This extraordinary tour visits three distinctively different cities in the scenic northeastern corner of Tenerife and includes wine tasting.
Depart from the pier and drive inland to San Cristóbal de La Laguna in the idyllic Aguere Valley. Deemed a World Heritage Site, the city is immensely historic and served as the island's capital until 1723. Many of the buildings of this time have been meticulously preserved, which you will see during a walking tour along the most picturesque streets and around charming plazas. La Laguna, as it is known locally, is also a cultural and religious center, as San Fernando University and the Bishop's Palace are located here.
Continuing on, you will travel further inland for a visit to Tacoronte, a village nestled in one of the island's most fertile regions. Apples, figs and other fruit trees are abundant, but it's the flavorful grape that has brought Tacoronte its greatest acclaim as a wine producer. You will have the opportunity to sample its finest vintages at the renowned Bodega Alvaro, before departing for El Sauzal.
Once you arrive at this coastal village, you will tour La Baranda wine museum, where you will learn about the fascinating history of wine production throughout the Canary Islands. The museum is housed in a 17th-century farmhouse with a terrace offering magnificent views of the northern coastline.
At the conclusion of your visit in El Sauzal, your coach awaits to transfer you back to the pier.
