Mount Teide West Side Approach Road Bike Tour

  • Tour Description

    Our ride to Mount Teide has become an iconic ´must do´ ride in the past few years and our approach from the west side is our most popular! You can start from Chio or Los Paleos, 600 metres above sea level. You´ll enjoy spectacular views of the Teno mountain range and the neighbouring islands of La Gomera and La Palma as you ride ever closer to Mount Teide!

    The next stop is Boca Tauce where you have the chance to get up close to this majestic volcano (Mnt Teide) that last erupted over 100 years ago! From here we´ll ride a few extra kilometres into the crater to marvel at the mountain from a different perspective.  It´s a unique experience riding at over 2000 metres above sea level. As with all of our tours, our riders can go at their own pace whilst being looked after by our on-the-road guides and our vehicle support!

    Following a climb back out of the carter, we´ll regroup at Retamar and prepare for our 25 kilometre decent where a typical Canarian lunch awaits at our café in San Miguel where we can share our experiences of a truly special day! The tour ends with an optional downhill section to Las Americas where the tour concludes.
