....The island of Fuerteventura is made up of ancient volcanoes and spectacular beaches, but there is another hidden treasure to explore! The night sky is a wonder to observe. Each night sharing a different side to her immense beauty! With the phases of the Moon, the movement of the constellations, the Milky Way and the constant dance of the planets around our Sun, to mention a few. And here in Fuerteventura we have excellent conditions for observing the night sky, surrounded by the awe inspiring landscape!

Our location close to the equator gives us access to the whole of the northern hemisphere and a large part of the southern too. We have clean skies, with little: air pollution; air traffic; cloud coverage and light pollution. The island received Starlight Reserve status in 2015 in recognition of the sky quality and access to it.

Dare to venture into the darkness and you can locate constellations and learn about their associated myths, understand the formation of stars and basic astronomy and if you are lucky you will get to observe a galaxy, binary stars, a planet, our magical Moon, nebulas or even shooting stars!

Experience the wonder of the night sky under the guidance of our passionate star guide or astronomer and connect with nature! ..

....Discover the beauty of the night sky with our Star Guide

Leave the noise and light of the town and experience the incredible beauty and calming effects of the night sky. We will collect you from your accommodation or you can meet us at a given location. The weather, in particular the wind and the phase and position of the Moon will determine where we make the observation on a given night but we aim to observe in primarily wild and dark locations. At the observation point the Star Guide will mount the telescope whilst the group get comfortable with the rugs and blankets. Lie back and look up at the immense universe above whilst listening to our passionate Star Guide introducing us to this incredible space! Observe the movement of our planet through the movement of the stars and other celestial objects through the night sky, observe the details of the Moon, or even other planets and far away galaxies!

The observation is 1.5hours with telescope and Laser pointer. You need no prior knowledge of astronomy to enjoy this evening. Our Star Guide will showcase the objects visible in the sky on that particular night. We provide rugs and blankets.

GROUP OBSERVATION 2 observations per week, collections from Corralejo and Caleta areas, min 4 max 12 persons (individual bookings are welcome). If you have your own car you can meet us at the meeting point but please consider if you are happy driving in the dark before choosing this option!

PRICE not including transport 33€ per adult /23€ for a child under 12 years

PRIVATE OBSERVATION You choose - observe in a dark wild location or from the comfort of your back garden! We cover the whole island.

The food is locally sourced and the menu showcases typical food from Fuerteventura that has been elevated. After the delights of the meal, the real adventure begins!

The observation is 1.5hours with telescope and Laser pointer. You need no prior knowledge of astronomy to enjoy this evening. Our astronomer will showcase the objects visible in the sky on that particular night.
