We will start at night or by sunset depending on the time of the year, and so both the sky and the landscape change depending on the season, the moon phase and the astronomical ephemerides (meteor showers, comets or planetary conjunctions). The activity includes an interpretation of the sky, mixing astronomy and history as well as gazing by eye stars, planets and constellations. Tuesdays and Fridays: Regular Group Activities in English, gathering on average 10 to 20 people. Easy night walk of 3km. Ideal for families, couples and friends who want to be inspired by nature doing a relaxing walk and having time to stop, sit and contemplate the night. Spanish sessions are hosted by coworkers (requires a minimum of 5 people). Activities may be canceled depending on the weather evolution or fully cloudy sky. If I cancel, you are 100% refunded. Lanterns are provided. If you wish a private activity, including the possibility of having a telescope observation, just let me know.

Small private group ( up to 4-6 persons). Hi, all extreme lovers! We have one more unforgettable adventure through our magnificent Los Gigantes cliiffs! If you need rest from hustle and bustle join me on this exciting hiking trail! The whole way is entire "observation deck" of gorgeous cliffs and boundless ocean. I'll guide you through the secret hiking path on the edge of the cliffs; we'll cross the tunnel with flashlights and helmets; take a look in the hut of those who pierced these tunnels; climb up the gorge to the water gallery. During a picnic with sandwiches, I'll tell you a lot of interesting things about these harsh mountain regions. Rested and refreshed we'll climb up to one more tunnel ( around 1km long). After photoshooting in the tunnel and seeing the light of day again we will finish our hero's day by coming back by car/bus to town Los Gigantes. Totally trip takes ~5 hs. Some notes: - we can see dolphins and whales from the bird's eye ( if we're lucky). Other things to note The trip can depend of weather conditions ( strong wind and/or rain). Update: for now tunnel is closed temporarily. So until it will be opened our way back will be the same way, not a circle.

There will also be a great opportunity to observe the fascinating life of ocean creatures living in this part of the coast of Tenerife. On the Barco 33, we will leave the port of Puerto Colon and head towards La Gomera, where we will get to know the life of the local ocean creatures, which you will not find anywhere else but these places. Then we turn abruptly to the north and throw an anchor in the bay of La Caleta or El Puertito. You can swim and dive in the crystal clear water and swim among exotic fish, and sometimes even turtles. Here you will be able to fish as well, because where else but in the Atlantic Ocean you will find such a quantity and variety of marine fauna.

Magical Walk to a Secret Beach and Natural Pools
Join our Herreño wolfdog on a tour of a private banana plantation on the seaside. Zulu has a very friendly character and you will certainly fall in love with him. ------------------------------- One of the least known races but probably one of the most adorable is the Herreño wolfdog. The name may suggest a wolf as a descendent but he has nothing to do with these canine animals, but rather with the shepherd dogs. This very friendly breed was found on the island of El Hierro (Canary Islands), hence the name. We invite you to bring your own dog(s) with you regardless of the size. Zulu will get on with every dog. He will leave them alone if they show signs of fear or are too aggressive or don't have the interest to play. ------------------------------ Our first highlight will be a sea inlet where you can swim with Zulu. From that beach, we continue with the tour through the banana plantation to several natural pools between rocks that require local knowledge to be found, each time with the option of bathing. After passing some seashore trenches of the Spanish civil war we arrive at a former packing house and natural loading dock. This activity can be done in 5 languages simultaneously: Spanish, French, English, German and Russian. Please indicate your language with your booking.
Visit an Ecological Banana Plantation
While taking a nice walk around the estate I will give explanations and descriptions that will allow you to know first hand how we understand and live sustainability.

Teide with a breathtaking sunset from above the clouds
First, we’ll drive our way up towards the town of Arona, and through to the highest town of Spain Vilaflor. Here at Vilaflor, we’ll have some time for a short break to walk through the peaceful town and perhaps to enjoy a good-tasting local coffee. After our break, we’ll continue our journey through the enormous pine forest where we’ll be able to get to the largest and very old pine tree "El Pino Gordo" for nice pictures. Further on, we arrive at the highlight of the park with an amazing landscape of different lava materials, and the great famous rocks named "Roques de García". Here we’ll have some time to explore the landscape and take some beautiful pictures as well. Also, there is a small hotel in the area, a cafeteria and a nice souvenir shop. Later on, we also will pass by the old peak of the Teide "El Pico Viejo" with its huge lava field of over 5 km². Fairly recent with just over 200 years ago. Then we continue to a five hundred years old lava flow from the volcano "Boca Cangrejo", with the great view to the neighboring island of La Gomera. Thereafter, we drive a little further into the Teide National Park, and we arrive at a place where we have the opportunity to take a short walk to the crater of the Sámara volcano. last but not least, we’ll be able to get to a fantastic area and set up for a breathtaking sunset view before driving back towards your hotel/ address.
Astrophototour
Group or customized stargazing with a powerful 40 cm diameter professional telescope in the Teide National Park. At over 2300m of altitude where the sky is among the clearest and darkest in the world, you will be able to see live objects such as galaxies, nebulae, the moon and the planets of the solar system and learn all their secrets. Unlike other agencies in the area that offer "mass" tours of this type, with small groups of people it will be possible to interact better and explain this wonderful science in detail, and I will also be able to answer any questions thanks to my experience gained in 25 years of collaboration with an astronomical observatory in northern Italy. I also propose basic and advanced workshops to learn astronomical photography for the most passionate who already know astronomy and want to expand their skills and get more satisfaction in this activity.
