Leave the beaches behind and enjoy a full-day shore excursion exploring beautiful Teide National Park with a private guide! Admire some of the inlands most stunning scenery on a journey through the lava-filled landscapes of La Esperanza to the slopes of Mount Teide one of Spains tallest volcanoes. Visit the summit by cable car, if you wish, and then walk around the area known as Las Cañadas, where enchanting rock formations have provided movie settings for Clash of the Titans and more.
Leave the Tenerife port by private air-conditioned minibus, and travel to Teide National Park, a UNESCO World Heritage site that surrounds Mt Teide, a volcano located at the heart of the island. One of Spains tallest volcanoes at 12,198 feet (3,718 meters), Mt Teide makes for an impressive visit, and its views over the island are incredible.
Gaze out of the window as you listen to your guide's commentary during the drive through La Esperanza, an area made up of volcanic lava. After traveling to a height of around 7,776 feet (2,370 meters), stop for photos and soak up the views. If you want to continue to the summit, take a ride on the cable car (own expense) and ascend on your own to discover panoramas that stretch over the whole island.
Leaving the volcano in the early afternoon, make the journey to an alpine-esque area of the park known as Las Cañadas. Walk around the trails with your private guide and marvel at the landscape, with its rivers of petrified lava and eroded rock formations, broken up by colorful wild flowers. Hear how the area is used as a filming set for TV commercials and movies such as the 2010 Clash of the Titans, and learn how the area has become one of Tenerifes top visitor attractions.
Later, return to your minibus and travel back to the Tenerife port where your shore excursion finishes with drop-off by your guide.
