Southern Tenerife Tour with Vilaflor, Banana Plantation & Wine Tasting
Excursions & day trips

Southern Tenerife Tour with Vilaflor, Banana Plantation & Wine Tasting

Dramatic landscapes and rugged, volcanic shores come as standard in Tenerife. But little is said about the rich agriculture the island offers. On this tour, you'll journey through the south for a glimpse into the island's culture and identity. You'll see how locally grown bananas go from farm to table, explore the lofty village of Vilaflor de Chasna and sample local wines. Ivan, one of our expert local guides, says, ‘Vilaflor was once called Chasna, but when Captain Pedro de Bracamonte visited, he spotted a beautiful Guanche girl. “Vi la flor de Chasna,” he cried – meaning “I've seen the flower of Chasna” – and thereby coined the new name of the village.'The dry climate and year-round sunshine make the Canaries a perfect place to grow bananas. This fruit is Tenerife's main export, reducing the carbon footprint by supplying the rest of Spain and beyond. We'll find out more on a tour of a local plantation, where you'll learn all about banana cultivation. There'll also be a chance to taste different varieties, as well as try products made from the bananas. Next, we'll visit Vilaflor. Perched on the southern slope of Mount Teide volcano, the views down to the coast from 1,400 metres above sea level are wonderful. The village has an almost Alpine feel that differs from the tropical coastline – it has the largest pine forest in the Canaries on its doorstep. After a look around the village, we'll enjoy a tour and a tasting at an award-winning family-owned winery.

Introducing Tenerife

An island of natural beauty, amazing sea life and great gastronomy, Tenerife – the largest of the Canary Islands – is jam-packed with activities to satisfy any traveller. It’s no wonder that it’s popular with lots of holidaymakers, including families, nature lovers and adventure seekers.

Top six things to do in Tenerife

1. Visit Teide National Park

This UNESCO-listed national park is home to one of the world’s highest volcanos, Mount Teide. At 3,718m above sea level, it can even be seen from many of the other Canary Islands. If you want to see the volcano up close, you can take a cable car up its slopes and admire the views over Tenerife and its neighbouring islands. Join a guided walking tour and discover hiking trails through the park’s otherworldly landscapes. Or choose a sunset tour and toast the sun going down before getting to know the night sky with some stargazing.

2. Spend the day at Siam Park or Loro Parque

Thai-themed Siam Park is an ideal day out for families and thrill-seekers alike. It regularly features on lists of the world’s top waterparks, thanks to its huge selection of slides, rides and rapids.

Loro Parque is one of the best ways to discover the secrets of the animal kingdom, thanks to specially adapted areas for each of the species that live there. A journey through the Animal Embassy gets you close to the action – there’s a huge parrot reserve with species from across the globe. Plus, you’ve got a range of shows, too – exotic birds, sea lions, dolphins and orcas are all in the line-up. This place is all about education, too, so you’re likely to learn a thing or two about wildlife and conservation during your unforgettable day out.

3. Try wild whale and dolphin watching

The waters surrounding Tenerife are home to many species of whales and dolphins. Bottlenose dolphins and pilot whales can be spotted year-round, while more than 20 other species make seasonal visits to a protected zone off the island’s southwest coast. Book one of the daily boat excursions departing from the south of the island for your chance to catch a glimpse of these creatures in their natural habitat.

4. Get out on the water

If watersports are your thing, then Tenerife is the place for you. Here, you can try out surfing, jet-skiing, body-boarding, paddle-boarding and kayaking, to name but a few. And thanks to the island’s rich marine life, the diving and snorkelling scene is top-notch – turtles, rays and octopuses are regularly spotted around the shores.

5. Discover Tenerife’s foodie scene

You can dive into the culinary culture of Tenerife with a gastronomic tour. From cheese tasting to vineyard visits, there are experiences to suit all tastes. Of course, you’ll find traditional Spanish food on offer, but there are also a few dishes unique to the Canaries that are worth trying, too. Keep an eye out for papas arrugadas con mojo – translating as wrinkled potatoes with spicy sauce, these potatoes are cooked in heavily salted water, causing them to shrink and giving them their unusual name. Mojo sauce has got a kick to it – so tread carefully if you’re not a fan of spice.

6. Make a stop in colonial old towns

Dotted throughout the island, you’ll find history-steeped villages, towns and cities that deserve a detour. The capital, Santa Cruz, blends a mazy old town with a modern seafront scene. Nearby La Laguna is a UNESCO World Heritage Site – thanks to its well-preserved colonial architecture – while La Orotava lines up pretty pastel-coloured townhouses. Speaking of easy-on-the-eye spots, Garachico’s whitewashed homes stand out against its black volcanic coastline, and tiny Masca is perched on a ridge overlooking a deep valley.
