  • Marvel at eucalyptus trees and see pine trees up to 40 meters tall in the island's largest forest
  • Experience a diverse landscape of mountains, forests and more

Disembark your cruise ship at Santa Cruz de Tenerife, and then journey by air-conditioned minivan on a private 6-hour shore excursion. Admire the city of Santa Cruz, the current capital of Tenerife, before heading to the original capital of La Laguna. Marvel at some of the oldest architecture on the island. Purchase some of the traditional Canarian Barriquito coffee to set you up for the morning. Then, sit back and enjoy the commentary of your local guide who will provide lots of interesting stories as you head through the breathtaking forest of La Esperanza. Explore the largest forest on Tenerife and marvel at how high the pine trees grow. They can be as tall as 40 meters! Capture some amazing pictures of the rock formations, such as the 'tarta' and 'daisy.' Continue to the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Teide National Park. Centered around the volcanic Mt. Teide, it's an area of staggering beauty. Get views of the volcano as it soars to a height of 3,718 meters above sea level. You can take the cable car to the summit (not included) to get a fantastic view of the whole of Tenerife and, on a clear day, the 7 islands of the Canaries. Alternatively, rest at the visitor's center and wander among the flora, and even enjoy a short presentation about the life of Tenerife and Teide. Journey back down through the fertile lands of La Orotava and look at the rich vegetation famous for producing the local Vino tinto de Valle de La Orotava. See the historic house and museum of the Casa de los Balcones, built in 1632 and home to a great variety of Canarian products. Sit and relax on the patio, before heading back to Santa Cruz de Tenerife and a drop off at your cruise ship.
