Tenerife is one of the best places in the world for stargazing. Not only are its skies exceptionally dark and clear, they are dark all year round, so when the nights stop being dark in the UK and mainland Europe, it’s still Astro-season here! Why be restricted to a few winter months to enjoy your hobby when you can do it here at any time of the year?
Very clean air and typically over 290 days per year of clear or mainly clear skies makes Tenerife world-renowned as a top destination to go stargazing. Dark Skies Tenerife offers unique stargazing holidays to suit everyone who wants to experience the true darkness of Tenerife and the stunning beauty of its starry skies.
Dark Skies Tenerife has its own “stay and gaze” hotel located in Vilaflor, a place where it is easy to escape light pollution and clouds. We offer much more than just a coach tour up the mountain; we have our own telescopes, binoculars, a roof top observing terrace and a range of holiday packages, excursions and astronomy equipment to suit everyone. Guests can fully indulge their passion for the night sky be it stargazing, deep sky astronomy or astrophotography. Our resident astronomer is an experienced sky guide and presenter and will be happy to help you discover the delights of our clear skies. He also teaches astro-photography to those wanting to go beyond visual astronomy.
If you haven’t experienced it before, you just won’t believe how good the night sky is here!
