An Astronomy safari or tour is a comprehensive stargazing activity for all. This activity includes an introduction to the night sky, stars and the Universe. It includes the guided use of telescopes for night sky observation of visible planets, the Moon, stars, galaxies, etc. Also, it includes sky orientation using constellations and detailed explanations by expert astronomy guides. While in La Palma, these astronomy tours are an ideal complement for visitors, taking advantage of La Palma being one of the best locations in the world for both professional and amateur astronomy.
