We are going to see the breathtaking views of the West Coast of the Island. The adventure through Vilaflor, one of our local villages, then through the magnificent pine forest. There also we will pass onto the plateau of the Volcano with its moon-like landscape. In that area classic films like Planet of the Apes and the newest Clash of the Titans have been filmed.
After, move on to Garachico, a local town destroyed in the volcanic eruption of 1706. The magical village of Masca with its amazing views of La Gomera is our next stop. With only around 120 inhabitants it was home to the Pirates who smuggled their contraband here. This is one of the best tours in the island Teide Icod Garachico Masca.
Masca is located at one of the oldest geological sites in Tenerife. The rich and endemic flora, astounding ravine and rock formations were the results of many volcanic emissions. In 2007, forest fires raged across Tenerife, burning homes and destroying vast areas of pine forests.
It is a village hidden in a valley in the mountains of Tenerife. The village Masca is situated at a high altitude of around 750 m in the Teno mountains. Nowadays, the village is part of the municipality of Buenavista del Norte and it’s home to around 90 people who still choose to live here.
