Jeep Safari in Tenerife - where to go?
One activity - plenty of places to do it, that's one way to describe a safari tour in Tenerife. This adventure trip in agile off-road vehicles takes you to several hot spots on the island in just one day: Viewpoints, mountain villages, gorges etc. A comfortable and exciting way to see more of Tenerife. And you don't have to worry about anything, not even how to set up the Satnav or study a map. You just jump in and enjoy the ride.
You are a co-driver on the guided jeep safaris. In-between you have the camera at the ready, because views will meet you from every angle on a jeep safari in Tenerife. When the imposing mountain walls of the Teide Nature Park build up in front of you or the view behind a bend suddenly becomes so wide that you can look across the beach and coast to one of the neighbouring islands.
Some of the jeep safaris even lead to the neighbouring island of La Gomera, so that you can also enjoy the sight of the impressive coasts on a ferry trip and then embark on an adventure on the idyllic island west of Tenerife.

3 - Tenerife Jeep Safari - Teide
You can't miss the Teide when you're on holiday in Tenerife. At 3718 metres, this impressive island volcano rises and towers above everything else. It is understandable that many holiday-makers are drawn to it and it makes sense to get closer to the top if you're okay with heights.
The volcano and the surrounding nature park are the main destination of the four and a half hour Tenerife Jeep Safari Teide Tour. Here you pass one of the landmarks of the island - the stone tower of the rock formation Roques de García which is shaped like God's finger.
The Pico Viejo is as impressive, it is a little smaller than the Teide, but much older. Vilaflor is impressive and will make you marvel. At 1400 metres above sea level, it is the highest village in Tenerife and is well-known for its clean and clear air. The view from up there is something very special and reaches as far as Gran Canaria on a cloud-free day.
This tour is doable all-year-round and runs on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Saturdays.
4 - Tenerife Jeep Safari - Teide + Masca
With the imposing Teide and the mountain village Masca, you combine two very special destinations on this Tenerife jeep safari. A day trip that takes you from Playa de las Américas through beautiful countryside to the northwest of the island and to some of the most spectacular viewpoints.
The Teide National Park is not only geographically the green heart of Tenerife and more than you could imagine under a breath-taking volcanic landscape. On the jeep safari you will drive through this natural wonder and stop off to get out in many places to take in the beauty even better.
The tour is available in every season and runs daily except for Sundays.
