Las Casas De La Cumbre, Canary Islands, Spain
Duration:
5 H
Discover the extraordinary nature of Anaga on this guided group tour. Step in our comfortable van for a journey towards Anaga Rural Park, a UNESCO Biosphere Reserve on the northeastern ... morecorner of Tenerife, home to some of the most beautiful hiking trails on the island. Along the way you will pass by the historic town of La Laguna, the oldest city on the island and a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Admire the views along the twisting mountain roads as you ride towards the ancient rainforest.

Arrive at the starting point and head straight into the dense woodland. Formed more than 7 million years ago, the forest hosts a wide variety of flora and fauna – including almost 2000 species of reptiles, insects, birds and fish. Walking amongst the twisting ancient trees while breathing the cool and misty air almost gives you a sensation of having gone back millions of years in time, to a kind of enchanted forest that you thought only existed in fairy tales or movies.

Emerging from the forest, continue across green fields and winding mountain paths in the unspoiled countryside. The panoramic views of the mountains in the distance and the green valleys below are nothing short of spectacular. After about 2 hours you will arrive at the village of Chinamada, where the inhabitants still live in cave houses carved into the mountains.

Head to the charming family-run restaurant Guachinche La Cueva, which is set inside a mountain cave. The delicious menu consists of shared plates of typical Canarian dishes, such as “ropa vieja”, “papas arrugadas con mojo”, bread, goat cheese with fig marmalade and goat meat. Vegetarian options include traditional vegetable soup and salads. Soft drinks, beer and wine are also available and included in the price.

After your time in Chinamada, step back into our van for a scenic ride back to your hotel.

Visit La Orotava Valley and Tacoronte, taste the famous red wines of the largest wine-growing area. Today the Canary Islands, and especially Tenerife, are producing excellent wines. ... moreThe non-grafted plants, volcanic soil and microclimates help to create these exclusive wines, from fresh fruity whites to full spicy reds. Hand laboured vineyards and artisan wineries are scattered all over the rugged geography of Tenerife, from the coast to the mountain slopes where the highest vineyards of Europe can be found.

Visit the Orotava Valley region to admire the unique “plaited” planting method and try their spectacular white wines. Then you will taste the red wines of the Tacoronte wine region, the largest wine-growing area with almost 2,500 hectares of vineyards, scattered with small artisan wineries and the famous “Guachinches” (the wine-makers’ patio or garage, where you can drink their wine accompanied by traditional homemade Canary dishes).
