When you first see the Orotava Valley you can't help but be impressed the view that stretches out before you. Rumour has it the the famous explorer Humboldt fell to his knees at seeing the beauty of it. The best place to see the valley is from the Humboldt Mirador on the La Cuavas (east) side and it's free! You can get coffe and refreshments nearby. Well worth a trip out. You can get there by bus, route 101, or of course by car.

Take a local bus and walk to explore . It s very hilly so if you have a mobility problem the walking is not for you.

On our recent holiday we visited Tenerife and took a local taxi to explore the island. We stopped at a viewpoint from where we could view the Volcano in the distance and had a beautiful view of the valley below. We enjoyed our shopping at Puerto de la Cruz. So worth a visit!

Beatifull nature and views (Teide and sea). Tip: combine with a visit to puerto de la cruz or with a visit to the national park Teide.
