Teide La Esperanza – Carretera

This route will take you from our Pedalis Point in El Mayorazgo to the magnificent Teide National Park through the enchanted forest of La Esperanza. The first third of the ride climbs steadily under a canopy of Canary pines that occasionally open to stunning views of the north face of Mt. Teide as well as the Güímar Valley to the east. At about 2000m of elevation, the road levels off and the trees start giving way to the volcanic landscapes Tenerife is renowned for. We ride through the breath-taking (not only due to the elevation) views of the National Park, and then make our way back along the same route.
