What to expect

Nestled in the lush slopes in northwestern Tenerife, the mountain hamlet of Masca could have dropped straight from a fairytale. You'll explore this remote community as well as Icod de lo Vinos and Garachico on this full day excursion.

Your excursion starts at Icod de los Vinos to see its famous – and huge – one-thousand-year old dragon tree. Stopping at the Garachico lookout point will afford amazing views of this celebrated coastal town, devastated by a 1706 eruption and rebuilt on its lava. After climbing the slopes of Erjos towards Santiago del Teide, it's downhill to the Masca with its quaint cottages perched precariously on a rocky ridge. Wander around at your own pace and savour the beauty of this Machu Picchu-like location.

Then, it's on to Garachico, once a hub of medieval trade and overflowing with old-world houses, sunny plazas and cobbled streets. There'll be free time for lunch here before returning to Puerto de la Cruz.
