Our guide to Sunset and Stars on Mount Teide
Seeing a sunset from Mount Teide is a spectacular experience. Seeing it with a glass of champagne in hand, followed by an authentic local dinner and then a bout of stargazing is even better.
Your experience starts with the wonderful spectacle of sunset from one of the most privileged lookouts on Teide. On clear days the islands of La Gomera, El Hierro and La Palma can be observed from this vista.
As the sun drops, Teide's enormous shadow stretches out toward the East, creating a spectacular projection and the rocks take on red and orange tones that are in perfect synchronisation with the volcanic terrain.
A glass of champagne is offered to enjoy the moment from such a privileged location. There is also the optional opportunity to ride the cable car to Mount Teide's summit to savour the spectacle (cable car ticket included).
Afterwards, you will be taken back to the lower station of Teide Cable Car where a cocktail dinner awaits - see sample menu below. Dinner is accompanied with Red, White and Rose wines from the islands.
This is not the end of the experience. Teide National Park provides the ideal conditions to stargaze so after dinner you will be able to admire the stars with the help of expert astonomers who will provide in-depth information about the fascinating world of the night sky.
Long range telescopes will be provided so you can view the most distant constellations and planets, such as Saturn, Jupiter and its moons, or even the craters of our own moon.
Sample Menu (subject to change):
- Cold dishes: Cheese board of Canary Island cheeses with bread and almogrote (pâté of mature cheese), Balls of gofio (dough made from roasted corn, millet or barley grains) with nuts, dried fruit and honey; Papita negra (Canarian black potato) with octopus salad and paprika.
