Hernán, discovering Tenerife in TAXI (3)

Hernán, discovering Tenerife in TAXI (3 de 3)

3 Tourist Routes in Tenerife

In August 2019, Hernán arrived with his parents, Gloria and Juan, with the idea of ​​knowing the Island of Tenerife in TAXI. Hernán, an 8-year-old boy from Badajoz, very funny and intelligent, hence the amount of questions he asked us to know everything. I think that we, the taxi drivers, have enjoyed doing these excursions more than Hernán, Gloria and Juan.

Stayed at the Hotel Iberostar Heritage Grand Mencey in Santa Cruz de Tenerife, and from there every morning we started the Tourist Routes in TAXI through Tenerife.

You can also book your TAXI and enjoy one of the different Tourist Routes around Tenerife that we offer. Get to know the Route, Time and Price with our Online Booking System.

Three Tourist Routes were made:

Tourist Route

The Tourist Route that was enjoyed in this RESERVATION
TOUR 05.- TEIDE NATIONAL PERK – SAN CRISTÓBAL DE LA LAGUNA

We met at 10:00 in the morning, half an hour earlier since they had hired the guided tour of the Special Observatory families and at 11:30 we had to be there, so we had to modify the order of the different stops at the viewpoints and points of interest of the Tourist Route in TAXI:

  • Ortuño Lookout point
  • Chipeque Lookout point
  • Observatorio del Teide
  • El Portillo Visitors Centre
  • San José Mines
  • Parador de las Cañadas del Teide
  • Roques de García
  • Llano de Ucanca Lookout point
  • Zapato de la Reina
  • La Tarta del Teide

This excursion, which in Taxi Tour Tenerife we call Tour 05, customers adapted it by adding the visit to the Teide Observatory, suppressed the stop in San Cristóbal de la Laguna (which led to the first excursion), the order of the stops and how The number of hours is logical.

  • From Santa Cruz de Tenerife

Ortuño Lookout point

A must stop when we head to Teide on the Esperanza road. This is where we can see the first panoramic views of the Teide National Park, on the northwest coast of the island and, if the day is clear, the neighboring island of La Palma. We were lucky and we enjoyed the magical spectacle that makes up the sea of clouds.

Mirador de Ortuño - Parque Nacional del Teide
Mirador de Chipeque - Parque Nacional del Teide
Chipeque Lookout point

We arrive at the Chipeque Lookout point, which is about 1830 meters above sea level.

From this viewpoint we contemplate the entire northern part of the island, where you can get to see from Punta del Hidalgo to Buenavista. With a spectacular panoramic view of Teide in the background and the unmistakable silhouette of the island of La Palma. Surrounded by Canarian pine, it is located in the known as Protected Landscape of Las Lagunetas.

 

Observatorio del Teide

Its geographical location, between the solar observatories of the east and the west, together with the transparency and excellent astronomical quality of its sky, have contributed to the Teide Observatory being dedicated to the study of the Sun, concentrating on it the best European solar telescopes .

Brian May, known worldwide as a guitarist for the British band Queen, for his doctorate in astrophysics, studied the reflection of interplanetary dust light in the Solar System. His thesis, An Investigation of Motion of Zodiacal Dust Particles, is based on his observations at the Teide Observatory, during the years 1971 and 1972 and he returned more than thirty years to deliver it in 2007 because May stopped writing his thesis when Queen began to be a hit band.

Visitor Center of El Portillo

The Visitor Center of El Portillo has a museum to learn about the most relevant geological, botanical, zoological and archaeological aspects of the Park. Your visit is free, as is the entrance to the Botanical Garden attached to it.

In the museum there is a recreation of the interior of a volcanic tube, interactive elements, photographic and backlit panels, video library room, library and an auditorium with audiovisual projector (where a video is played to understand the formation of the boiler on the which rises the Teide – Pico Viejo complex).

 

Centro de Visitantes del Portillo - Parque Nacional del Teide
Las Minas de San José - Parque Nacional del Teide
San José Mines

In the San José Mines it is easy to think that you are on another planet instead of in the Teide National Park. The Mines are plains of golden gravel interspersed with blocks of ocher-colored rock and twisted shapes. In front of them lie very long volcanic castings, and in the distance, the enormous wall of Las Cañadas del Teide, dominated by the high of Guajara, a mountain of singular beauty.

This amalgam of colors, textures and unique elements makes Las Minas one of the favorite places in the park among photography enthusiasts and film directors. Numerous films have been shot here, some of them major international productions. Two notable examples are ‘Fury of the Titans’, 2012, directed by Jonathan Liebesman; and ‘A million years ago’, 1966, directed by Don Chaffey.

 

Parador de las Cañadas del Teide

Staying at the Parador de Las Cañadas del Teide is a real privilege that can be enjoyed from the first to the last ray of sunshine. This emblematic building is the only hotel in Teide National Park, in the center of the island of Tenerife. A front row seat to contemplate the natural landscape that surrounds the highest peak in Spain. Few times in winter is covered by snow, and in spring do broom and tajinastes, native plant species.

Los Roques de García

Los Roques de García are in an elevated position dominating the Llano de Ucanca next to the National Parador de Teide. They are huge rock formations composed of the accumulation of several layers of different materials, which before being eroded formed a wall that separated the two boilers of Las Cañadas. Effect of this prolonged erosion are the curious forms that are currently appreciated, the most spectacular being “Roque Cinchado”, “La Catedral” and “La Cascada”.

Precisely the Roque Cinchado is quite different from the rest of the Roques de García despite being part of them, which has made it considered a distinctive and unique natural monument since time immemorial.

 

Los Roques de Garcia - Parque Nacional del Teide
Zapato de la Reina - Parque Nacional del Teide
Zapato de la reina

In the Teide National Park, next to Los Roques de García and in front of the Mirador del Llano de Ucanca, we find the Zapato de la Reina. It is a rock formation reminiscent of a stiletto shoe.

La Tarta del Teide

La Tarta del Teide and its lookout point is one of the most famous formations of the Teide National Park. The formation is an ancient lava river, the result of a series of volcanic eruptions in which different types of materials of different characteristics and colors overlapped. Hence the denomination of the formation, which reminds of a cake.

It is estimated that centuries or millennia may have passed between each of the layers. The white layer is formed by fragments of pumice stone, very porous and light. The black layers are formed by basaltic picon, characteristic of eruptions with low gas emissions. Finally, the reddish layers are also basaltic picon, but their color is the result of having come into contact with groundwater that has oxidized the material before evaporating by heat.
