West Tenerife. Masca village, Teno lighthouse and Garachico

Buenavista del Norte, Spain

Experience hosted by Evgenii

  1. 7 hours
  2. Hosted in Russian and English

What you'll do

An unforgettable journey through the western part of Tenerife. A lot of viewpoints on the way and unexpectable beautiful panoramas. This trip will be an amazing mix of nature and history of Tenerife.

Masca. In the morning we start from your hotel and drive to Teno Rural Park by winding mountain roads. The first stop will be in Masca village - the most popular place in this area. We can see how beautiful it is at any time of the year. The views from here are worthy of your camera shots. Also you can try how tasty cactus can be.

Teno lighthouse.Unfortunately, at the beginning of 2022, the road to the Teno lighthouse was again closed for restoration. Any movement on this road is strictly prohibited. But we can use the secret road that leads to the mountain plateau. There we will take a short walk of 20 minutes and find ourselves at the westernmost point of Tenerife from where Cape Teno is perfectly visible. Cool photo session guaranteed! Next, we will visit a real lunar landscape!

Garachico. Its cobbled streets invite visitors to explore the heart of the town, its churches and its historic buildings. Garachico is a living legend: who said it's impossible to be reborn from the ashes? When the Trevejo volcano erupted in 1706 it destroyed almost the entire town, but what that meant was an opportunity to rebuild it even more beautiful and charming than before. And natural swimming pools here are a great spot to see or to swim.

And the way back to your hotel by other roads (possibly through the clouds) after the adventure and with amazing experiences and memories.

My wife and I enjoyed our day with the organiser Alex and his Toyta. Alex is a wonderful, friendly, open person. We learned a lot about the island and its people. You can't read that in a guidebook! I can recommend this trip to everybody! You can hardly get to Teno lighthouse on your own and visit so many interesting, viewpoints in a day that few people know about. As we are travellers without a car, Alex picked us up during our stay in Adeje directly from the hotel. We drove through the Masca Valley with spectacular views of Los Gigantes, stopping at the best viewpoints. Then we drove to the lighthouse of Teno, it had a beautiful view of Los Gigantes from the sea, it was cloudy and windy and because of this very beautiful. Our last stop was the town of Garachico, famous for its natural pools where we bathed. My wife wanted to linger there and shoot content for instagram and Alex very kindly waited for us and didn't rush us, which was very nice. We had so many stops to get out of the car, look around, walk around a bit and take some amazing photos. It's the best way to see the best parts of the island if you don't have your own car! Thank you so much Alex for pushing back on our wishes and willingly being able to change the original trip plan if we wanted him to. The trip was an individual one, so there were no strangers to wait on. Would recommend to all!

Татьяна провела индивидуальную экскурсию для моих родителей и они остались в восторге! Она очень приятный человек и внимательный гид, рассказала много интересного об острове, его поселениях, природе, о жизни на Тенерифе, поделилась личным опытом. Экскурсия хорошо сбалансирована, есть и горы, и море, и вулкан, и деревушки, вино и ресторан (родители остались в восторге от простой но необычайно вкусной местной кухни!!). Они могли и погулять, и поплавать с масками, при этом маршрут был физически не слишком тяжелым. К тому-же, я получила кучу фотографий родителей вместе на фоне прекрасных пейзажей! Предварительный контакт с Евгением тоже был очень приятным и не оставил у меня открытых вопросов или сомнений. Мы без ограничений рекомендуем экскурсии с Татьяной и Евгением. Большое Вам спасибо!

У Евгения потрясающе интересная программа! Мы остались в полном восторге, а если учесть, что мы путешественники со стажем, видавшие, бывавшие на всех континентах, видели много всего, но здесь ... Трепетный подход к каждому клиенту, плюс ну очень интересная программа, кстати, на Тенерифе мы не впервые, но сейчас мы обновили и добавили ярких, новых впечатлений и потрясающих мест, очень красивых, даже не смотря, что программа очень активная, но усталость проходит от увиденного! Евгений, благодарим Вас за новые впечатления! Вы молодец!
