Loro Parque

Loro Parque

The No 1 Zoo In The World

Loro Parque is the world-famous animal adventure park located on the outskirts of Puerto de la Cruz. The Park is known as a Paradise of Parrots which you can view and enjoy as you walk around. But Loro Parque is also famous for a wide selection of endangered species from around the world. Sea Lion shows, Dolphinarium and Penguin Planet are only some of the attractions that you can admire at the colorful garden.

You also shouldn’t miss the Katandra Treetops, which is an experience bringing you to a world with the most amazing species of birds. You will be shocked by loris, cockatoos, kookaburras and emus in their wonderful jungle setting. Paired with the Siam Park adventure, the prices are even lower.

Siam Park

The Water Kingdom of Europe

Siam Park beats many records! Not only is it the most spectacular water attraction in Europe, but its 25 buildings are the largest collection of Thai-themed buildings outside of Asia. Not to mention, they have the biggest artificial waves in the world! There is something for everyone at Siam Park, with a diverse selection of waterslides and thematic lands to keep you busy all day long. If you get exhausted by the challenging rides and water attractions, you can take a break by visiting the Floating Market, experiencing Thai cuisine or relaxing at a Siam Beach.

Teide National Park

Teide National Park

UNESCO World Heritage Centre

The excursion begins with a visit to the historic town of La Orotava to see fine examples of typical Canarian architecture: the Plaza del Ayuntamiento (Town Hall Square), the church, La Concepción, and the 17th century Casa de los Balcones. From there, we climb up the picturesque tree-lined Aguamansa road to the Teide, passing the Margarita de Piedra, a volcanic stone formation which looks like a flower.

Once in the Teide National Park, we visit the Portillo de la Villa and Montaña Blanca, which is situated at 2,373 meters high. There are some fascinating rock formations here: La Piedra Pómez, La Ruleta and the Roques de García, with a beautiful view across the Llano Ucanca. For lunch, we will either stop at a restaurant or have a picnic (optional). The return trip takes a different route via Izaña, passing the view of the Diablillo, La Tarta, Fuentes del Joco, and Ortuño down to the village of La Esperanza. From there, we join the motorway at La Laguna returning to Puerto de La Cruz at around 5.00 p.m. (The route may vary depending on the weather).

La Gomera

La Gomera

The Island Where the Time Has Stopped

From the port of Los Cristianos, it is just a one-hour ferry ride to San Sebastián, the capital of La Gomera. Once we arrive, we will travel by car and climb up to the Garajonay National Park (the laurisilva wood), going vía La Degollada Peraza, a lookout point with a fantastic panoramic view. From the small village of La Palmita we’ll go through the national park to the towns of Las Rosas and Agulo. There we will have lunch and hear a demonstration of the typical Silbo Gomero, the whistling language of the Guanches, the natives of the Canaries. If there is time, we will visit the tourist center Juego de Bolas. On our way back, we will cross the Hermigua Valley and San Sebastián, where there will be some free time to visit the Torre del Conde and the Casa de Colón (Christopher Columbus’ house).
