Stargazing tour under the sky of Tenerife
Come and join us on this astronomical adventure and stargazing experience to share the magical night sky of Tenerife island from Teide National Park.

The activity includes an interpretation of the sky, mixing astronomy and history as well as gazing by eye stars, planets and constellations. Tuesdays and Fridays: Regular Group Activities in English, gathering on average 10 to 20 people. Easy night walk of 3km. Ideal for families, couples and friends who want to be inspired by nature doing a relaxing walk and having time to stop, sit and contemplate the night. Spanish sessions are hosted by coworkers. Activities may be canceled depending on the weather evolution or fully cloudy sky. If I cancel, you are 100% refunded. Lanterns are provided. Telescope is not included.

Astrophototour
Group or customized stargazing with a powerful 40 cm diameter professional telescope in the Teide National Park. At over 2300m of altitude where the sky is among the clearest and darkest in the world, you will be able to see live objects such as galaxies, nebulae, the moon and the planets of the solar system and learn all their secrets. Unlike other agencies in the area that offer "mass" tours of this type, with small groups of people it will be possible to interact better and explain this wonderful science in detail, and I will also be able to answer any questions thanks to my experience gained in 25 years of collaboration with an astronomical observatory in northern Italy. I also propose basic and advanced workshops to learn astronomical photography for the most passionate who already know astronomy and want to expand their skills and get more satisfaction in this activity.
