The Teide National Park is a magnificent natural wonder. Discover one of the world's tallest volcanoes and explore Tenerife's spectacular landscapes on this day trip from the north of the island.
Teide National Park Excursion Itinerary
Having been picked up from Puerto de la Cruz in the north of Tenerife, you'll head south to the centre of the Canary island, in the direction of the Cañadas del Teide: the Teide National Park. The volcanic landscapes that make up this magical place look like they could be on the moon - the view is breathtaking!
Your excursion will take you to visit the area surrounding Mount Teide itself. At 3,718 metres (12,198 feet) above sea level, it is the highest mountain in Spain and the third tallest volcano in the world! You'll spend four hours by the volcano with 2 hours of free time to take the cable car up to Teide's peak (not included), from which you'll enjoy incomparable views over the volcanic scenery below.
Rivers of lava from historic volcanic eruptions have moulded the contours of the island, creating valleys and incredible rock formations like the Roques de Garcia. Marvel at the views and discover the local flora and fauna, including fascinating plants that flower right up to the summit of Teide.
Enjoy stunning panoramic views over the Ucanca Valley from the feet of the volcano, before your tour comes to an end returning back to Puerto de la Cruz.
This excursion departs from Puerto de la Cruz. If you're staying in Candelaria, Las Caletillas, Santa Cruz de Tenerife, San Cristóbal de La Laguna, La Orotava or any of the other tourist zones in northern Tenerife, you'll have to make your own way to Puerto de la Cruz to be picked up from the nearest hotel.
If, alternatively, your accommodation is located in El Médano, Callao-El Paraíso, Ten Bel, Los Gigantes, Golf del Sur, La Caleta, Las Américas, Los Cristianos, Chayofa or any of the tourist areas in southern Tenerife, you should book our Teide National Park Day Trip from the south of the island.
