This excursion will take you sky high to enjoy a unique experience, as you encounter the highest peak in Spain: El Teide.
We will begin to ascend until we reach 2,370 m. above sea level. During the tour we will pass through different landscapes with wonderful views and traditional villages. We will cross the forest of Canarian pine until we reach Las Cañadas del Teide, where you will begin to understand that Tenerife is an island of contrasts.
Along the route we will make some stops so you can admire everything that this natural space offers. It was declared a National Park in 1954 with the aim of protecting this landscape of incredible beauty and great ecological value.
Later we will go to the base of the cable carwhere you can enjoy a magnificent view of the Ucanca Valley.
