Top Day Trips from Tenerife

By Viator, January 2018

4.5 113 Reviews | Add your review

While many visitors to Tenerife stick to the coastal resorts and beaches, the island’s pretty colonial towns, hillside vineyards and looming volcanoes are all good reasons to head inland. One of the most popular tours in Tenerife is to the central Teide National Park, with a day trip to Mt Teide and the Masca Valley to show off the island’s dramatic topography. This also includes a cable car ride to the island’s highest point and a scenic tour of the UNESCO-listed park. 

Of course, you don’t have to stay on Tenerife—regular ferries and jetfoils also run to the neighboring islands, the closest of which is La Gomera, less than an hour by boat from southern Tenerife. Take a day trip to La Gomera and soak up the ocean views on a scenic cruise before docking in the capital of San Sebastian, where Columbus is thought to have overnighted—at a spot marked by the aptly named Columbus House. As the second-smallest of the Canary Islands, you’ll have plenty of time to explore the island’s top attractions, even on a day tour, with highlights including the Mirador de Las Carboneras viewpoint, the Garajonay National Park, the village of Las Rosas, known for its peculiar Gomeran whistling language, and El Cedro, where you can tuck into some local cuisine.
