Description

A night excursion to Mount Teide that you’re certain to find fascinating.

Much has been said about the spectacular landscape of the Teide National Park, but the transformation it undergoes when the sun sets is rarely mentioned. Our Mount Teide Night Tour wants to show you exactly that: the array of colours that adds beauty to the horizon at sunset and dyes the sky dark to expose 83 of the 88 constellations known to man.

If you want to ascend Mount Teide at night, with the help of the Cable Car, and watch the sunset from an altitude of 3,555 metres, we recommend the activity Sunset & Stars (Sunset and Stars on Teide), which, in addition to cable car tickets, also includes an astronomical observation using long-range telescopes.

The sky over Mount Teide is one of the best on the planet to observe the stars. Reduced light pollution of its environment allows you to see a clear, sharp celestial dome full of mythological stories and mysteries, which you can fully discover during the Mount Teide Night Tour with the assistance of the Starlight guides, who are available to you throughout the entire observation. This will take place at the base station of the cable car, at an altitude of 2,356 metres, using professional long-range telescopes.

But first, you will have comfortably reached an important viewpoint in the National Park to take in an unforgettable sunset. Among volcanoes, beholding the colours of a treasure of nature such as this unspoilt enclave, you will be full of expectations about the objects that you’re about to discover: planets, galaxies, clusters, and—if your Mount Teide Night Tour takes place on a full moon night—the complete geography of our natural satellite that will take you to the Moon quite literally.

Can you think of a better way of visiting Mount Teide by night than on this excursion?
