Mount Teide South Challenge (Southern Approach)

  • Tour Description

    A tour to Teide from the southern approach is our flagship tour. Whether you start from the café or ride on the intermediate level from Vilaflor, the roads, traffic, scenery and all-round experience is out of the world-a paradise for cyclists!

    We ride on the TF21 from Granadilla to Vilaflor, which is probably the most stunning climb on the island, before we stop for supplies. After Vilaflor, the climb continues through the Coronal Forest heading towards the majestic Teide. As we approach 2000 metres above sea level the air becomes a little thinner as the challenge becomes more intense. At Retamar we drop down in to the crater for a tour of the National Park and World Heritage site. We head towards the famous Parador Hotel, home of the pro teams when they´re riding on the island, with its amazing views of the mountain.

    After the climb back out of the crater we regroup before the big descent back via El Fronton to our start point for a delicious Canarian lunch that awaits us at base camp Club Activo! The tour concludes at the home of our good friends-Bike Point in Las Americas.
