Duration of the tour:
Approximately 1 hour 30 minutes.
The meeting point is the Astronomical Viewpoint Llano del Jable. Depending on weather conditions, the tour might take place at Llano del Jable or we could go by own vehicle to the Astronomical Viewpoint Las Ventas. Remember to keep your mobile phone on, in case of last minute notice. We advise you to previously consult the location of the two viewpoints by clicking on the corresponding links. Both places are close to "Refugio El Pilar", 7 minutes by car from each other. We remind you that these viewpoints are located at about 1300 meters of altitude, often above the clouds, so the sky is usually clear there, even if at the sea level is cloudy.
We do not provide any transfer service. Own car or taxi is required. Consult the public taxis and private buses/minibuses telephone numbers on our FAQ's section.
The tour is carried out in two languages (habitually English and Spanish).
The minimum group to carry out the tour is 4 people. The maximum group is 15 people (one guide and one telescope provided). In case of a larger group, two guides and two telescopes will be available (separate groups).
