Overview
Explore the villages and landscapes around Tenerife’s Mt Teide and the Masca valley on a full-day tour! After leaving southern Tenerife, make your way through the UNESCO World Heritage-listed Teide National Park where otherworldly volcanic sights abound. Pass through Vilaflor, one of Spain’s highest villages, stop for photos at the island’s famous dragon tree, and then enjoy plenty of free time to explore Garachico and Masca — two gorgeous Canarian villages tucked into the hills. With much much more to see and discover with this trip you will not be disapointed.

What to Expect
Leave your Tenerife hotel by air-conditioned coach and journey into the UNESCO World Heritage Site, Teide National Park, where lava craters and hills surround volcanic Mt. Teide. View the 12,198-foot (3,718-meter) peak from Vilaflor, one of Spain’s highest villages, and continue to Icod de los Vinos town to see its celebrated Dragon Tree, thought to be nearly 1,000 years old. After taking photos here, travel to the north-coast village of Garachico to take in its rugged lava landscapes. Then, head for the hamlet of Masca, where houses line a palm-coated ridge between steep-sided valleys. Stroll around both villages to savor their setting and atmosphere, and if you wish, enjoy lunch (own expense) at one of the restaurants there. Next, travel back to South Tenerife via the beautifully located coastal town of Santiago del Teide, stopping to admire the Los Gigantes cliffs (Wednesdays only) along the way. Your tour then concludes with a drop-off at your hotel.

Great overview of the island and some of its most important spots. Antonio was an impressive guide — he gave us all the information we needed to know and more in 4 languages! We experienced some trouble with the bus which required us to take taxis from the Masca Valley back to

Amazing trip, worth money. You can see a lot in this trip. From teide to masca. Also giude makes a lot of coffee or photo stops. So really recommend if you are lazy to drive, especially in Masca, try this excursion. You can also meet a lot of interesting people.

The view of “El Pico del Teide” is stunning. And the route towards Masca is amazing. Respect for our bus driver. Our guide, bilingual Flemish / French did a great job. We ‘re really glad we took this trip. Bart & Martine
