Mountain Tour of Teide: This full day excursion will take you to the very top of the Teide, the white mountain that gave its name to Tenerife, sacred to the Guanche aboriginal people and the highest mountain in Spain as well as the third highest volcano in the world. You will have also the chance of climbing to the very summit by cable car.
After being picked up from your resort our first stop will be the charming town of La Orotava with its traditional architecture and colourful courtyards and balconies. As we climb higher you can enjoy impressive views down over the valley and the northern coastline. Soon we'll climb beyond the tree-line and enter an almost dreamlike landscape of rock and dazzling light, until we reach the Llano de Ucanca from here we can admire the summit that stands 3,718 metres high. Here weather permitting you can catch a cable car to the summit – the view from the top is truly impressive - on a clear day you’ll be able to spot Gran Canaria, La Palma, La Gomera and El Hierro. There will also be time to have some lunch or a picnic before we heading back down to your resort.
