Roque de Los Muchachos

Night Photography Tour


Night photography tour around Roque de Los Muchachos and Caldera de Taburiente National Park where you can capture the beauty of the sky of La Palma with Abián San Gil, night and landscape professional photographer.


We will be walking around some interesting photography spots. Personal vehicle is required. This tour does not take place inside Roque de Los Muchachos Observatory, because access during the night is forbidden.


It is necessary to go to the activity with a digital camera that has the possibility to adjust parameters manually (mode M), because you'll need to use a long shutter speed. With regard to the lenses, the perfect one is an angular lens (around 16mm) with a large aperture (around f/2.8), although with basic kit lenses you will have no problem (18-55mm, 16-45mm, etc). Avoid telezoom lenses. It's necessary come with your own tripod. If you don't have a suitable one, you can rent a tripod when you book a tour with us.


A minimum of 4 people is required to guarantee departure. The maximum group size will be 10 people.


The tour will last 3 hours with a group of 10 people. With less people, the tour will last between 2 and 3 hours.
