Las Lagunetas - La Esperanza

In the protected landscape of Las Lagunetas are some of the best examples of historic pine forest on the island.

Located in the town of La Esperanza, 900 meters high. On the way, several viewpoints offer panoramas of 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.

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.

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.

Izaña Observatory

The exceptional environmental and meteorological conditions of the Teide National Park have placed it as a privileged place to investigate the universe. At the Izaña Observatory, modern telescopes are placed
taking advantage of the cleanliness of this sky look at the stars every night. Researchers from all over the world work in this place, whose tradition as a point of observation of what went beyond the clouds began in the mid-nineteenth century.

The own circular facilities and finished in white domes give a futuristic nuance making it a very unique landscape.

The observatory is integrated into the natural park of the forest crown, is the most extensive of the Canary Islands, begins at 300 meters above sea level and reaches 2718 meters, encompassing the vast wooded area that surrounds the Teide National Park forming a green ring that runs the entire island.

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).

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.

Teleférico del Teide

Teide National Park

The Teleferico del Teide allows you to ascend to the summit of the volcano, saving a large gap that, if done on foot, would require a lot of time and effort.

It is composed of two stations: the base station of the Teleferico del Teide, which offers bar and restaurant-buffet service, and the upper station, in La Rambleta, at 3,555 meters, with sensational views of the island of Tenerife and the Canary archipelago.

The trails of the Mirador de La Fortaleza and the Mirador de Pico Viejo, both open access, offer magnificent views of the north and south sides of Tenerife respectively. From the Mirador de Pico Viejo it is possible to see the neighboring islands with the 800 meter diameter crater of Pico Viejo at the foot.

The Telesforo Bravo path to the crater is restricted access by means of a special free permit from the Teide National Park, to be processed well in advance due to the high demand.

The Teleferico del Teide operating hours are from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., with the last climb at 4:00 p.m. Tickets can be obtained, either at the ticket office directly, or conveniently by booking on the web.

Tickets

Go up to the cable car and you will be at 3,555 m high and you will have before you different options to enjoy the stunning landscape of the largest Canary National Park. Remember that you have to be 30 minutes early and that it lasts approximately 1 hour and 30 minutes, so the price of the route has to add two extra hours. Tickets can be booked here.

Llano de Ucanca

One of the most amazing places on the Teide National Park Tourist Route is the Llano de Ucanca, this giant expanse of volcanic soil of 300 hectares and with hardly any shapes and usual objects that serve as a reference is always dominated by silence.

The colors of the lava acquire all the imaginable tonalities.

The valley is located in the western part of the caldera of the Cañadas del Teide.

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.

La Zapatilla de la Reina

La Zapatilla de la Reina is a roque that resembles a heel shoe.

La Zapatilla de la Reina is a very hard structure volcanic dike that is very eroded and shaped like a shoe, this Queen would be more than 100 meters high. Like any rock that is in the open air, over time (thousands of years) will change the current form by the continuous action of erosive agents, until it disappears completely.

Sámara Viewpoint

The Samara viewpoint is at an altitude of approximately 1800 meters and from there you have a wonderful view of the small volcano called Sámara and also of the Teide and the Pico Viejo.

The Samara trail starts at the Samara Viewpoint, if you walk along the trail to the top of the peak you will get a 360 degree view over the Teide National Park. Ideal for sunrise or sunset. At the beginning of the trail, hikers have the option of climbing to the top of the Samara volcano, where there are stunning views of a series of volcanic cones, as well as the summits of El Teide and Pico Viejo.

Archipenque Viewpoint

The Archipenque viewpoint is at the entrance of Puerto de Santiago. The view from this viewpoint is an unforgettable experience, you can admire the breathtaking views of the Cliffs of Los Gigantes with its more than 500 meters high and the coastal town itself with its marina.

The island of La Gomera is another show that can be seen from this viewpoint.

At the end of the Cliffs you will see the lighthouse at the tip of Teno rise.

Playa de Las Américas

Playa de las Américas is a luxury tourist area located on the southwest coast of Tenerife, the largest of the Canary Islands

The area includes several beaches, mostly artificial, made with sand imported from Africa. It is also one of the places where the largest leisure offer in the south of Tenerife is brought together with bars, pubs, terraces, restaurants and numerous discos, etc.
