As a tourist visiting Tenerife, I was absolutely blown away by the stargazing opportunities on this beautiful Canary Island. With minimal light pollution, especially up in the mountains, the night skies were brilliantly clear and bursting with stars every single evening.

I made sure to book several guided stargazing tours and experiences during my stay to take full advantage. One evening, I went up to the Teide National Park, home to Spain’s highest peak Mount Teide. At over 2,000 meters altitude, using powerful telescopes and laser pointers, our knowledgeable guide showed us incredible views of distant galaxies, nebulae, and constellations I had only read about.

As a splurge, I also treated myself to a private stargazing tour that included a gourmet dinner at sunset followed by a personal astro-guide showing me unobstructed views of the Milky Way’s galactic core from a secluded vista point.

Whether it was an intimate small group or a customized private experience, the stargazing tours in Tenerife were simply out of this world. Below I have listed and linked to several options for stargazing tours on the island.
