  • From Playa de las América: Half-Day Jeep Safari Tour

    2. From Playa de las América: Half-Day Jeep Safari Tour

    If you don't have time to visit everything while in Playa de las América then this tour may be the solution. Discover the Teide National Park during one morning and enjoy the beautiful route to the park. You will have enough time to explore the interesting places in this unique environment and still return to your hotel for lunch. Do not miss the experience to see the singular volcano that is incredibly unique.   Furthermore, during your ascent to the summit, discover the hidden face of southern Tenerife, entering its towns and most singular places. Drivers will be there for you during the route and will inform you at each stop about the visiting areas, offering you unique stories and interesting facts. Your are guaranteed to have a good time.

    It is good if you prefer purely sightseeing tour with not too much info on the places. And better if you come with your own group of people (friends/families). Very little interaction with other tourists. They stops at lots of tourist centres for coffee and toilet breaks. Individual jeep driver cannot give explanation of what we are visiting at all. What happened was at every stop, they will gather all visitors from a few jeeps and one tour guide will give explanation of the places. The guy giving info is great. Group (combination of a few jeeps) is too big, I prefer smaller one for more personal interaction.

  • El Teide: Full-Day Road Cycling Route on Fridays

    3. El Teide: Full-Day Road Cycling Route on Fridays

    Join the dream of every cyclist, crowning the longest climb in Europe and the most frequented by the international pack. Head to La Camella to start warming up for about 15 kilometers. The journey to Granadilla will be very comfortable and will allow you to loosen your legs a little. The climb is from 12 kilometers to 5 - 6% of slope. Once in Vilaflor, tackle the most complicated part, a 14-kilometer climb without rest. The average of the ramps is 8% but the main obstacle is the acclimatization due to the decrease of the pressure of the oxygen, as you climb about 2,100 on the way to Retamar. Descend to the Teide National Park, the highest area of the island Tenerife and Spain, just 8 kilometers to the National Parador, a place chosen by professional cyclists for their preseason. Head roughly 45 kilometers down to Playa de las Americas, enjoying the views.

Travel through the town of Vilaflor, located 1,414 meters above the sea. It is the least populated municipality on the island and has no coast, and was where the 1st Canarian saint, Hermano Pedro, was born in the 17th century. Continue to Puerto de la Cruz to explore the 1st city to introduce tourism in the late 19th century.

Top guide who was also able to drive well in the mountains. Our Flemish guide/driver from Affligem has a lot of experience and knowledge. Wonderful jeep safari and learned a lot about Tenerife. big thanks

It was really nice. Great introduction to and explanation of how to behave in heavy waves. Everything worked great and both turtles and dolphins were seen. Overall very successful but also exhausting.

Great experience, we could see the dolphins up close but the turtles were playing hide and seek. Thank you to Arturo and to all the team who took care of it. WE RECOMMEND!
