Experience the sunset over the island and surrounding volcanos from a remote volcano top and then stargaze from the inside of the volcano crater - unique and unforgettable experience! As well you will find and track stars and planets in the sky + learn a bit more about stargazing. From the meeting point, you will have to drive your cars to a remote volcano in the area. Parked on a volcano we will start with a ~800m hike on a track to reach the summit of a volcano (as it is impossible to drive all the way we will park cars midway). From the top, you will experience the end of the sunset over the island and be able to see over the island and the ocean. After the sunset, we will start to walk down from the peak and walk inside the volcano crater where it is completely dark to spend some time looking at the stars and star constellations in the sky. We will have an amazing 360 view on the stars with no visible light from surroundings and almost 0 light pollution. During the experience, we will take a look at stars and to the moon (when it will be visible), I will show some sky objects and explain what you can see with a naked eye, what you can't see and why. As well - show you how you can super easily find and track stars, planets and other objects in the sky using a cool app.
Avid stargazing enthusiast - actively doing it for more than 2 years as a hobby because night sky amazes and interest me. I love looking at stars and planets via a telescope, take pictures of them to see star constellations. We will take a look at stars and to the moon (when it will be visible). I will show you a cool mobile app to track and understand the stars & objects in the sky, explain how astrophotos are taken and what you can see with a naked eye or a telescope and what is impossible.
If a transfer (Hotel -> Volcano -> Hotel) is needed, it can be arranged separately. Please inquire about it before the…
After a meeting here, we will drive to a remote volcano in the area. We will park halfway on it and walk on a dirt track from there to reach the top of the volcano - to experience the sunset over the mountains and island and later walk inside the volcano crater for stargazing. After the experience, we will use flashlights and walk to nearby parked cars and drive our cars off the volcano.
Hiking appropriate shoes and clothes - we will walk on a rocky dirt track to reach the top for the sunset
Have a worm clothes as nights are cold and it is very windy at the top of the volcano. Please be 10 min early, otherwise, we will be late to experience sunset light over the mountains.
