See details of all Tenerife Excursions including prices and schedules.
Via Guia de Isora you will make you way up to Mount Teide and the National Park where there are some wonderful photo opportunities. Capture the ever changing landscape at various stop off points during the trip.
On to Icod famous for it’s wines, then through the evergreen Oratova valley to see the ancient Dragon tree. Then there is a lunch stop in Garachico which was detroyed by a volcanic eruption in 1706.
The last stop is Masca which was originally occupied by pirates. The pirates could hide and they had great views of La Gomera so they could see all the ships passing between the Islands. The village itself ifs very picturesque completely surrounded by mountains and cliffs, it is a reminder of a bye gone age.
