La Palma is one of the best locations in the world for photography lovers. Thanks to the diversity of its landscapes, on the same day you can visit volcanoes, beaches, forests... Although if the island really stands out for something, it is because of the incredible sky that we can admire from here. The sky of La Palma needs no introduction: it is one of the best in the world. It is a breathtaking experience.
In our night photo tours you will be accompanied by Abián San Gil, a professional photographer born and bred on La Palma and specialised in night and landscape photography.
You will visit some of the most amazing landscapes and, taking advantage of his experience and knowledge of the island, together with him and his cameras, you will take the most beautiful pictures.
And if you and your partner want to be the protagonists of the photos with a wonderful starry sky in the background, our photographer will take care of making a complete photo book with the most romantic photos under the stars. If you are looking for an original experience for a special occasion, this is the perfect gift for you.
The tour is suitable to anyone who likes photography, whether they are beginner or advanced users. No previous knowledge is required. A small initiation workshop will be given to people who require it.
