Tenerife is one of the best places in Europe to go stargazing thanks to the clear skies, low light pollution, and the high altitude of Mount Teide. It’s an awe-inspiring romantic way to spend the evening and easily one of the top-10 things to do in Tenerife.
Night Skies Tenerife provides a stargazing tour with the wow factor that includes a 3 course Canarian dinner, a cava sunset at 1400+ meters, a star safari in Teide National park, and guided telescope viewings of the stars and moon. Trust us when we say this is one of the best excursions, especially for couples and astronomy lovers. It even won the Best Thing To Do in Tenerife at Night 2019.
The evening starts with a three course meal at a traditional Canarian restaurant part way up the mountain, where you can enjoy local delicacies like Canarian Potatoes (papas bravas) and the local wine in a charming rustic setting.
Now, I am a sucker for stargazing but I have to admit that the highlight of the tour for me is the cava sunset. It’s one of those moments that will leave you speechless, the sheer beauty and wonder of seeing the sunset from above the clouds is unlike anything I’ve experienced before or since. It’s such a special moment and makes a fitting backdrop for toasting special occasions.
The grand finale of the tour is the star safari which takes place at one of the best viewing points up Mount Teide. It really is a stargazer's dream with the crystal clear skies providing unprecedented visibility of the universe, with your host and expert stargazer Kieran highlighting the constellations by laser pen. You’ll also get to see the moon and the planets in magnificent detail through the professional telescope.
Stargazing up Mount Teide is by far one of the most incredible things you can do in Tenerife and there’s no better way to experience it than with Night Skies Tenerife.
