It depends on the time of year. Although Extremadura boasts excellent weather almost all year round, the nights are usually cool in spring, autumn and even summer, so it is always advisable to wear jackets or long sleeves and pants. It is also a good idea to carry extra layers of clothing, just in case. Also, since it is an outdoor activity in the natural environment, we recommended carrying some insect repellent, especially during summer.
No, stargazing activity does not require assistance. However, if it is your first time observing the night skies, we advise getting the help of expert guides specialising in this field. They are trained to provide you with the necessary information, reading material, and instruments for stargazing while ensuring your safety as you move around unfamiliar places. It is the ideal way to enjoy your visit to the fullest.
