THEMED ROUTE BY BUS WITH ASTRONOMICAL OBSERVATION

A journey to the stars

 

With this route you can see one of the best skies on the island by day and night. We will take you from the pick-up point to the viewpoint Roque de los Muchachos at 2426 m. high. This natural enclave is also home to the Astrophysical Observatory of Roque de Los Muchachos (ORM), a renowned scientific research center.

 

On the way to the highest point of the island, we will drive with our bus through the area where the telescopes are located on both sides of the road.

 

We will talk about each of them and why they chose this extraordinary place for their location. You can get to know first-hand the sky of La Palma and the peculiarities of this observatory, considered one of the best places in the world for the practice of astronomy.

 

Not far from these facilities, touching above the clouds and the sky, we can enjoy an unforgettable sunset, accompanied by a glass of wine. In the darkness of the night, at a nearby astronomical viewpoint,  an amateur telescope observation takes place. Our team of Starlight guides will give you the opportunity to discover an infinity of stars and not only that, but also galaxies, planets, nebulae, groups of stars, etc.  …. .

 

 

Come and enjoy the route with the peace and safety offered by our buses and experienced drivers. So that you do not have to drive at night, ?

 

The infinity of the sky of La Palma will captivate you.
