Description

Make your dream a reality and enjoy the Universe in a professional way in one of the best places in the world to do so: on Mount Teide.

Certified astronomical guides will wait for you to unravel the mysteries of the Universe for you using professional telescopes, which will allow you to see up close and for your own eyes those fascinating celestial objects that you have longed to see for many years, under the pure and clear sky of the Teide National Park, where it is possible to observe 83 of the 88 officially recognised constellations and where, in the summertime, you can enjoy perfect visibility of the Milky Way.

A fascinating astronomical observation on Teide to enjoy the most starry side of Tenerife

Have you always wondered what star or celestial object is that shiny point, either big or small, that you can see in the sky?

Our Starlight guides will clear all your doubts as they will be there to unravel the mysteries of the Universe for you.

Do you find it fascinating that ancient civilisations oriented themselves using the stars? Have you always wanted to be able to do it as well?

Our guides will show you how to guide yourself thanks to the sky. Furthermore, if Greek mythology and constellations have always been your passions, during the astronomical observation on Teide you will enjoy discerning the elements of Hellenic mythology, which are hidden behind the constellations and the relationship between them.

Use our state-of-the-art telescopes to discover planets, galaxies or clusters as you have always dreamt of doing, and stargaze in one of the three best places on Earth to do it.

Not only will you be able to use these machines to take a tour through the night’s most interesting celestial objects but also our monitors will provide you with relevant information about the objects that you will see through the lens.

Get closer to the stars with professional telescopes

Our astronomical observation on Teide, which includes professional telescopes, is held in the car park next to the Cable Car base station.

We are sure that the astronomical instrumentation that you will have at your disposal, along with the quality and transparency of the sky over the Teide National Park in Tenerife, away from the light pollution produced by big cities, will give you a unique experience, which will feel as if you’re close to the stars.

Enjoy your astronomical observation also on full moon nights

It’s inevitable. The moon passes through different phases during its 29-day cycle, that is to say, lunation.

This is why, at least once a month, the potent glow of the Earth’s natural satellite will dim the faint light of the distant celestial bodies.

If you book our astronomical observation on Teide and enjoy it on the night of the full moon, you will take advantage of its radiant appearance and be delighted with its splendour: craters, mountain ranges and other lunar wonders.

You may ask, which ones? You can find the Montes Teneriffe, Mons Pico and the crater Piazzi Smyth on the moon.

If this is news to you, and you’re wondering why they have these names, write this question down so that you can ask our guides on the night of your astronomical observation on Mount Teide.
