Kike Navarro – La Palma in pictures

La Palma Travel presents a photograph by La Palma starlight guide Kike Navarro every 14 days.

365 revolutions of the earth

Kike narrates the course of the year on the Canary Island of La Palma in the fortnightly photo series.

The Starlight Guide is the perfect partner for stargazing with a telescope, introduction to astronomy, courses or photo workshops in Spanish and English.

Those who go stargazing with him will experience constellations, planets and the vastness of the Milky Way at selected places on the isla bonita.

You can also book him for guided tours of the International Observatory of the Canary Islands on Roque de Los Muchachos.
