Stargazing Experience is not just a regular tour you can take anywhere. This is really the ultimate adventure! We go to up 2200 meters to the crater of the highest volcano in the whole of Spain and in the whole of the Atlantic Ocean. We are there in the night time without any artificial light where only the light of the stars or Moon shine upon us. We perform very sophisticated observations with our telescopes and take spectacular pictures of far away objects. During each excursion you can be part of a real astronomy session and see various objects as far away as 135 million light years away from us! Get ready to see other galaxies, places where new stars are born, comets and much more!
During the excursion we use variety of different telescopes and quite a lot of astrophotography equipment. We have professional solar telescopes with H-alpha filters as well as the whole set of night time telescopes with different filters and lenses. The professional astropictures we take during our excursions are available to you for free on our facebook page. Our certified guides have enough time to answer any questions you may have regarding astronomy, the telescopes or astrophotography. The programme of Stargazing Experience is created within the STEAM education system and is a great contribution to the school curriculum of your child. Our guides are certified by the European Union in general performance of the tour, by Canarian Institute of Astrophysics in presenting astronomical knowledge to all audiences and by Starlight Foundation as official Starlight Monitors capable of performing licensed observations on Teide.
Astronomy is one of those things that binds the family together. Stargazing Experience is special that way. We are fully prepared to welcome every member of your family from the youngest to the most mature. Have this experience together with your loved ones and later share the passion for astronomy with them as well! Especially for you, we are ready to answer all your questions and our telescopes are set for easy access by the young ones. Even though we go high to the crater of the volcano, the places we choose for the observations do not require walking.
Looking for something special for your loved ones? Maybe it’s time for the big question and you want it to be really special? There is not many things more special than the stars! Let us know in advance about your surprise plans and we’ll be there for you to assist you and take plenty of pictures and videos of your big night!
BIRTHDAYS AND GIFTS
Stargazing Experience is a great way of celebrating birthdays! The sound of “happy birthday”, view of the setting sun and champagne on Mount Teide will make this birthday one to remember.
