Guided excursions to Mount Teide
Mount Teide is the highest peak in Spain and the one that crowns the island of Tenerife. To get to know it we offer you different options:
- Bus excursion to Teide and Masca to visit the Teide National Park and the iconic village of Masca
- Bus excursion to Teide at night to observe the stars
- 8 hours private excursion to get to know Teide in depth
- Bus tours to Teide and nearby villages to get to know Tenerife in depth
The Teide National Park is the most important point of interest for adventurers in Tenerife. Here you can walk among rocks, volcanic landscapes and enjoy a very particular type of flora and fauna. Scientists from different places come to explore its surface as it is very similar to the surface of the planet Mars. Don’t miss the opportunity to stroll through a special territory that seems to have been brought from another world.
The park is home to an astrophysics station of great importance for science. We are talking about the Teide observatory, with excellent astronomical quality. Here you will find specialised equipment for observing and studying the behaviour of the sun. In addition to the solar telescopes, it houses different equipment for observing the night sky. If you come at night you can observe space and admire up to 83 of the 88 constellations that exist.
We invite you to visit the park with your friends and family. Enjoy its volcanic landscapes and beautiful views. From the top of Mount Teide you can see the whole island and some neighbouring islands. There is also a cable car that takes you up to an altitude of 3,500 metres. Breathe fresh air in the park and capture beautiful images in photographs.
Bus tours in Vilaflor, Garachico and Masca
Now we want to tell you about three of the most popular towns near Teide. Firstly, we have the village of Masca. This is a beautiful village in the northwest of Tenerife famous for its peaceful atmosphere. It is home to a great biodiversity, which is why it has been declared a Protected Area for the preservation of its ecosystem. In Masca you will find beautiful valleys, mountains and cliffs around a rural village with traditional architecture. You must visit the Masca ravine and discover its paths that lead you to the sea. Right at the foot of the ravine is Masca Bay, a beautiful beach that can only be reached by boat or by going down the ravine. If you want to visit this beautiful beach, we have boat trips in Puerto de La Cruz to go to Masca Bay, swim in its waters, snorkel and enjoy life in the sea without worries.
Another beautiful village in the northwest of Tenerife is Garachico, which awaits you with its Canarian traditions and a history to tell. Due to the destruction it suffered from a volcano, it still retains its traditional essence. There you will find well-preserved historical heritage. The viewpoint of Garachico is an obligatory stop on the road from where you can see the village of Garachico from the heights and its beautiful Roque in the sea.
Don’t leave without visiting Vilaflor, the village at the highest point of Tenerife. From here you can see the whole island with the Teide peak in the background. In this village you can stroll through historic streets with many places of cultural and artistic interest. Also here you will find the famous “Paisaje Lunar de Vilaflor”, this is a beautiful place with white clay cones that reminds us of the surface of the moon.
Visit the modern cities of Tenerife by bus
In our list of bus tours in Puerto de la Cruz you will find one that takes you to the capital of the island, the city of La Laguna and also takes you to the charming village of Taganana. With this bus tour we want to introduce you to both sides of the island, its urban development and its rural traditions.
The capital of Tenerife is Santa Cruz de Tenerife with a well preserved old town. You can stroll through its streets and visit colonial houses and churches. Enjoy its urban development which contrasts with Tenerife’s historic buildings. This city receives many cruise ships, which gives it great tourist importance and a lot of commercial movement.
On the other hand, we have La Laguna, a city declared a World Heritage Site due to its artistic, cultural and historical wealth. The first university in the Canary Islands was founded here, the University of La Laguna, which is why it is known as the university city of Tenerife.
After getting to know these cities, we will take a walk through the rural park of Anaga . It is located in the northeast of Tenerife and is situated in the oldest region of the island. It is a fantastic natural environment full of forests and mountains. There are a number of villages that live in harmony with the park’s forest environment. One of these villages is Taganana, which we will take you to on this fabulous bus tour in Tenerife. Get to know its traditions and magical landscapes.
Bus tour of Tenerife’s enchanted villages
We have more for you to discover on the island. This time we want to tell you about different villages with great tourist interest that you should visit during your holidays in Puerto de la Cruz.
First of all we have La Candelaria. Here you will find the church of our patron saint “Virgen de la Candelaria” and therefore, it is the village with the most religious activity on the island. We also have La Orotava, another place which is a must on our bus tours in Tenerife. It is a beautiful village in the foothills of the Teide in an enchanted valley. Enjoy its well-preserved Canarian traditions and historical monuments.
Another town you should visit in the north of Tenerife is Erjos, surrounded by mountains and volcanic landscapes. It is located in the Teno Rural Park and is home to a lifestyle that is perfectly adapted to the volcanic environment.
Another place you should visit is Icod de Los Vinos . Here you can enjoy the traditional streets and hamlets. But what makes it most popular is the presence of the thousand-year-old dragon tree. This is the oldest specimen of dragon tree in the world and you can visit it in Icod de los Vinos.
Finally, we will take you toLos Gigantes, with a singular attraction. Here you will find the immense Los Gigantes Cliffs, which give a mysterious essence to the west coast of Tenerife. The indigenous Guanches christened them “La muralla del Diablo” (The Devil’s Wall). The sea surrounding these cliffs is kept full of pleasure boats that take tourists from all over the world to enjoy the peace of the sea, the beaches and different water activities. If you wish, you can visit the cliffs with our boat trips to Los Gigantes Tenerife.
