This accessible excursion takes you to the National Park of Las Canadas to visit Mount Teide, the highest peak in Spain. You will explore some truly spectacular landscapes in this park, which is in fact the interior of the Teide’s crater, and see unique endemic flora and fauna. In June 2007 UNESCO awarded the park World Heritage Site status.
Depart from the pier/hotel on a panoramic drive that will take you through Tenerife, the largest of the seven islands from the Canary Island archipelago, located right in the middle between Gran Canaria, La Gomera and La Palma.
A scenic ascent will take you from sea-level to 2370 metres into Las Cañadas National Park, formed around an enormous crater. The journey takes you through Canarian pine forest that lead to ancient lava flows and then the bizarre lunar landscape at Las Cañadas. This unique scenery has been featured in many Hollywood movies including Star Wars. Also pass through picturesque villages including Vilaflor, renowned as the highest and one of the oldest villages in Spain.
At the heart of the national park is stunning Mount Teide, the third largest volcano in the world. You will be able to view a part of the Mirador Los Roques de García where you will find the famous Roque Chinchado (known as God’s Finger) and see the Ucanca Valley with its lava fields.
We will stop for lunch at a local restaurant in one of the villages. Finally, you will descend back into the Ucanca Valley and you will pass through one of the biggest craters in the world, before descending through Chío village and on to the beaches of Las Américas.
This tour does not require a high amount of walking or wheeling, and it can also be completely tailor-made based on each person preferences. The itinerary also avoids steps and it follows a mostly flat path along the Tour.
