El Teide is the third highest and most voluminous volcanic structure on the planet (following Mauna loa and Mauna kea in Hawaii). Moreover, it’s the highest mountain in the Canary Islands and of all Spain! El Teide, at 3718m above sea level, is the most popular tourist attraction on the island. El Teide reached a height of 4500m in the past but, since it erupted many eons ago, a caldera was created and it eroded to its current size.
The excursion goes up the Aguamansa road to the “Parque Nacional del Teide“. Along the route, you will make some stops so you can admire all that this natural space has to offer.
Optional Teide cable car: climb up to La Rambleta station, located at 3550m, where you will be just a few meters from the highest peak in Spain.
We will stop at a local restaurant, El Portillo, for lunch or a picnic (not included). Afterward, we will go to the base of the cable car where you can enjoy a magnificent view of the Valle de Ucanca. On the way back, we will stop for a short break and visit the Roques de García, situated in the heart of Tenerife’s National Park, which features an iconic image of the island.

Would you like to have a fun day in search of a little bit of adrenaline? Thanks to its great rides, Siam Park has been seven times the best water park in the world according to Tripadvisor.
If you choose to go, we recommend you visit the wave palace – a huge pool with a perfect wave for surfing that can reach 3 meters. The most popular ride is the Tower of Power with a 28-meter high vertical drop that will accelerate your heart rate. You can also slide through an amazing aquarium tunnel with sea animals swimming around.
Another interesting thing to remember is that Siam Park is the first Green Water Park. Seawater is pumped into the facility through its own water treatment system. From there, it’s then heated and turned into freshwater.
For many tourists, Masca is the number one destination when it comes to unique views (check our guide if you want to visit it). It’s a perfect destination for nature lovers, adventure seekers, and outdoor activities enthusiasts. The hidden village of Masca inhabits only about a hundred people. It has been accessible by car for the last decade, so you should visit it for sure. NOTE: the road is very narrow and there are usually quite a few cars, so if you are not an experienced driver better take a taxi or a bus.
Exotic fruits like mangoes, passion fruit, papayas, and avocados grow there which enhances the visit with its beautiful colors and smells. The surrounding scenery offers unspoiled nature: green forests, palm trees, and Canarian animals. To conclude, Masca is the perfect place to find yourself in nature, far from the busy life of the island.
There is a hike from the Masca village through the barranco to the ocean. The views are completely different from what you can usually see in Tenerife. You can reach the coast by hiking down and up the valley. As the access is limited check the website for the permit or simply book your excursion with a tour company.
