The Teide volcano from above
At 3718 metres above sea level, one of the most impressive volcanoes in Europe is Mount Teide. It is the third highest volcano in the world, after Mauna Kea and Mauna Loa in Hawaii. Flying over it is an unforgettable experience, and you’ll leave with a perspective that few people get to enjoy. You will be afforded close up views of lava flows formed in 1909 during the last volcanic eruption, and be overcome by the majesty of Teide National Park, the most visited park on the continent. On this tour, you will also see the Orotava vineyards (Puerto de la Cruz) and the Vilaflor alpine area.
La Caleta: the fishing village
If you have already travelled to La Caleta from your luxury residence on Tenerife, you will be surprised by the change of perspective afforded by the view from a helicopter. The south coast of Tenerife has the most beautiful ravines you can imagine, and La Caleta opens up before your eyes as one of the island’s true treasures. Rocky beaches, difficult to reach on foot, can be seen in detail from above, and you will be surprised by the number of hidden spots and trails visible from the air.
The vertigo of the cliffs, from the sky
From the Puerto de los Gigantes you can begin a cinematic journey over the cliffs of Tenerife, which rise from 300 to 600 metres and, if you are lucky, you will be able to spot dolphins swimming around in the waters below. It’s a natural spectacle more than worthy of being filmed from the air. On this tour you can also see picturesque villages, such as Masca, surrounded by lush vegetation; Garachico, with its white houses shimmering in the sun; and Icod de los Vinos, where the 1000-year-old Drago tree stands that has been declared a national monument.
Fly to the south of Tenerife
A 25-minute car journey from your luxury property on Tenerife will deliver you to the beaches of Los Cristianos and Las Americas, but there are incredible places on the south of the island that you can only see by helicopter. Get ready to see the hardened lava flows that extend from the Guaza Mountain to the ocean and to take exceptional pictures of Roque del Conde and the Ifonche trails and their impressive ravines.
