Disembark your cruise ship and leave Tenerife’s pretty port by air-conditioned minivan. Admire the dramatic volcanic landscapes as you travel to the heart of Teide National Park, a UNESCO World Heritage site that surrounds the colossal rise of Mt Teide. Gaze at the staggering 12,198-foot (3,718-meter) summit as you approach the park and listen to your private guide’s compelling commentary as you pass by the lava-sculpted rock formation of La Esperanza.

Ascend to a height of 7,776 feet (2,370 meters) and capture photos of the breathtaking natural panoramas. Continue to the summit in a modern cable car (own expense) to experience vistas of the entire island.

Depart from the volcano and venture to a verdant area cradled by dense forests, known as Las Cañadas. Wander through fascinating nature trails with your private guide, scouring the greenery for fascinating flora and fauna. See petrified lava and eroded rock formations and hear of the TV commercials and blockbuster films that used the scenery as their setting.

Return to your minibus and relax during the journey back to Tenerife port. Bid your guide farewell and embark your cruise ship well in advance of its departure.

Itinerary
Stop At:  
Teide National Park
Leave the Tenerife port by private air-conditioned vehicle, and travel to Teide National Park, a UNESCO World Heritage site that surrounds Mt Teide, a volcano located at the heart of the island. One of Spain’s tallest volcanoes at 12,198 feet (3,718 meters), Mt Teide makes for an impressive visit, and its views over the island are incredible. Gaze out of the window as you listen to your guide's commentary during the drive through La Esperanza, an area made up of volcanic lava. After traveling to a height of around 7,776 feet (2,370 meters), stop for photos and soak up the views. If you want to continue to the summit, take a ride on the cable car (own expense) and ascend on your own to discover panoramas that stretch over the whole island. Leaving the volcano in the early afternoon, make the journey to an alpine-esque area of the park known as Las Cañadas. Walk around the trails with your private guide and marvel at the landscape, with its rivers of petrified lava and eroded rock formations, broken up by colorful wild flowers. Hear how the area is used as a filming set for TV commercials and movies such as the 2010 Clash of the Titans, and learn how the area has become one of Tenerife’s top visitor attractions. Later, return to your vehicle and travel back to the Tenerife port where your shore excursion finishes with drop-off by your guide.

Teide National Park Day

Tour involved the area around the volcanic area of the island. The guide made sure that we had access to English based presentations which explained the history and significance of the area. He offered additional comments on what we were seeing and how it related to the background information we had received at the park information center.

First of all, the tour operator that met us in the port was so in a hurry to accommodate an overbooked excursion. He did not explain why the Teide National Park trip was cancelled. We were passed on to a taxi driver that was nice and friendly but unable to speak English enough to explain why the trip was cancelled let alone give us a decent tour around town. Our co-cruise passengers said they were taken to the Teide National park by their guide by other operators, that means it was not closed. We were not given a choice not to take the alternative tour for a refund. This is not a shore excursion nor a guided trip, it’s purely a taxi ride around town. We paid more than $250 for 2 people which our co-cruiser paid $80 for 4 people for the same itinerary. We have used Viator for a long time and was Happy although this will leave a “bad taste” in the mouth.

Excellent experience! Our guide spoke very good English (originally from England). She listened to our desires of seeing local things. Stopped for a traditional coffee at a local petrol station, saw the volcano, and had a wonderful traditional Lunch.

Had a pleasant day touring on foot the city and then getting into a van and going up to the national Park. It is quite lovely and many different changes on the way up as far as the trees. We also had stopped before going up to the park to a lovely Village and got to walk around there as well and see some of the architecture. Would recommend this tour Highly.

Our driver, Angel, a Tenerife local, made our trip a memorable one, I am handicapped and wheelchair bound, and I was unable to access the first vehicle provided. The van would have been perfect for anyone able to step up a foot or so, but I cannot. Another vehicle was obtained, and our tour began. I had no idea of th size and beauty of this island prior to the arrival of our cruise ship. The city is large and modern, with very colorful buildings dotting a vast hillside. A short drive took us out of the city of Santa Cruz and immediately to higher elevations. We reached a forested highway with many viewpoints where we were able to view the city from above. Continuing on, we rose higher and the temperature dropped significantly-I would recommend a jacket. The trip continued through the National Park, where we stopped for many views of Tiedre, the towering volcano rising some 12000 feet above sea level, There is a cable car ride available that takes you near the top of Tiedre, but we did not do this. As it was we drove to over 7000 feet and viewed an extensive volcanic landscape. All the while, Angel provided interesting info on the cities, the forests, and the volcanoes of the Island. We took a different route back to the ship, and viewed more of the cities before ending our tour. Highly recommended and enjoyed by all of our party, this trip is well worth the time and money.

The Canary Islands are surprisingly different, and Tenerife has an astounding area of climatological zones - forests, deserts, volcanic landscapes, soaring evergreens, verdant coastline. It's an environmental treasure. Unfortunately, our guide, while friendly, had rudimentary English skills which deteriorated as the day progressed. We have a complaint into Viator and the tour operator about this, which has not been resolved at the time of this review.

The scenery was beautiful, but our guide was just OK. She did not pass on as much knowledge as other guides we've had. Still worth doing to see the scenery.
