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.

The Guggenheim Museum is a modern and contemporary museum in Bilbao which was inaugurated in 1997. It is part of the 5 museums of the Solomon R. Guggenheim Foundation. Its innovative structure was designed by the architect Frank Gehry in a spectacular “Deconstructivism” style that made the building famous in the entire world and built the reputation of the city of Bilbao.

Among the greatest artworks of the museum, we can quote the gigantic sculptures of Richard Serra, the installations of Jenny Holzer, the spider “Maman” of Louise Bourgeois or the giant flower dog of Jeff Koons, “Puppy”. The temporary expositions of the museum often change and are very eclectic going from the Chinese or Russian art history to the modern art of the 20th an 21st centuries.

With over 3000 years of history, Alicante is a multi-influenced city hiding a lot of historical places to visit and treasures to discover. The Santa Barbara Castle, at a height of 116 meters is one of Spain’s largest mediaeval fortresses which offer a perfect point of view on Alicante’s bay. Dating back to the 14th century, the Santa Maria Basilica and its two asymmetrical towers, is the oldest church in the city and another important monument of Alicante.

Finally you can not miss to plan an excursion to the small island of Tabarca at about 11 nautical miles offshore from Alicante. You will enjoy its crystal clear water, its picturesque fishing village and its few restaurants of traditional local cuisine.
