Tenerife Canadas del Teide Excursion Reviews

A guided tour of Mt. Teide makes for a great and active excursion on Tenerife, but don't forget to bring a jacket! The Cañadas del Teide includes an enormous volcanic crater 30 miles in circumference with a staggering height of 12,200 feet, the highest in all of Spain. This is not a site to miss out on.
Really enjoyed the trip up the mountain and looking down on the clouds was amazing.

A great day out. The bus climbs through the forests up to where you get wonderful vistas of Mt Teide rising up 3718m. Photo stops are made. The drive continues through the NP where you can see craters, lavas flows, interesting rock formations and so on. We get up to over 2000m or thereabouts I think and the guide tells going down we'll probably fall asleep. Once we get back through the forests he says did you have a sleep. I was sitting at the front and jokingly said no "you talk to much". He said "I talk to make sure the river stays awake". Interesting. Of course he spoke in Spanish. There was a free port shuttle bus to the port gates (about 1.5km) but walked into town and wandered around Plaza de Candelaria area where there was a nice park, shops etc. Read Less

An over-hyped bus ride up the mountain to the cable car and if Mother Nature cooperates, you will be able to ride it all the way to the summit. Otherwise, it feels like driving through AZ or UT

There were just four of us on this minivan tour of the northeast coast and the Mount Teide National Park booked with Feel Tenerife. The early part comprised an interesting tour of the small, family owned Monje winery at which we enjoyed a superb and authentic three course meal, with samples of the wine to accompany it. We then drove on up to the Mount Teide Park where we spent most of the day enjoying the spectacular landscape and views. Our guide Jaime was a delight - knowledgeable, engaging and passionate about the island. He gave us a wealth of information and adapted the route to reflect our interests. Overall a great day out Read Less

This tour was another casualty of the seasons - or our choice to book this late in the year. It was a fairly long coach trip up into the Las Canadas National Park and we did see some spectacular views from our side of the coach when we ascended, but all was lost in mist on the return journey. There was a photostop on the way up and a brief comfort stop / chance for a beverage even higher. At the highest point we reached the views were stunning - and would have been more so if it wasn't for the hill fog and rain which had set in! On fascinating aspect was the huge numbers of pickup trucks parked on the side of the roads, which I guide pointed out were for the men and their dogs hunting rabbits in the very short season! Even they were giving the day up as a bad job and heading home when the weather turned. The actual trip was well organised and reasonably good value. Once back on the ship we warmed up and relaxed rather than venturing out into Santa Cruz de Tenerife again. Read Less

A.) Tenerife, Canary Islands I chose going up the mountain side of Mt. Teide, on this dormant volcanic island, Canadas del Teide. The island drive wasn't as pretty as Ponta Delgada, Azores, in my opinion. The scenes near the end by the rock formation were more reminiscent of many scenes I've seen in Arizona in the canyon-like caldera. We did get a goodly number of pictures here. A few stops were made for photos and coffee, and some time to pick-up a souvenir. We sampled some local fare near the port after coming back from our tour at the Port of Tenerife. Unemployment on this island is 30%. Read Less

Tenerife We opted for the Mount Teide National Park trip and were surprised just how far it was from the port. We certainly wouldn't have wanted to do the trip independently and were pleased that we had a proper guided tour organised via P&O. The weather was cloudy in Tenerife but we went above the cloud on Mount Teide and had fantastic weather. The temperature is definitely cooler on the mountain so you need to remember to wear layers.
