Discover Tenerife’s spell-binding landscape by visiting the cliffs of Los Gigantes, as well as the islands’s picturesque towns: Icod de los Vinos, La Orotava and Candelaria.

Itinerary

Begin your day trip by boarding a comfortable air-conditioned coach and will heading along the north-west coast of Tenerife.

The first stop of the tour is to the striking cliffs of Los Gigantes. These huge walls which plummet into the Atlantic Ocean sometimes measure over 600 meters high. In fact, the old local inhabitants of Tenerife called it the “Wall of Hell”.

Continue to the north of the island until you get to Icod de los Vinos. Here, you’ll discover its beautiful 800-year old Dragon tree, one of the oldest trees in the Canary Islands. This autochtonous species measures nearly 18 meters high and is declared a “National Monument” in Spain.

Next, visit La Orotava, one of the most picturesque localities in Tenerife. Explore its Old Town, home to the surprising red dome of La Concepción Church, one of the most iconic landmarks of La Orotava. You will also marvel at the beautiful façade of the Casa de los Balcones (House with the Balconies), built in a traditional Canarian style.

After enjoying some free time to have lunch at your own leisure, you will set off to Candelaria. Situated on the eastern coastline, this city is named after the patron saint of the Canary Islands. You will visit the basilica with the same name: Basilica de Nuestra Señora de la Candelaria. This temple is one of the most important religious buildings of the archipelago. While you wander around the town, you will learn about the history of the menceyes (kings) of Tenerife, depicted by various sculptures by the sea.

The tour comes to an end in Candelaria. You will be driven back to your hotel.
