Tenerife is laden with hidden treasures. From quaint hamlets hardly touched by time to epic natural wonders. This full day excursion takes in top scenic and cultural sites such as the dragon tree of Icod de los Vinos, the cliffs of Los Gigantes, the pilgrimage centre of Candelaria and Puerto de la Cruz.
The first among the many marvels to discover is the legendary dragon tree at Icod de los Vinos – said by locals to be 1,000 years old. Next, the famous cliffs of Los Gigantes. These sheer rock walls of up to 500 metres plunge dramatically into the Atlantic and make an epic sight.
You'll then pay a visit to beautiful Candelaria, the island's religious centre. Here an imposing seafront basilica serves as a mecca for pilgrims. Facing it are the statues of Guanche kings – the aborigines who lived here centuries ago. There'll also be time to explore the lovely resort of Puerto de la Cruz and savour some traditional Canarian delicacies.
