See the sunset and stargaze at the highest peak in Spain before enjoying a delicious cocktail dinner
An adventure for lovers of the world’s natural wonders, this experience in Tenerife will allow you to watch the sunset and admire the night sky at the Teide National Park, famed for being one of the best locations on the planet for star gazing. After experiencing the breathtaking sights from Mount Teide, Spain’s highest peak, unwind with a Canarian cocktail dinner designed by two-Michelin-starred chef Erlantz Gorostiza.
The Teide National Park is a breathtaking volcanic setting boasting a close-up view of Mount Teide (Spain’s highest peak at 3,718 metres) and other stunning volcanic formations. Mount Teide and the Peaks of Tenerife were recently awarded the Starlight Certification in acknowledgement of their international standing as an ideal location for stargazing, due to the high altitude and low light pollution. The breathtaking sights visible from the National Park include the rings of Saturn and the Moon’s craters.
On the Sunset and Stars Teide tour, you will have exclusive use of the cable car and the unique privilege of witnessing the highest sunset in Spain at an altitude of 3718m. You will fly over craters and lava flows, whilst taking in the unforgettable views; due to the height of the volcano, visitors will be able to behold Teide’s shadow cast to all horizons and towards the island of Gran Canaria. As part of the Sunset and Stars on Teide experience, you will be given a guided tour along the spectacular trail to the Pico Viejo viewpoint, where you will discover many volcanic wonders and enjoy the surrounding scenery, which acquires a remarkable array of colours at sunset.
After your descent from Mount Teide, indulge in a cocktail dinner full of traditional savours of the Canary Islands and accompanied by local wines, served at the Teide Cable Car base station and designed by Erlantz Gorostiza, two-Michelin-starred chef of M.B restaurant. Then, to top off a magical day, you will use professional state-of-the-art telescopes to discover planets, galaxies and clusters you have never seen before, whilst the guides provide you with interesting information about the beauty you observe through the telescopes.
