Star Hiking and Observation

La palma star stars observation hike hiking sky activities points of interestThe sky above “Isla bonita” is special, as every astronomer knows. Not for nothing is the largest telescope in the northern hemisphere and some other special measuring instruments on the Roque de los Muchachos. Even the layman will notice that you can observe more stars here than elsewhere. To keep it that way, there is a light protection law on La Palma. Luminous advertisement are subject to strict regulations, street lanterns have a special orange light, radiate towards the ground and large disco headlights are prohibited!
La Palma was also recognized as the world’s first starlight reserve in April 2012.
With the App Night Sky Lite you can easily identify star constellations and on www.blue-marble.de you can find a map with low-light points to see a clear starry sky.
