A short transfer from the ship will bring you to your jeeps, ready and waiting to take you on an island discovery.
Embark on your adventure towards the Cañadas del Teide, passing by the attractive Esperanza Forest for photograph stop. Further photography stops will be made before stopping for a snack to enjoy a coffee and pastry.
The National Park of Las Cañadas is an enormous crater covering an area of 13,571 hectares, from which emerges the majestic cone of Mount Teide. The mountain is Spain's highest and can be seen from almost everywhere on the island. The Park also extends as far as the Ucanca Valley, the largest plain in the Park, along with its lava fields. View the rock formation known as 'God's Finger' at the Mirador del Dedo de Dios, where a stop will be made for photographs, before your return drive to the ship.
