Discover the magic of Tenerife at twilight with an unforgettable evening visit to the UNESCO-listed Teide National Park on this 4-hour tour. Ride the cable car to the 11,663-foot (3,555-meter) lookout point on Mt Teide and sip sparkling wine as you watch the sunset over the Canary Islands from Spain’s highest peak. After a cocktail dinner of traditional Canarian foods (included), unravel the secrets of the night sky on a unique stargazing excursion.
  • 4-hour Mt Teide sunset and stargazing experience in Tenerife
  • Soak up the scenery at Teide National Park, a UNESCO World Heritage site
  • Sip Champagne and watch the sun set from a vantage point on Mt Teide
  • Dine on typical Canarian cuisine and enjoy a selection of local liqueur, wines and beer
  • See star clusters, galaxies, planets and the moon on a stargazing journey with an expert guide
  • Hotel pickup and drop-off included (if option selected)

At your south or north Tenerife hotel, you’ll climb aboard an air-conditioned coach destined for the UNESCO-listed Mount Teide National Park. Admire the rugged landscapes of Tenerife’s countryside as the dramatic silhouette of Mt Teide comes into focus.

On arrival, begin your ascent of Mt Teide in your vehicle. Gaze at a vibrant tableau of ocher-hued rock before disembarking at the upper cable station at Spain’s highest point. Sip a glass of sparkling wine and be enchanted by the slow spectacle of the sunset.

After you see the national park aglow with orange light, pleasure your palate with a Canarian feast of specialties such as papas arrugadas (wrinkled potatoes) and almogrote (cheese paste with pepper, olive oil and garlic), and sip local liqueur, beer, wine or soda. See the Itinerary section for a sample menu.

Sated, return to your coach and travel to a stargazing spot off the beaten track. Alongside a stargazing guide, you’ll spot glittering constellations and winking planets amid the inky blackness of the night sky. If the weather conditions prevent stargazing, you’ll enjoy a virtual tour of the sky.

Your tour concludes with drop-off at your hotel in south or north Tenerife.


Sample Menu:
  • Selection of Canary Island cheese served with bread and almogrote (cheese paste with peppers, olive oil and garlic)

We were very pleased with this experience. Even tough the cablecars were closed due to high winds 80 km/h, we viewed the sunset from the Observatory, and that was just as spectacular. Got to see Teide in front of the sunset. Since the cablecars were closed, we were given the option to ride them the next day, early in the morning 9 am, which we highly recommend.. Less people and lines.

Our driver and guide picked us up on time, were highly knowledgable, and friendly. They told facts about the park on our drive to and from the Observatory.

The dinner, held at the cablecars facilities, was good, but service was a little slow. We were extremely hungry.

The best part was the stargazing. We were lucky and the skies were clear, and it gave an extremely good view of the Milky Way. Our astronomer gave us a chance to look in their telescopes and showed us the constellations.
After that, we were dropped of at our hotel Parador del Teide, and we couldn't help looking at the starts for a few more hours..

Great experience!

Unfortunately, due to wind, the cable car was not operating on the day of our excursion but the rest of the trip up the mountain was fabulous. Watching the sunset was the highlight of the tour and the food afterwards was excellent and plentiful. Looking at the stars and moon was also incredible. Well recommended.

Great tour! Loved the actual experience of the volcano scenery. The bus ride was quite long and our bus broke down...leaving us stranded for 40 minutes until another bus showed. Also, due to ice we weren't able to take the cable car. I think this is one of the best things to do in Tenerife. Wish everything had gone to plan for our trip though!

Amazing tour. Well organised and lovely guides on every section of the tour. Beautiful views of the sunset from the top of Mount Teide. Lovely buffet dinner. And rounded off with a fascinating view of constellations and planets - naked eye and using telescopes. We saw Mars, the moon, and Saturn with it's rings and moons through the telescope. Many thanks to the local astronomer/astrophysicist who took our English speaking group - a really informative and entertaining presentation.

This is a great tour if you want to see a different side to the island. It is quite a long drive in a coach to reach Mt Teide and I would recommend wearing as many layers as possible as it's very cold at the top (especially as the sun starts to set). The views are spectacular and it's nice to be able to enjoy a refreshment in the warmth after the cable car visit to the top. After some food and drink you get to spend time star gazing with a guide and a few telescopes set up focused on different points of interest. It was a great way to spend an evening!

A very enjoyable afternoon/evening. To be honest the sunsets we have at home are more impressive - but the surroundings were spectacular, our guide was amusing and the sparkling wine flowed. The Canarien dinner was very good - again, plenty of wine too. It is very cold up that high after the sun goes down and we had not taken enough warm clothes - also as it was a half-moon the stars were not that bright - but it was a joy to look through the telescopes at the surface of the moon, the Andromeda galaxy etc. Very interesting to see the Teide natural park, the pines, the lava flows etc. - altogether a great experience.

Sehr interessanter Ausflug mit netter, deutschsprachiger Reiseleitung. Leider konnte der Ausflug nicht wie geplant mit der Seilbahn auf den Teide durchgeführt werden aufgrund von starkem Wind. Die Kosten der Seilbahn wurden umgehend zurückerstattet.
Dafür genossen wir den Sonnenuntergang in der Nähe mit Sekt oder wahlweise heißem Kakao, denn es war sehr, sehr kalt an diesem Abend. Das Abendessen war ein Fingerfoodmenü mit den unterschiedlichsten Häppchen, sehr lecker. Zum Abschluss erklärte ein Mitarbeiter der Sternwarte uns den Sternenhimmel. Mit einem Blick durch Teleskope konnten wir die Sterne noch besser sehen.

Ein sehr schöner, interessanter Ausflug. Es ist aber unbedingt warme Kleidung, Mütze, Handschuhe und festes Schuhwerk angebracht.
