Float above the clouds with incredible views of Puerto de la Cruz and Mount Teide
Teide from the east side is incredible! Whether you start from the village of Arafo, the top of the climb, or the start point in between, you will be challenged and rewarded with some of the best scenery our island has to offer. You will be afforded views of the capital, Santa Cruz, Tenerife´s first tourist resort of Puerto de la Cruz as well as northern and eastern coastlines.
The stunning Mount Teide will suddenly appear through the clouds and then disappear for another few kilometres. Climb along the ridge, past the observatory, and then the mountain appears again-it is simply magical. At El Portillo we turn left towards the mountain passing the unique Ucanca desert and ´La Tarta´(the cake) with its coloured layers of volcanic ash.
We´ll continue around the crater before climbing up and then back to our café through Vilaflor. We reserve this tour for groups and one-off specials as the weather is often unpredictable in this region. Nevertheless Teide East is an incredible day out on the bike!
