The beautiful towns of Masca, Garachico and Icod de los Vinos will leave a long-lasting impression on this day trip which will also give you the chance to see the Teide National Park. Unmissable!
Day Trip to Teide, Icod & Garachico
From Puerto de la Cruz, we’ll head to the incredible Teide National Park, named as a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 2007.
You’ll explore this volcanic landscape and discover the surprising rock formations created by the lava oozing out of the Teide volcano. At over 12,000 feet tall (3718 metres) this is the highest summit in Spain.
Next, we’ll travel through the town of Santiago del Teide in the direction of Masca. In this town, surrounded by rugged mountain scenery, you’ll discover some stories related to pirates who, according to certain legends, hid great amounts of treasures in these lands. Next, we’ll head to Garachico, characterised by its volcanic natural pools and typical Canary architecture.
You’ll have approximately an hour of free time to have lunch (not included) and then we’ll head to the nearby town of Icod de los Vinos, where you’ll see the age-old dragon tree. This tree has become a symbol of the island, but do you know it’s history?
From Icod de los Vinos, we’ll return to Puerto de la Cruz.
Day Trip to Teide
If you have less time and only want to visit the Teide National Park, you can book this trip from north Tenerife.
This day trip leaves from Puerto de la Cruz. If you are staying in Candelaria, Las Caletillas, Santa Cruz de Tenerife, San Cristóbal de La Laguna, La Orotava or other tourist areas in the north of Tenerife, you should make your own way to Puerto de la Cruz so we can pick you up from a more central location. You’ll be picked up between 7:30 and 8:30 am. When you make your booking you’ll have to select where you’d like to be picked up from. After booking, you’ll receive an email with the exact pick up location and time. If you do not receive this, or would like more information, do not hesitate to contact us.
If, on the other hand, you are staying in El Médano, Callao-El Paraíso, Ten Bel, Los Gigantes, Golf del Sur, La Caleta, Las Américas, Los Cristianos, Chayofa or any other tourist area in south Tenerife, you can book this tour, which is very similar but leaves from the south of the island.
