Tenerife Day Trip Itinerary
Pico del Teide Tour (advance booking)
Buzanada – Aloe Park
This Tenerife Tour will leave in the morning from your hotel in Tenerife South. We will head to Buzanada to visit Aloe Park (formerly known as Jardines de Atlantico). The park has 40,000 meters of aloe.
Here we can also admire its “finca”, a farm surrounded by beautiful plantations of bananas and aloe vera. Infact you can find many varieties of fruit trees (oranges, papaya, avocado etc.). Moreover, you can also admire the traditional animals of the “finca” like camels, donkeys, goats and ducks.
Finally, we will conclude the visit with a tasting at the park bazaar.

Here the Tenerife Excursions will make a brief stop to see the Gordo Pine. This is the largest specimen of the Canary Islands, with a height of 45 meters.
Teide National Park – Mount Teide
Finally the Teide Tour arriva at Teide National Park, UNESCO World Heritage Site. Mount Teide is a dormant volcano. It’s the highest point in Spain and the third largest volcano in the world. The Teide National Park has been a protected zone since 1954.
The drive up to the Teide National Park is an experience in itself. Indeed, along the way you can admire Alpine scenery and tons of wildlife. About half way up the terrain abruptly transforms into a surreal, lunar-like landscape.
The weather here can be dramatically different from the rest of the island too. Infact in the winter you can encounter freezing temperatures and snowfall. While in the summer however, temperatures are more consistent with the rest of the island, at around 30-40 °C.
