What to expect

The Astronomy tour is the perfect trip for star lovers, with transport also offered from various points on the island of Tenerife. Your astronomy tour of Teide includes a guided tour in the afternoon to the largest solar observatory in the world, the Teide Observatory, and after the sunset, a stargazing experience using a long range telescope under the clear skies of the Teide National Park, the most visited national park in Europe. Your tour also includes a stop to enjoy a picnic, which you can select to purchase with your tour.

With your Astronomy tour guide, on the afternoon guided tour to Teide Observatory, you will feel like a scientist for a day while learning about the Canary Islands Institute of Astrophysics, also known as IAC. You will participate in an astrophysics workshop, held in the Teide Observatory visitors centre, shared with you by Starlight guides and observe sunspots and solar flares through two solar telescopes

After the guided visit in the afternoon of the world’s largest solar observatory, you will experience the spectacular sunset in the National Park, before beginning the stargazing experience. Under Mount Teide's night sky, it is possible to observe 83 of the 88 constellations. You will discover planets, galaxies, thanks to our professional, last generation long range telescopes.
