Private excursion to Spain's highest peak, and visit to the world's largest solar-powered observatory on Tenerife
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. It’s just some of the unbelievable attractions of the Teide National Park, an area now listed as UNESCO World Heritage. And you can see it all for yourself.
Lace up your hiking boots and let the expert guide show you the way. 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. Now you take an aerial tramway up to 9800 ft., which is only a short walk from the highest mountain peak in Spanish territory.
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.
Your expert guide will then take you to the world’s largest solar-powered observatory, where you will be able to see the sun like never before.
Get your camera ready and enjoy.
