It's important to be dressed warmly to avoid an unpleasant experience!
  • Comfortable warm clothing.

  • If it is windy (which unfortunately it often is in Lanzarote) it is a good idea to wear something windproof over the clothing.
  • RED light headlamp. We have lamps if you don't have your own. 
  • Mats and/or Blankets to keep you warm and lie down (we also provide blankets if necessary)
  • We have chairs but if you prefer your own please bring it.
  • Binoculars if you have any, 10x50 recommended or stronger. We have some binoculars to loan during the activity.

  • Remember that in Canarias, the seasons might not be like mainland Spain or your country. Even though the days might be warm, the nights can get chilly and can be uncomfortable if you are not suitably dressed.
