Stop pinching yourself. It's not a dream – all those landscapes from another planet, the exotic vegetation, the volcanic lava and many other marvels. No, it's not a dream.

You'll traverse a maze of exotic vegetation, along fascinating trails, breathing in the pure air of Spain's highest mountain, walking through the lava fields, and feeling maybe a little small in the immensity of these incredible mountain slopes. Once you are up to 6000 ft, you start enjoying the impressive vistas of the neighboring islands of La Palma, La Gomera and El Hierro. But the dream-scape doesn't end there.

Accompanied by your private guide, who will tell you all about this active volcano, you will marvel at the panoramic views under your feet, with rivers of petrified lava, eroded rock formations, colorful wild flowers, and more, as you walk to the Teide crater and see some incredible views of the island of Tenerife, and the surrounding sea and islands.

Lanzarote is a marvel, where the Portuguese writer and recipient of the 1998 Nobel Prize in Literature spent the last years of his life. This tour is full of contrasting elements, such as terrain that is apparently wasteland, but produces unusual fruits; the private life of a universal writer like Saramago, as seen in his home-museum where he spent his last 18 years. This home-museum opens its doors to you. Here, you discover the writer's passion for art, life and literature. A home that he described as being "a house made of books." Then you head towards the Timanfaya Nature Park, where you can marvel at the scenery, which includes the wine-growing district of La Geria, on terrain which is incredibly beautiful. Here, the farmers have created something quite unusual. They have managed to coax the seemingly dead black lava soil into producing exotic grapes. At the wine-cellar Bodega El Grifo you can see how they make their excellent wines, in the company of your expert guides who show you all the secrets of this land. And then you get to taste the wines and commune with the flavors of this extraordinary island paradise. A total of 20 fascinating volcanoes surround you here. You can find out about the geothermal experiments being performed here, deep underground. You will also have time to visit a natural "oven", where you can see how typical Canary Island recipes are cooked in what is known as the “Mountain of Fire”. Then you ascend to a crater to get some impressive views of the islands, heading towards the lava fields of the Bay of El Golfo. And before you return to your hotel, you'll visit the Salt Flats of Janubio – in a fascinating tour of the coastal lava cliffs along Los Hervideros. Are you ready for some real fascination?
