Description

A show of nature at sunset 

You will behold the unique spectacle that is the Teide’s shadow at dusk.

You will take in the marvellous sunset from one of the Cable Car's viewpoint terraces. If the weather is clear you will be able to spot the islands of La Palma, La Gomera and El Hierro. 

Romantic dinner

After the sunset you will be treated to a cocktail dinner designed by Erlantz Gorostiza, two-Michelin-starred chef of M.B restaurant, that will make even the most demanding gourmet’s mouth water, served with white, red and rosé wines from the island.

Astronomical observation

After dinner, with the assistance of our Starlight guides and thanks to our long range telescopes, you will discover objects such as planets, galaxies or clusters as you have surely never seen before.
