Full description
Explore the diverse geography and geology of Tenerife on a full-day tour to 4 distinct landscapes around the island’s tallest mountain. Following a pick-up from your hotel, transfer to the National Heritage Site of Mt. Teide and the Teide National Park. Enjoy breathtaking views of the island’s west coast. Travel through local villages, such as Vilaflor, and see magnificent pine forests before going to the plateau of the volcano. Marvel at the lunar landscape that has been used as the location for films such as “Planet of the Apes” and “Clash of the Titans.” Drive through the Orotava Valley to Icod Los Vinos, famous for its wines. See the legendary drago tree, known for its mystical powers. Stop for a Canarian lunch (own expense), before transferring to Garachico, a local town destroyed by the volcanic eruption of 1706. Next, experience the magic of Masca, and enjoy fabulous views of La Gomera. With only around 120 inhabitants, Masca was the traditional hideout for pirates and their contraband stolen from the ships from La Gomera.

A wonderful tour to discover the main sites of the island. The 15€ optional lunch was very nice too. We couldn’t hear the guide very well but he never stops...however it is very well organised and timings are impeccable. The road up from Masca is impressive but I had every confidence in the driver! Beautiful views, amazing scenery, fascinating geology, picturesque villages and also glimpse of the past eruptions and the black volcanic rock left behind! I thoroughly recommend this excursion. Do not try to drive it yourself!

This is an 8 hour trip. You can basically travel through half the island. Thus, you get to experience a lot. You see breathtaking views several times. Above all, you see Teide, from below. The journey up by cable car does not catch up, you have to do it on another tour. The lunch was reasonably priced. Afterwards, those who want to try local drinks. Next to lunch you get to see the costume tree, fantastic. For those of you who think that Tenerife is just sun and beach life, this trip is highly recommended. Your stay gets a completely different value. The tour guide was very professional. Just keep in mind that the journey involves many hours by bus on crooked mountain roads, but in return you get to see the beauty of the landscape!

Brilliant day trip and incredibly well organised. The guide gave fascinating facts about both the North and South of the island. Plenty to see, and memories to last forever. Such as the pirate village of Masca, almost inaccessible (only 70 residents) high up in the mountains and the spectacular Mt Teide and volcanic crater. Jaw dropping scenery wherever you looked!
