Description:

Mount Teide, the highest of Spain, is not to be missed when you come to Tenerife for a holiday. Although it can be seen from all parts of the island, the experience is truly different when you are up there. The whole area is basically a giant volcanic wonderland with the enormous Las Cañadas crater (almost 18km in diameters) attracting geologists and volcanologists from around the world.

Starting our journey from Teide National Park at 2300m, we will follow the footsteps of Humboldt and journey through awe-inspiring volcanic rock formations, unique plants and breathtaking views. Hiking duration is about 2.5 hours.

Afterwards, we drive down to La Orotava for an hour walking along its cobbled streets, romantic squares and its pretty houses with typical Canarian wooden balconies.
