Sunset and Stars on Mount Teide

Enjoy a sunset-and-stargazing adventure high in the craggy landscapes of spectacular Mount Teide National Park. Toast the sunset with a glass of champagne before enjoying a typical Canarian dinner followed by stargazing with a professional guide from a special viewpoint on the mountain.

Seeing a sunset from Mount Teide is a spectacular experience.

Your experience starts with the wonderful spectacle of sunset from one of the most privileged lookouts on Teide. On clear days the islands of La Gomera, El Hierro and La Palma can be observed from this vista.

As the sun drops, Teide's enormous shadow stretches out toward the East, creating a spectacular projection and the rocks take on red and orange tones that are in perfect synchronisation with the volcanic terrain.

There is also the optional opportunity to ride the cable car to Mount Teide's summit to savour the spectacle (cable car ticket included).

This is not the end of the experience. Teide National Park provides the ideal conditions to stargaze so after dinner you will be able to admire the stars with the help of expert astonomers who will provide in-depth information about the fascinating world of the night sky.

Long range telescopes will be provided so you can view the most distant constellations and planets, such as Saturn, Jupiter and its moons, or even the craters of our own moon.
