Dates

Check the available dates in our calendar. The tour is not available in the days near the full Moon. More information on our FAQ's section.

Schedule
The tour lasts approximately 1 hour 30 minutes. The start time depends on the sunset. Consult our calendar.
Location

The meeting point is the Astronomical Viewpoint Llano del Jable. Depending on weather conditions, the tour might take place at the Llano del Jable or we could go by own vehicle to the Astronomical Viewpoint Las Ventas. Both places are close to "Refugio El Pilar", 7 minutes by car from each other. We remind you that these viewpoints are located at about 1300 meters of altitude, often above the clouds, so the sky is usually clear there, even if at the sea level is cloudy.
The stargazing tour DOES NOT TAKE PLACE at the Roque de Los Muchachos Observatory.
