The island tour Tenerife is a coastal excursión that will take you to visit the most famous places of the island; it is recommended for people who want to do an island tour but don’t want to travel to the mountains.
So first of all we pick you up from your accommodation in Tenerife south around 08:15 AM ; then we get the highway direction Santa Cruz and we reach the city of Candelaria in one hour; during our first stop we admire the famous cathedral of the black Madonna, patron saint of Canary Islands; in front of the church, in the main square, we can see nine big statues; these represent the “Menceys“, the aboriginal kings who ruled the island before the Spanish conquered it.
We continue our juorney heading north and we stop at the Humbolt viewpoint; from there we contemplate the beautiful valley of La Orotava, one of the most spectacular panoramas of the north; then we reach the town of La Orotava where we stop for a visit of its historical center; here we see well-preserved ancient buildings and find tipical products, feeling the real culture of people from Tenerife.
Then we head to another famous place of the island, Icod de Los Vinos, a tipical Canarian town; here we experience a traditional atmosphere, see the famous Dragon Tree and taste local specialities like wine and spirits.
Last but not least we go to the “Mirador de Garachico”, an observation platform from which we see Garachico; the eruption of volcano Trevejo in 1706 partly destroyed this town in 1706; lava flows reached the sea and formed natural pools which are nowadays the most known of Tenerife; the big rock in front of the village “Roque de Garachico” and the pools are the symbols of the area.
After this last stop we head to Tenerife south and we are back where we started the trip around 17:30; of course we will take you to the same spot where we picked you up.
