No visit to Tenerife is completely without a visit to Teide National Park, and this popular hiking tour ensures you get to experience all the best sights this UNESCO-listed attraction has to offer.
To start, we pick you up at your hotel and give you a ride to Teide National Park in our comfortable van. Admire the sights on the way, including the fantastic phenomenon known as the ‘sea of clouds’ that envelopes the landscape like cotton candy.
The circular Roque de Garcia trail is approximately 3.5 km long and offers a very pleasant hike of medium difficulty, rising to a maximum elevation of about 2,100m above sea level.
Begin your hike by walking past the remarkable Los Roques Chichado rock formation – layers of sedimentary rock formed over a hundred thousand years ago as result of volcanic erosion.
When you get up close you can see just how unique this formation is as it reaches up towards the sky, seemingly defying gravity.
Take in the unique splendour of the different coloured rock formations from different angles and admire the moonlike landscape. The National Park is also home to almost 200 species of plants – 32 of those completely unique to Tenerife – such as the spectacular Teide bugloss (Echium Wildpretii) and the Teide violet (Viola cheiranthifolia).
Continue your journey down to the valley of Llano de Ucanca where the scenery is so peculiar that it has been said to be the closest experience that you can have of being on Mars.
Other highlights of the tour include the waterfall-shaped lava formation La Cascada as well as the spectacular solidified lava ‘chimney’ known as The Cathedral.
This is a small group tour – Travel comfortably in our private van and enjoy the company of your friendly guides and fellow guests.
The tour is suitable for families with children. The minimum recommended age is 10 years.

I booked three different activities (Whale watching, kayaking, horseriding) for the last week of July, under a week before I emailed to enquire about how to pay by card, at... read more which point I was told the "company was going through changes" and the kayaking & horse riding were cancelled, but the whale watching "should still be going ahead".
Two days later I was emailed to say the whale watching was now cancelled as well.
They have since then cited staff sickness and the fact the last week of July is "low season" as the reason for this (not even lack of bookings which would be more understandable). The fact is they took no steps to notify me the activities were now cancelled (still available to book now on their website incidentally) isn't confidence building. I have a feeling I would've only found out about the cancellations at last minute if I'd not emailed them.
They did respond to me after I commented on facebook to get in touch and they could help put me in touch with other operators, but I have a feeling this is only because I left a public comment.
Very disappointed - their activities looked great with great selections, but that's no use if they don't actually happen. More

We had three tour guides and they were all very polite, knew a lot about Anaga Rural Park and the island of Tenerife. They gave us information about the different... read more kinds of plants we found on the way. You don't need to bring a camera if you don't want to, because they take pictures for you and of you. Also, they brought water bottles, raincoats, energy bars, and extra fleeces.
The pickup and drop off was included and we ended the hiking in a local restaurant where the food was delicious. We didn't have to worry about a thing during the whole tour. All the guides were well prepared.
One of the highlights of the tour, for me, was meeting a herd of sheep: they were sooo cute!!! But, of course, from every point of view, the landscapes were breathtaking.
Wear your most comfortable walking shoes and you're fine. It's a beginner's trail. More
