts. Please leave the toilet as clean as you found it!
  • Please be respectful of the surroundings as the TO is located in a National Park. It is prohibited to:

-       Smoke or drink

-       Throw away rubbish except where indicated

-       Leave the established paths.

  • For your own safety, please remain with your assigned group at all times and follow the instructions given by the guide at all times.

Please bear in mind that you must have a sufficient knowledge of the language in which the visit is held in order to be able to correctly follow the explanations of the guide.

In the event that the guided visit of the Observatory cannot be held due to adverse weather conditions, its cost shall be reimbursed.

In the event that weather conditions impede or hinder proper visibility of the stars through solar telescopes, we will visit another nocturnal telescope instead.
