From the south of Tenerife, you can visit the Teide National Park and the town of Puerto de la Cruz in one excursion. This combination will make you enjoy two of the most attractive places in the island.

The Teide National Park occupies the highest part of the island of Tenerife. It is the largest and oldest national park in the Canary Islands, and the third oldest in Spain. In 2007, it was declared World Heritage Site by UNESCO and since then the park is considered one of the 12 Treasures of Spain. In this area is the volcano Teide which, at 3.718 meters, is the highest peak in the Canary Islands, Spain and any Atlantic Ocean landmass. It is also the third largest volcano in the world from its base on the ocean floor, only surpassed by the Mauna Kea and Mauna Loa in Hawaii.

From there, the tour will bring you through the spectacular Orotava Valley falls to the north coast, where is located the city of Puerto de la Cruz. In this city, you can visit the Loro Parque, the Botanical Garden, the Martiánez Lake pool complex, the Beach Garden or the Plaza del Charco, that are just some of the attractions of this locality.
