Nature, Culture and History make this tour unique!

Visit to local coffee plantation and winery

The Canary Archipelago is an example of adaptation of tropical fruit trees, to subtropical conditions where the bonanza of our climate has enabled the diffusion of crops of all kinds of fruits. In these beautiful plantations we will see some examples, as well as other products deeply rooted in our culture like coffee and wine

Wine tasting

Canary wines are considered among the first massively exported wines in Europe. For centuries our wines were drunk and appreciated by the European and American elite. Today, our sun, the volcanic soil and our pre-phylloxera varieties allow us to offer you a superb and unique wine. Enjoy!

Ancient Secrets of Maipés de Agaete

Right at the foot of the Pinar de Tamadaba, in the northwest of the island, lies the Maipés Archaeological Park. Set in the village of Agaete, on the road to the Valley, the Maipés is a sacred site hidden underneath a volcanic lava plain.

Banana plantation

The image of the banana trees, the smell of the plant, the sweet and intense flavour of the fruit are already part of the Canarian culture. Exported to the continent since the late nineteenth century, it arrived in the Canary Islands from Equatorial Guinea introduced by Portuguese expeditionaries. History considers that once the crop was successfully settled on the islands, the Spaniards introduced it to American lands on colonization voyages to the New World.
