Travel into the spectacular mountains of northeastern Tenerife and revel in the beauty of its historic villages.

Depart from the pier and drive along the dramatic coastline toward the village of San Andres and up into the wilds of the Anaga Mountains, which were formed by a volcanic eruption millions of years ago. Much of the rugged landscape is untouched by development and boasts a rich botanical wealth. You will stop briefly to take in the panoramic views at one of the highest points here and then proceed along the winding mountain road to Taganana, one of Tenerife's oldest villages.

Hidden away in a small valley by the sea, remote Taganana has preserved its traditions, architecture and way of life over the centuries. One of its greatest treasures is the Nuestra Señora de las Nieves (Our Lady of the Snows) church, one of the oldest on the island. Be sure to note the revered 16th-century triptych inside. Then, for a taste of the region's gustatory pleasures, sample locally produced wine, goat cheese and bread at a traditional restaurant.

Heading inland, you will travel through the Anaga Massif, an ecologically important area known for its sheer cliffs, laurel forests, and bio-diversity. At lofty Pico del Inglés, you will have incredible views north and south. Before long, you will arrive in San Cristóbal de La Laguna, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The streets in this highly valued historic city center have hardly changed since the 16th century. Hundreds of historic buildings have been preserved and the city exudes culture, giving it a distinct character.

Following your time in San Cristóbal de La Laguna, you will rejoin your coach and travel back to the pier where your tour concludes.

Please note: This tour includes approximately 2-hours of moderate walking, at times over uneven surfaces and there are some inclines to negotiate in Taganana. The tour is not available to wheelchair guests and may not be suitable for those with mobility concerns. A jacket and flat, comfortable walking shoes are suggested.
