The islands are perfectly situated for a spot of star gazing with beautiful and light-pollution free clear skies – the sky above the region is even government protected. Learn about the constellations and discover them in the night’s sky – at 28º in the northern latitude, you’ll be able to see all the constellations in the northern hemisphere and a fair few of them from the southern hemisphere too. If you’re interested in learning more about the science involved with star gazing, visit the renowned Roque de los Muchachos observatory. Just check their website for visitor information – and note that visits are only in the day time!
