Travel to Tenerife
Upon arrival in Tenerife, you will be met at the airport and transferred by coach to your hotel.
In the morning we recommend that you get your bearings with a leisurely stroll through Puerto de la Cruz, which has a great selection of bars, restaurants and cafes and is surrounded by several beaches.
After lunch why not relax by the pool or take a stroll down the beach at Playa Jardin.
Santa Cruz & La Laguna
On day 3 you will take a half day tour of Santa Cruz. After breakfast you will travel to the famous sea port which is one of Spain’s busiest and is the joint capital of the Canary Islands. This city was recently named one of the best five places in the world to live by “The Guardian” newspaper.
You will then move on to the UNESCO World Heritage site of La Laguna. Here you will see its impressive cathedral and the old colonial city architecture.
Icod de los Vinos & Las Americas
On day 4 you will journey around the island for a full day’s excursion. Your first port of call will be the village of Icod de los Vinos on the west coast, which is famous for the Canary Islands Dragon Tree. This subtropical tree-like plant is the natural emblem of Tenerife. Continue to Playa de Las Americas for some free time, with views of the spectacular Los Gigantes Cliffs en route.
Basilica de la Candelaria
In the afternoon, you'll visit the Basilica of Candelaria, to view the famous statue of the Black Madonna and bronze statues of the ‘Guanches’. The Guanches were the original inhabitants of the Canary Islands and while it is generally believed that they no longer exist as a distinct ethnicity, many traces of their culture remain.
Day 5 will be free to enjoy at your leisure. We recommend you take some time to explore the town of Puerto de la Cruz, which has an excellent range of cafes and bars. There are many other attractions outside the town centre, particularly the botanical gardens, which have a large range of tropical and subtropical trees, plants and flowers.
You will begin day 6 with a morning excursion to the volcanic Mount Teide National Park, which is dominated by the highest peak in Spain, Mount Teide itself. Along the way you will pass through the evergreen valley of La Orotava. The soil here is home to some very rare flora due to the lava flows on the flanks of the mountain. After, you will return to your hotel in time for lunch.
The afternoon is free to spend at your leisure.
On your final day you are free to relax and enjoy your surroundings. Why not take a walk to Puerto de la Cruz for some last-minute souvenirs or visit Loro Parque (Parrot Park), which is a theme park and zoo that is amongst the largest in the world.
You will be transferred to the airport with guide assistance for your flight home.
