The Basics

When it comes to Masca Valley, the journey is just as impressive as the destination; the dizzying drive climbs up steep mountain roads from Santiago del Teide, and features switchbacks and spectacular views over the valley. Most tours of western Tenerife and Teide National Park include a stop at Masca village and give you free time for a short walk into the valley. Alternatively, you can hike all the way through the valley to the coast.

Mt. Teide and Masca Valley Tour in Tenerife
Bus was on time 8.25 and when everyone was on board Fransisco start his information till 1700 so a big shoutout to u. So much information and speaking with a nice voice to listen. National Park Teide, lunchbreak, Garachico & Masca are awesome places. At are group differents couples come late every time we get some free time. So for Masca was only 30min left. But for Masca u need at leas 1 hour its so amazing. Great Excursion 👍

A Great tour with a great tour guide, if you like scenic views and like hiking then this trip is for you. Walk at your own pace as there are plenty of stops to allow slower people time to catch up and rest.

Tenerife Teide National Park Tour including Volcano Teide and Masca
I recommend this tour among beautiful landscapes and sights of the island. The price is right. The guide was prepared and delightful and the driver was very good especially in the breathtaking mountain road at La Masca. Also the person of the booking office was very kind on helping to organize my excursion.

Mt. Teide and Masca Valley Tour in Tenerife
Our pick up time was at 8 at our hotel. The tour guide Francesco was very nice, had great knowledge about the history, the climate zones, the native plants and the various places we went. Especially the tide and los gigantos were magical places to explore.

Mt. Teide and Masca Valley Tour in Tenerife
Very nice experience! Even though we were not staying at a hotel we were picked up very close to our Airbnb Isabel was an amazing host. I could tell that she was doing her best to keep the information as similar as possible in the two languages (English/Spanish) The places were super nice and considering all that we knew I think it was a fair amount of time to get some cool pictures and explore. Totally recommended to those who want to explore a lot of Tenerife in one day.

Things to Know Before You Go

  • If you plan to hike through the Masca Valley, wear solid hiking shoes and be prepared for the occasional scramble. Bring your swimsuit too, as the trail finishes on the beach.

  • The trail takes around three hours to hike and is suitable for travelers of a moderate fitness level.

  • It’s a steep drive through the mountains to Masca village, so less confident drivers or those who suffer from vertigo might be better to take a tour.

  • There are a number restaurants and accommodation options in Masca Village.

How to Get There

Masca Valley is located on the northwest coast of Tenerife and is reachable via the TF-436 mountain road. Most visitors arrive from Santiago del Teide, a winding 3-mile (5-kilometer) drive which takes around 20 minutes. Public buses run twice daily from Santiago del Teide on weekdays only; alternatively, hire a taxi from town. Hikers tackling the Masca gorge trail can also take a water taxi from Masca Beach at the end of the trail to Los Gigantes.

When to Get There

The small village can get crowded in the peak months of July and August, when traffic can be heavy along the mountain roads and parking is limited in the village. If you’re visiting independently, it’s best to make an early start.

Exploring West Tenerife

After exploring the park’s volcanic landscapes and taking in the views from Mt. Teide, Spain’s highest mountain, continue along the west coast, where you can stop to admire the towering sea cliffs of Los Gigantes, visit the resort town of Costa Adeje, and hit the beaches at Los Cristianos and Playa de las Americas.
