- OUR TOURS -
MONDAY TOUR - Teide West
This is one of our most popular tours, and it's no surprise. Approaching the volcano Mount Teide from the west offers spectacular views of the Teno mountain range and the nearby islands of La Gomera and La Palma. We start from the village Chio or Los Paleos and reach Boca Tauce, which gets us close to Mount Teide. Once we reach the crater, we're riding up to 2,000 m (6,562 ft) above sea level! We then regroup at Retamar and start our 25-km (15.5-mi) descent. After lunch, an optional downhill ride to Las Americas concludes our day.
Distance: 64 km (40 mi), Climb: 1,220 m (4,003 ft)
WEDNESDAY TOUR - Masca
Like a hidden treasure in the ancient Teno Massif, the village of Masca resembles a mini Machu Picchu. We start in the village of Chio or in Santiago del Teide, move down to Garachico and its natural rock pools, then head to Buenavista del Norte, a town rich in old traditions. That's where we begin riding towards Masca through the heart of the Teno mountain range, with deep ravines and amazing flora all around.
The climb out of Masca is challenging, so we have a bus ready if it's a bit too much for you. We finish with lunch and an optional 32-km ride back to Las Americas.
Distance: 51 km (32 mi), Climb: 1,250 m (4,101 ft)
THURSDAY TOUR - Teide South
We start our ride either from our café, or from the charming village of Vilaflor, located on the highest part of the island. We then bike on the winding TF21 road, which runs along beautiful eroded soil and various landscapes. After reaching the thick Coronal Forest, we head towards Mount Teide, steadily reaching a height of 2,000 m (6,561 ft) above sea level.
At Retamar, we enter the crater and tour the Garonjonay National Park. Then it's down to the famous Parador Hotel, the only building directly on Mount Teide. Our big descent is finished with lunch at our base camp, and we conclude the tour in Las Americas.
Distance: 65 km (40 mi), Climb: 1,580 m (5,184 ft)
FRIDAY TOUR - Teide East
Whether you choose to begin down in the village of Arafo, the top of our climb, or in-between, this is an incredibly rewarding challenge. We get the best views of Santa Cruz and the gorgeous northern and eastern coastlines. Mount Teide appears in various points during our ride, then disappears and shows itself again in a different, stunning light.
We pass the Ucanca desert of Teide's National Park and ride around the crater until we reach the top. This tour ends at our café, where we enjoy a well-deserved lunch.
Distance: 66 km (41 mi), Climb: 1,580 m (5,184 ft)
SUNDAY TOUR - East Coast
After a bus transfer to Guimar Valley, we head out on the TF28 road, Tenerife's "biking highway". This road can take you down the entire length of the island! Passing through historic towns and villages let's us explore Tenerife's genuine culture, while riding through multiple valleys offers scenic views of the island of Gran Canaria.
The climbing during this tour is not continuous, but don't expect it to be easy. Especially if you choose to ride the optional drop down - followed by a climb back up - from/to El Poris, a former fishing village. We grab lunch in San Miguel, and end with a return to Las Americas.
Distance: 55 km (34 mi), Climb: 1,200 m (3,937 ft)

This was a great trip. We are not expert cyclists but the ebikes made it pretty easy. Even so there was lots of support on hand if we needed it. This was a great family experience.
