    Cueva del Viento

    vien

    Cueva del Viento is a volcanic cavity located in the district of Icod de los Vinos which bears the same name. It was formed 27,000 years ago in basaltic lavas from the first eruptive phase of the Pico Viejo volcano, next to Mount Teide (Tenerife, Canary Islands).

    This lava tube, the name of which (“Cave of the Wind”) comes from the powerful draughts that flow through it, is the fifth longest in the world (18 kilometres mapped to date), behind the four that are found on the largest island of the Hawaii archipelago (United States). It is a huge labyrinthine network of underground passages, with many unexplored branches that will undoubtedly add to its overall length in the future.

    Barranco del Infierno

    infi

    EThe tour on this trail begins 350 m above sea level, in Adeje, a natural balcony with magnificent views to the landscapes in the south of the island. This hiking trip will take approximately three and a half hours and the whole tour will be of approximately 6500 meters. Because of the low-medium difficulty tail, it is recommended that you bring appropriate shoes for slippery and stony grounds. 

    We will start from the higher part of Calle de los Molinos, following the old pastoral trail. We´ll pass a series of viewpoints, some hives and an old mill and as we move forward we´ll walk along the riverbed of the ravine which will narrow towards the inside until its vertical walls will seem to close above the walker. 

    HIn order to visit the park previous reservation is essential due to the fact that the access is limited to only 300 people a day. On bad weather conditions, such as rain and/or wind, the ravine is considered dangerous because of the landslides so if you find the ravine closed please consider the restriction for your own safety.

    Teide National Park

    teid

    This is, without doubt, the icon of Tenerife. Teide National Park was declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 2007 under the Natural Asset category. It also boasts a European Diploma awarded by the European Council, and it is part of the Natura 2000 Network Sites. The Park is well deserving of such acknowledgements. Firstly, it boasts the broadest sample of supra-Mediterranean vegetation on Earth. Secondly, it covers one of the world's most stunning volcanic landscapes – and certainly the most outstanding in the Canary Islands.

    Teide National Park lies right in the middle of the Island, at an altitude of 2,000 m (6,500 ft) above sea level, topped by Spain's highest peak at 3,718 m (12,198 ft). These record-breaking figures add to the fact that it is the most visited national park in Europe, welcoming some three million visitors a year.

    Jardín Botánico

    bot

    La Orotava Acclimatisation Gardens was created by Royal Order of Carlos III on the 17th of August, 1788, due to the need to cultivate species
    from the tropics somewhere in Spain with a suitable climate. The intervention of Alonso de Nava y Grimón, VI Marquis de Villanueva del Prado
    was essential both in the decision making and also to establish and develop the gardens in the early stages. In 1790, the plans and memo were
    drawn up and work starts on the plans drawn by Nicolás Eduardo, architect from La Laguna. In 1792, 35 new plantations are started.

    Santa Cruz de Tenerife

    sacru

    Santa Cruz de Tenerife has been the capital of the Island since 1833 and shares its function as the capital of the Autonomous Community of
    the Canary Islands with Las Palmas de Gran Canaria. It lies in the north-east of the Island and borders San Cristóbal de La Laguna and El Rosario,
    covering 150.56 km2 (58.13 sq miles). The highest point in the municipality is Cruz de Taborno, standing at an altitude of 1,020 m (3,346 ft).
    It has 58 km (36 miles) of coastline which is divided by the natural barrier of the Santos ravine. Santa Cruz and La Laguna together comprise
    the metropolitan area. The port is a key point in maritime communications between Europe, Africa and America, and is also well linked to the
    western part of the Canary Islands, welcoming trade ships and tourist boats.

    Puerto de La Cruz

    pucru

    Although this is the smallest municipality in Tenerife, covering just 8.7 km2 (3.36 sq miles), Puerto de la Cruz has plenty of appeal with its
    protected historic quarter and its seemingly endless coast, which is perfect for long, leisurely walks. Puerto de la Cruz spans the coastal part
    of the Valley of La Orotava in a stunning setting, with the mighty silhouette of Mount Teide rising 3,718 m (12,198 ft) high in the background.
    Its wonderful climate made this the first tourist destination in the Canary Islands, ever since the British Medical Society recommended it in
    the 19th century as an ideal retreat. The temperature here ranges from 15 to 22 ºC (59 to 72 ºF), meaning the sea, the fresh air and the relaxed
    atmosphere can be enjoyed all year round.

    Basílica Nuestra Señora de la Candelaria

    cand

    In the late 14th century, about 100 years before the conquest of Tenerife, a Gothic style sculpture of the Virgin of Candelaria was washed up on
    the shores of the Güímar valley, who the Guanche people worshipped under the name of Chaxiraxi. As from the year 1526, the figure was kept in the
    shrine that was built under the orders of the second governor Pedro Fernández de Lugo. This somewhat primitive figure disappeared as a result of
    the flood in 1826, so the current figure was made by Tenerife's Fernando Estévez in 1827.

    Garachico

    gar

    The Villa and Port was founded at the end of the 15th century, by the Genoese banker Cristóbal de Ponte. The centuries XVI and XVII constituted
    the golden age of the history of Garachico. The economic prosperity of the place was based on the consolidation of its roads, especially during
    the 16th century, as the main gateway to Tenerife, with commercial traffic to Europe, America and Africa . During the seventeenth century,
    despite the increasing rivalry of other island ports such as La Orotava or Santa Cruz de Tenerife , it continued as a port, especially in trade
    between the Canaries and the Americas.

    Icod de Los Vinos

    ico

    IThe municipality of Icod de los Vinos lies in north-western Tenerife on an expanse of approximately 90 km2 (35 sq miles). Here is where the
    Millenary Dragon Tree stands (Dracaena draco), which was declared a National Monument in 1917 and is believed to be 800 years old. On the coast
    you will find the beach of Playa de San Marcos and you mustn't leave without visiting the lava tunnels of Cueva del Viento. You will also see
    that Icod de los Vinos affords one of the loveliest views of Mount Teide, Spain's highest peak.
    The municipality's economy was traditionally based on vineyards and fishing, which has of course influenced the local gastronomy: Potatoes with
    mojo sauce, salted fish, grilled meat, fine wines and hand-made cheeses. The historic-artistic heritage of the old town is one of the most
    appealing attractions for visitors to this municipality.

    ana

    Playa de las Américas is a purpose-built holiday resort in the southern and southern-west part of the Municipality of Arona, close to the
    adjoining Municipality of Adeje in the west of Tenerife, one of the Canary Islands. It was built in the 1960s beside the town of Los Cristianos
    and stretching west to the Costa Adeje. The resort area features bars, nightclubs, restaurants, attractions, and beaches, most of which are
    man-made with imported sand from Africa due to the darkness of the native volcanic sand. Playa de las Americas is a centre of nightlife in
    Tenerife. Nightlife is spread around the resort and includes the Veronicas Strip, Starco Commercial Centre and the Patch.

    La Matanza de Acentejo

    The First Battle of Acentejo took place on the island of Tenerife between the Guanches and an alliance of Spaniards, other Europeans,
    and associated natives (mostly from other islands), on May 31, 1494, during the Spanish conquest of this island. It resulted in a victory for
    the Guanches of Tenerife.
