Mount Teide & Las Cañadas National Park

Magnificent Mount Teide is one of the largest volcanoes in the world and affords breathtaking views across Tenerife. The spectacular journey to the summit takes you through scented pine forest, across a unique lunar landscape and through giant craters.

The unique scenery of Las Cañadas National Park and Mount Teide has featured in many Hollywood movies including Star Wars and you'll find out why on this fantastic 6-hour tour.

After being collected from your pick-up point in Southern Tenerife, your excursion begins with a scenic ascent from sea-level to 2370 metres into Las Cañadas National Park which is formed around an enormous crater.

The journey takes you through Canarian pine forest that lead to ancient lava flows, the bizarre lunar landscape at Las Cañadas and you'll also pass through picturesque villages including Vilaflor, renowned as the highest and one of the oldest villages in Spain.

At the heart of the national park is stunning Mount Teide, the third largest volcano in the world. Enjoy the beautiful views of rugged Ucanca Valley before taking the optional cable car (ticket payable locally - approx €27) to the 3350 metre summit of Mount Teide.

Here you can experience wondrous views across Tenerife and on a clear day you can even see the other Canary Islands. The sulphuric fumes rising from the crater are evidence that there remains volcanic activity deep inside this dormant volcano.

Descend back into the Ucanca Valley and pass through one of the biggest craters in the world, before descending through Chío village and on to the beaches of Las Américas.
