What you'll do

I invite you to join on this astronomical and stargazing adventure and share the magical night sky of Tenerife island from Teide National Park. We will be about 2000 meters over the sea level, which you may feel if you are not used to it. We will meet at the core of Teide National Park (no bus at night), starting the activity at night or sunset depending on the time of the year. The activity includes an entertaining interpretation of the sky, mixing astronomy and history as well as gazing by eye stars, planets and constellations.

#Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays: Regular Group Activities in English, gathering in average 10 to 20 people. Easy night walk of 3km. Ideal for families and friends which want to be inspired by nature doing a relax walk and having time to stop, seat and contemplate the night.

#Wednesdays: Small Group Activities in English, restricted to 6-8 people. Easy to moderate trekking of 6 km. Ideal for trekker families, couples or friend groups that want to push a bit further through the night, mixing fun and challenge.

Thursdays are hosted by coworkers. Activities may be changed or cancelled depending on weather forecast. Lanterns are provided. If you wish to do a private activity, including the possibility of having a telescope observation, just ask me in advance.

Adal was friendly, knowledgeable and very passionate guide! He got the group engaged with the tour and was excellent value for money. We even got a good photo taken of us and a biscuit to keep at the end too!

Highly recommended, this was by far the best activity we had on the Canary Islands. Adal made this whole tour really unique. Can not recommend it enough. So worth it.

We usually do not book group tours but made an exception with this tour and were not disappointed, actually it was much better than we expected. Adal is super knowledgeable and sweet. We learned a lot! Would definitely recommend.

What a special treat! It’s absolutely magical to walk under the starry sky amidst cool rock formations. I was a bit worried about the cold and the height because I am 7 month pregnant but Adal advised us well on what to wear and the walk was super easy to manage. Definitely would recommend this!

Die Sternen- Wanderung mit Adal war ein ganz besonderes Erlebnis, die unsere vierköpfige Gruppe, plus zwei Hunde, vollendens verzaubert hat. Adal ist ein erfahrener und kompetenter Guide der sich ganz auf die Bedürfnisse und den Wissensstand der Gruppe einstellt - wir empfehlen ihn jederzeit und uneingeschränkt weiter. Vielen Dank Adal!
