We offer this night sky activity at our headquarters, in a private place that has services such as WC, tables, chairs, terrace. The tour is basically astronomical. Upon receiving clients we give them a brief explanation of Menorca and its commitment as a biosphere reserve to sustainability. We explain what it also means to be a "Starlight" territory, reserve and destination, which has the night sky protected. Next we teach the virtues of the natural landscape where they are found. The highlight of the activity is the observation of the night sky through laser pointers, astronomical binoculars and telescopes.
