Starting the tour after sunset, beginning with sights using the naked eye. Learn to recognize the different constellations and the most important stars.

Teide National Park: Moonlight Tour and Stargazing

2. 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.

What people are saying about Arico

Truly amazing experience. Everything was explained perfectly and even though there was a last-minute change of plans due to bad weather, the guides made sure to communicate with us so we were able to reschedule. The stargazing was amazing. Miguel is incredibly knowledgable and makes the whole experience fun and understandable even for astronomy beginners. He points out and explains different objects in the sky: from galaxies and star clusters to stars and, above everything, planets. He does this with a strong laser so you can first see it with naked eye but then shows you using a powerful telescope as well. While we got really cold half-way through (make sure to bring warm clothes, folks!) and decided to cut our experience short, we would have loved to stay and listen to Miguel talk about different constellations as well.

Stargazing activity at night on Teide was amazing. Seeing Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, constelation of 7 sisters and many more first time in my life, really worth every penny. Interesting facts, will deffo look up additional things. Great organisation. Just make sure you dress up warm. It was 8 degrees mid of November ’22.

It is a nice activity on the border between science and hobby with basic knowledge and some advanced also. A nice opportunity to look through big telescope and see the planes of our system.

Great experience and staff are helpful and friendly. I would recommend this company as they’re very professional and efficient

Great guide,Miguel I think, very professional and friendly, really recommend if you're interested in astronomy
