Experience the magic of the night sky with a RockNatour astronomy hiking adventure in Gran Canaria

We are professional Starlight Monitors and Mountain Guides too, so we mix both fields to have a beautiful experience in the night. Live the nature like the people do it in the past, looking up to understand what is hapenning down. Our routes are easy level, the objective is enjoy the nature and the sky. We don’t use telescopes because we like to move to keep warm in the night and enjoy the feeling of the night walking in the mountains, but we use binoculars and other resources to make the best experience. We offer two different routes, depending on the weather.

We will meet in the center of the island. From here we will start a hiking in a part of the Santiago’s Way of Gran Canaria, the most famous trekking of the island. We will reach one of the most wanted spots of this zone, la Ventana del Nublo. In this magic place we will see the sunset and we will talk about basic concepts of astronomy while the sky is getting dark.

We will lay down and we will watch the universe and if we are lucky we will see some shooting stars. We will learn to indentify constellations, planets and we will take a hot drink to be warm. For finishing the route we will walk in the forest with no lights to feel the nature with our senses (we always will have the frontal light if we want to turn it on).
