The island is a real treasure trove of natural wonders that cry out to be explored during your Tenerife holiday.
It’s not just all about the sun and the beach – the amazing variety of excursions on offer means you can experience a different type of holiday here in one of the Canaries’ most beautiful and diverse islands.
The multitude of excursions in Tenerife includes trips by coach to witness breathtaking natural scenery, challenging hikes through mountainous terrain, romantic evenings of star-gazing from the majestic Mount Teide, and even a full island tour for those who simply want to see it all.
This spectacular excursion is guaranteed to be the highlight of your holiday in Tenerife and will live in your memories forever.
A fleet of Jeeps will whisk you to the top of the volcano where you will enjoy Champagne at sunset with wonderful views of the other Canary Islands.
A four course dinner follows before the highlight of the evening - stargazing with a qualified astronomer. Be sure to take a warm jumper as the mountain can be very chilly at night.
An organised excursion to the neighbouring island of La Gomera is a fantastic way of getting a real flavour of life in the Canary Islands away from the main tourist resorts.
This quiet island is a forty minute ferry ride from the port in Los Cristianos with plenty of opportunities to see schools of pilot whales and dolphins in their natural habitat.
Touring the island itself you will experience the splendour of the Garajonay National Park and the lush, verdant swathes of rain forest that adorn the slopes of the central mountains.
A trip to Tenerife would not be complete without a visit to the peak of the highest mountain in Spanish territory.
The majestic heights of Mount Teide were declared a National Park in 1954 and consist of some of the most diverse landscapes on earth.
Either drive yourself or relax in a luxury coach as you move through the fragrant pine forests, across the startling volcanic moonscapes to the incredible plateau at the very highest point in Spain.
As far as natural attractions in the Canaries go it is hard to beat the sheer majesty of the breathtaking Masca Valley, where Tenerife's primitive inhabitants the Guanches first landed.
Located in the Teno region on the west coast of Tenerife, this lush rift in the landscape cuts a spectacular swathe down through the hills to the ocean.
There are a number of traditional restaurants half way down the valley and walkers can arrange for a water taxi to meet them when they reach the beach at the end of the official trail.
For those wishing to see as much of Tenerife as they can, excursions are available throughout the island.
Good deals can be found with Viajes Teide who offer a range of island tours by air-conditioned coach, visiting sites such as Teide National Park, Puerto de la Cruz (home of Loro Parque), Orotava Valley, Icod de los Viños, Garachico and picturesque Masca.
These coach trips are one of the best ways to discover the natural wonders Tenerife has to offer – and with such a wide variety available, there is an itinerary to suit the whole family.
