Teide - Once-In-a-Life-Time Volcanic Experience
Teide, the spectacular volcano on the island, is at the top of my list and highly recommended to anyone visiting Tenerife! This natural monument is a symbol and pride of the Canary Islands, which makes it the most visited national park in Spain. The experience of climbing above the clouds is amazing. After leaving a magnificent pine forest endemic to Tenerife, we enter the huge crater of Cañadas del Teide where we enjoy the magnificent view of the fabulous seas and lava rivers petrified by time. A sight to behold!
Royal Dolphin - Let’s Sail Away
Who doesn’t love setting out to the big blue sea? Here on Tenerife, we take boat trips to the Atlantic Ocean with the three-level Royal Dolphin catamaran which is perfect for families with children. On board the Royal Dolphin, you will have the unique opportunity to soak up the beauty of the scenic west coast of the island and bathe in the beautiful sea of the Canary Islands.
