Astronomy tours are safe. However, they take place at night. We recommend clients to follow some basic precaution measures, such as perhaps to have a red torch, drive slowly after dark…. However, it is extremely important for you to bring winter clothing to the activity as temperature may drop at night, even in summer.

Yes, always. It is very important. We strongly recommend you to wear warm winter clothes even in summer. At high altitudes, temperatures can drop up to 5 C in winter and be around 15C in summer. We are outdoors.

To enjoy the stars, please wear comfortable and warm clothes. If you are too warm, you can always take them off, but if you are cold it will not be pleasant.

All our activities are in Spanish and English. Sometimes we have guides that also Speak german, so yes, it is possible to have a guide who is English speaking.

Yes. Occasionally we offer a 10% discount on online bookings. It will show on the price tag. For groups, we also have discounts depending on group size.

Meeting point is in our office in Los Cancajos. We have chosen this option after years of experience. We honestly think this is the best option. Even if you are staying on another side of the island or if you want to make the most of your time in La Palma, our office is the best option for the meeting point. This is because our office has electricity, mobile signal, street lights and it is in an easy-to-find location whereas astronomy viewpoints have no lights, very poor (or none) mobile signal and are dark (we are going to stargaze!!). So we honestly think, we need to guide you there even for self-drive options. Do not worry, roads are fine and safe (no 4×4 needed), only that you do not know them! Besides, we do want to meet you and chances are that, by meeting in the mountain in the dark, we would miss each other. We would think it would be irresponsible to do otherwise.

Also, please consider that, our activities are weather dependant. By meeting in our office we have more chances to be flexible and to adapt to weather conditions (clouds and microclimates). We do not always go to the same site to stargaze. Viewing sites chosen depending on weather conditions exclusively. We would go to the best site each night.

We recommend that you check the phase of the moon before making your reservation. All nights are not the same. Nor are the stars the same depending on the season of the year, nor do they look the same depending on the phase of the moon. Even so, moonlit nights are spectacular and totally natural.

A few days around a full moon, the Moon will dominate the sky and it will not be a dark night. Some people like the Moon very much, like children, and others prefer a very dark night. Please see the calendar here. And if you have any doubts, send us an email.
