Tenerife: Anaga Rural Park Full-Day Guided Tour

1. Tenerife: Anaga Rural Park Full-Day Guided Tour

Discover one of the last laurel forests in the world on a full-day tour of Anaga Rural Park, where time appears to have stood still for centuries. Start in the typical fishing village of San Andres, just outside Santa Cruz de Tenerife, near Teseritas Beach. You will be immersed into the natural world almost immediately. Your guide will provide information on the history of one of the oldest sides of Tenerife, sculpted by millions of years of volcanic erosion. Cross the Fayal-Brezal to discover places full of rural traditions, and friendly locals who are always waiting for visitors. Learn the legends and stories of the aboriginals, and the 1st governors who conquered the island. At the summit of Anaga, you will experience one of the best secrets of the Alisio wind; revel in the magic of the humid Laurisilva forest. Then, visit isolated villages that are still lived in by locals to see traditional rural architecture. Enjoy a unique view from a privileged vantage point, directly over a cliff that towers 550 meters above sea level. End with a walk in the UNESCO World Heritage city of San Cristóbal de La Laguna, and discover why it is sometimes referred to as the “Florence of the Canary Islands.”

What people are saying about San Cristóbal de La Laguna

On this trip we stopped at a number of interesting places, we walked, had lunch at a local restaurant and swam on the beach with big waves. Our guide Jaime was very nice and we really enjoyed his company. He was approachable, talkative and very well prepared. He taught us a lot of interesting things about Tenerife. My husband and I travelled with 4 children aged 8, 10, 11 and 13 years. Jaime knows how to communicate well with children and they also found this trip very interesting. Although we spent the entire day with him, no one complained that they were bored. Everything can be arranged through Jaime; he is adaptable, practical and very organized. We recommend this trip to everyone as you will see many interesting things and you will learn a lot about the history of the island, culture, climate, plants and more. It was a great pleasure to learn so much about the Canary Islands. We enjoyed it so much that we arranged two more trips with Jaime. When it was time to leave, the children

It was an exceptional experience from the beggining till the end. Our guide Jaime was very well prepared - he knows about Tenerife culture, history, flora and fauna a lot and is excited to share! We hiked in amazing Laurel leaves forest, also went to see another panoramic views, shared local food together (goat meat,etc.). We had a feeling as we have spent our day with a friend, who wants to show the best what Tenerife has!

Excellent guide Marco, Italian, local partner of Tamaran agency, geep with 5-6 people, and no bus full of people, all excellent, in this excursion see the 4 seasons in 1 day, the north with fog and clouds, the ancient capital always fresh and with its streets full of clubs and people, the ocean in the north with its cool breeze, and the sun in the south, Candelaria with its cathedral etc. Excursion does!

Jaime is the best guide we've ever had. He loves his homeland Tennerifa and his job, has really studied tourism and for this reason is simply crazy. He speaks great German and exudes such enthusiasm for Tennerifa that we will definitely not forget this excursion. I was traveling with my 12 year old son, to whom Jaime also responded very well. Thank you Jaime for this wonderful day. Lorenz & Julia

Everything is wonderfully told and shown - we would not find so many interesting places ourselves. I recommend highly.
