Astrophototour
Group or customized stargazing with a powerful 40 cm diameter professional telescope in the Teide National Park. At over 2300m of altitude where the sky is among the clearest and darkest in the world, you will be able to see live objects such as galaxies, nebulae, the moon and the planets of the solar system and learn all their secrets. Unlike other agencies in the area that offer "mass" tours of this type, with small groups of people it will be possible to interact better and explain this wonderful science in detail, and I will also be able to answer any questions thanks to my experience gained in 25 years of collaboration with an astronomical observatory in northern Italy. I also propose basic and advanced workshops to learn astronomical photography for the most passionate who already know astronomy and want to expand their skills and get more satisfaction in this activity.

The vanilla cultivation and the edible forest
Come and discover one of the most precious and popular aromas in the world: vanilla. Where does it come from? How do we produce these cans with a nice fragrance? During your visit to Finca la Canopea, you will discover how, in a regenerated subtropical ecosystem, the vanilla acclimates to it. During the bloom season (between April and July), you will witness the polling of the flowers, the harvest of the pods and/or their preparation. My modest vanilla production is unique in the Canaries. In Finca la Canopea, we are excited to transform a desert into a rich and varied ecosystem of many edible plants. I will start the tour by showing you how, based on permaculture techniques, we re-create natural habitat where man and nature find their place. It is in this pleasant environment that you will discover how the vanilla acclimatized there and how I have the ambition of cultivating it on a larger scale. IMPORTANT: To make it easier for visits, I decided to separate languages into two groups. One in French and/or Spanish and one in English. CHECK THE LANGUAGE OF THE VISIT WHEN YOU SIGN UP. Thank you The visit adapts to everyone from 12 years. Private tours can not be book automatilly but by contacting me. Feel free to contact me to book any private tour. Pascal
