Teide under the Stars


Teide under the Stars

25 € per person

Discover the infinite starry sky of Tenerife on an astronomical observation from Las Cañadas del Teide. After a simple afternoon hiking route, at nightfall an infinite number of stars appear in the splendid night sky of Las Cañadas. This is the time to observe the most diverse celestial bodies through a powerful field telescope and learn about the theories of the cosmos from an expert.

Teide under the Stars

Tour organized in collaboration with El Cardón NaturExperience

After a gentle walk through the Cañadas del Teide at dusk, we will reach the observation point where our guide will give an interpretation of the night sky. As night falls and the sky darkens, a starry firmament begins to appear before our eyes.

The dark nights of Las Cañadas provide an impressive view of the different stellar phenomena.  And the guide, thanks to his laser pointer, will detail in an entertaining way the names of each star, satellite or constellation, the history of their names and the use they had in the past to cross the seas of our land.

The stars twinkling beneath the spectacular celestial vault are showing us a light that has been travelling through space for millions of years. It is the light of stars that no longer exist. Stars whose lives ran out millions of years ago but whose light continues to illuminate our sky.

Let yourself be impressed by the magnitude of the infinite and live a different experience at sunset in the Teide National Park!
