Stargazing was the main purpose for us to visit La Palma. The tour was very informative and with excellent services. Thanks to the team for waiting till midnight and showing us the rise of Saturn which clear image was amazing.

The best place in europe for stargazing. Amazing roadto the top of the volcano, 28 kilometers up! Do not forget to wear WARM clothes, it is windy and freezing. Hard to imagine how many stars are visible. Awesome guides provides professional telescopes. Thank you !

It is worth knowing that you won't be able to hire any equipment without being trained in how to use it. We drove across the island to be told that, as beginners, we couldn't rent any equipment. This would be perfectly acceptable if it weren't...More

It is true we do not recommed renting a telescope for beginners. Without knowing the sky and without knowing how to work out the equipment, it would be a waste of money. We do this out of honesty and also to keep our equipment safe....More

Hi, I would like to book this tour as a SURPRISE for myself and my partner for next month. Does the cost include transportation from the hotel (We are staying in the Hacienda San Jorge). Can I book online, and pay with card, or pay upon arrival? Can you give me details please so I can book? Thank you so much, Karen Jones

On their site, you can pay with a credit card. Book early because sometimes you Will be put on á waiting list. When the weather should be bad you can go on another day or you can have your money back.

We are staying in Fuencaliente on the west side of the island. Do you know if there is any way of being picked up from there to go on this excursion?

I don't think so. Once you are at there office/meeting point they offer to drive you to the points where the stargazing takes place. But you van call them. The phone number and office hours are on their website
