ONE OF THE BEST PLACES IN EUROPE TO OBSERVE THE STARS
Enjoy a different perspective of the stunning island of Fuerteventura. At night the island is transformed into a sky bursting with stars, inviting us to reconnect with the beauty and complexity of our universe. We will take you to the darkest spots on the island to show off the true magic of a starry sky, a crescent moon, star nurseries, planets and much more! There is always something incredible happening in our dark night skies. Whether you are a beginner or already have a wide knowledge you are sure to learn something from our stargazing observations.
Fuerteventura is set in a privileged spot, at a latitude of 28º north! You can observe the whole of the northern hemisphere and a large part of the southern. The cloud free skies, clean atmosphere and areas of little light pollution make Fuerteventura one of the best places in Europe to observe the night sky. NASA cite the Canary Islands as being one of the four windows to the universe and Fuerteventura has recently been awarded Starlight Reserve status from UNESCO (summer 2015).
The dark, starry night skies of Fuerteventura are a real treat to experience!
