Discover the north of Tenerife, a magical place with Mount Teide to one side and the Atlantic Ocean to the other, where the most authentic nooks and crannies blend with an impressive landscape that will astound you.
One of the best excursions around northern Tenerife to discover the island’s most historic villages: During this 5-hour tour, you will visit Garachico, a charming stately coastal town, and Icod de Los Vinos, whose streets and squares will steal your heart, and where you will see the famous Drago Milenario, a Thousand-Year-Old Dragon Tree.
On our trip around the northern part of Tenerife, we will make a well-deserved stop in Puerto de la Cruz to behold the valley of La Orotava from this beautiful place.
Garachico, a town that has resurfaced from the ashes
Stroll through the cobbled streets of the historic centre of Garachico, one of the must-visit municipalities in the north of the island, which was declared a Site of Cultural Interest in 1994 for its rich architectural heritage dating from the 16th and 17th centuries. It is worth noting that this beautiful town was almost completely devastated by the volcanic eruption of Trevejo in 1706. The positive aspect of its reconstruction is that this beautiful place which you can visit in northern Tenerife is now even more beautiful and charming than before.
Icod de los Vinos offers so much more than the opportunity visit to the Thousand-Year-Old Dragon Tree Drago Milenario
Northern Tenerife tours wouldn’t be complete without a visit to Icod de los Vinos, a town famous for its Drago Milenario, a Thousand-Year-Old Dragon Tree declared a National Monument in 1917. But this beautiful place with cobblestone streets, fountains and small squares is one of the must-visit sites in the north of Tenerife because it also boasts other attractions.
This place offers one of the best views of Mount Teide, which is why it is a traditional en-route stop for tours around northern Tenerife.
Interestingly, one of the largest volcanic tubes in the world known as the Wind Cave (Cueva del Viento), is located right at the top of this beautiful tourist spot.
