Teide National Park: Moonlight Tour and Stargazing

1. Teide National Park: Moonlight Tour and Stargazing

See the moon as never before, on high contrast and full of rich details, as it illuminates the landscape of Teide National Park. Far off the typical daylight vision, which is also spectacular, under the stars you will see a magical scenario that you will never forget. Begin the tour with a naked eye explanation of the brightest constellations, an introduction to how to find the Polar star, and learn about their histories as well as how to look for the visible planets and zodiac constellations. Then, look through the high-end telescopes to see the most impressive celestial objects in the sky, such as planets, satellites, and the moon.

Mount Teide Summit Guided Hiking Tour

2. Mount Teide Summit Guided Hiking Tour

Take a 3-hour guided hike along one or more of the 30 trails on Mount Teide. The great variety and levels of difficulty make it easy for visitors to choose their ideal route with the recommendations of the guide. The trails with the most spectacular vistas are on the summit of Mount Teide (3,718 meters) and they can be reached from the La Rambleta starting point (accessible by cable car) followed by trail number 10.  Without a doubt the most popular trail is the one leading to the volcano's peak, but there are limits on how many people can visit that area of Teide. You will be provided with an official guide, who will prepare you for the hike and accompany you along the route to provide commentary on the spectacular natural landscapes.

Teide National Park Stargazing

3. Teide National Park Stargazing

Starting the tour after sunset, beginning with sights using the naked eye. Learn to recognize the different constellations and the most important stars. Point out the Polaris position and the celestial north pole. Navigate the the ecliptic and zodiac line. Follow Greek mythology through the skies to learn shapes and constellation positions. Then once orientation is established, observe objects and planets through the telescope.  This tour is offered at Teide National Park on areas with good and safe access. With a sky free from light pollution, the National Park, is ideal for such an experience. The professional guide/staff and the advanced telescopes, make for an evening to remember.

Santa Cruz de Tenerife: Private Teide National Park Tour

4. Santa Cruz de Tenerife: Private Teide National Park Tour

Teide sunset Vip tour. Probably the most beautiful excursion in Tenerife. It will allow you to reach an altitude of 2,400 meters, in the most visited National Park in Europe, the Teide National Park, where you can observe the majesty of Teide, which with its 3,718 meters is the third highest volcano in the world from its base. The excursion starts from the south of the island, where you will be able to observe the changes in the vegetation as the altitude increases. We will arrive at the highest municipality in Spain: Vilaflor de Chasna, where we will have the opportunity to taste a barraquito (typical coffee of the island). From here we will enter the Natural Park of the Corona Forestal, where we will stop to observe the Pino Gordo, which is the largest of its kind in the world! Crossing the canary pine forests you will have the chance to photograph, with the increase in altitude, several extraordinary landscapes: sea of clouds, lava flows that reach the edge of the road, the western islands (La Gomera, La Palma and El Hierro) until you reach the National Park, which is a World Heritage Site. Here everything changes again! You will be in front of a lunar landscape and vegetation never seen before! We will make several stops at Roques de García and las minas de San José. Finally, we will be on the slope of Pico Viejo to see a paradisiacal sunset. Teide sunset Vip tour will surely thrill you.

A truly memorable experience, and not because it was freezing cold! Miguel offered a detailed and fascinating tour of our galaxy as seen from Tenerife in January. We saw Orion's nebula, Andromeda galaxy, Mars, Jupiter and its moons, major visible constellations and associated mythology. What's not be wowed by? Thank you Miguel and your team. We've thawed out now and are still talking about it

My daughter and I did the Private National Park Tour with Basso as our guide. To say that he was knowledgable about anything and everything to do with volcanoes and the environment that we visited is an understatement. The magical sunset he took us to, away from the crowds was magical. Thoroughly recommend.
