Recommendation for Tenerife cruise excursions
On Tenerife you can experience a lot on foot. During a guided shore excursion you will be picked up directly at the ship and get a comprehensive insight into the island.
If you are on the island for the first time, the all-day excursion to Teide and La Orotava is ideal. You will experience the landmark of the island, El Teide and get a breathtaking view over the island. A visit to the village La Orotava and Puerto de la Cruz are also on the program.
You prefer to immerse yourself in the history of Tenerife? Then take a trip to Güímar with the nature museum “Pyramid Park”. Afterwards you will visit the pilgrimage place Candelaria and the Museum of Man and Nature.
Alternatively, you can explore the historic towns of La Laguna and La Orotava. La Laguna is a university town, founded in the 15th century and still almost completely preserved in its original form. In La Orotava you can admire the picturesque and inviting old town.
