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.

During this exclusive astronomical observation activity, certified astronomical guides will wait for you and whomever you choose in a planetarium (optional), where you can get a glimpse of the celestial secrets guarded by Mount Teide, and will unravel the mysteries of the Universe using professional telescopes, thanks to which you will 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 additionally, in the summertime, you can enjoy perfect visibility of the Milky Way.

And all this exclusively for you and the companions you choose!

A fascinating astronomical observation on Teide to watch the stars in 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 during this astronomical observation on Teide.

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 this stargazing experience 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.

During the course of this stargazing experience in Tenerife you will be able to use these machines to take a tour through the night’s most interesting celestial objects. Our monitors will also provide you with relevant information about the objects that you will see through the lens—exclusively for you and whomever accompanies you!

Get closer to the stars on Mt Teide with professional telescopes

This stargazing experience on Teide, which we offer as a private activity, begins in our planetarium in Tenerife (optional). Here, you can enjoy a preview of the celestial secrets guarded by Mount Teide before moving out to observe the clear, starry sky from the car park of the cable car base station (at an altitude of 2,536 m), using long-range, professional telescopes.

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

Enjoy your stargazing experience in Tenerife 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.
