Experience the northern part of Tenerife and Mt. Teide National Park on this 8-hour tour. Explore the UNESCO-listed volcanic landscapes and see the famous Dragon Tree at Icod Los Vinos. Enjoy a panoramic view of the west coast and Spain`s highest peak at Mt. Teide. Discover fascinating features such as the volcanic plateau which was used as a filming location for the film, 'Planet of the Apes.'

What to expect?

Itinerary:

  • Depart your south Tenerife hotel (select hotels only) by coach and travel toward UNESCO-protected Mt. Teide National Park.
  • On route, enjoy spectacular views of Tenerife’s west coast and 12,200-foot (3,718-meter) Mt. Teide, Spain’s highest peak, and the park’s crowning glory.
  • Visit the village of Vilaflor, set in the pine-forested foothills, and absorb its cool air and quaint lanes and architecture. Then, drive through the forests to the volcanic plateau, a lunar-like plain that featured in movies like the Planet of the Apes and Clash of the Titans.
  • Next, traverse the Orotava Valley to Icod Los Vinos, famous for its wines and Drago Tree, the world’s oldest dragon tree. See this huge umbrella-shaped tree and learn about the reputedly healing powers of its red-colored sap, called ‘dragon’s blood.’
  • After free time for lunch (own expense), call at Garachico, a pretty, north-coast town that was Tenerife’s main port until a 1706 volcanic eruption.
  • View the old streets of mansions and monuments here before visiting Masca, a hamlet perched on a canyon ridge. With only about 120 inhabitants, this village was once a pirates’ hideout, and commands awe-inspiring views to La Gomera.
  • After absorbing the panoramas, your tour concludes with a hotel drop-off.
