This driving tour through the countryside highlights many of the island's northernmost treasures.

Heading north from the pier, you will soon be enraptured by the beauty of the Orotava Valley, a fertile land fed by clear water from the neighboring mountains. Vineyards and banana plantations blanket the hills, giving rise to Orotava's reputation as the Garden of Tenerife. You'll look down upon the valley in all its glory from Humboldt Viewpoint, a favorite place to stop and take in the panoramas. It was named for Alexander von Humboldt, a German naturalist who visited the Canary Islands in 1799 and influenced Charles Darwin.

Then, it's on to the popular resort city of Puerto de la Cruz, where you will see the famed Plaza del Charco, which has been a lively meeting place for centuries. Protected by two breakwaters, picturesque Puerto, as its known locally, is a delight, with brightly colored boats in the harbor and plenty of palm trees shading the streets. Puerto also has several fine beaches, especially Playa Jardín, a volcanic black sand beach with a vibrant garden running parallel to it.

Following the narrow coastal roads along the seawall, you will drive toward San Pedro, stopping for a photo stop along the dramatic coastline before returning to the pier where your tour concludes.

Please note: This tour is mostly panoramic and includes limited walking, mainly at the guests' discretion during photo stops. The tour is available to wheelchair guests who have a collapsible wheelchair, are able to make their own way on and off the coach and have a companion to assist them. A jacket and comfortable shoes are suggested. The itinerary is subject to change depending on weather conditions.
