Depart the pier for a short drive to San Cristóbal de La Laguna, located in the centre of the Aguerre Valley at an altitude of almost 500 metres above sea level. Listed as a World Cultural and Heritage Site by UNESCO, La Laguna has maintained its historic centre in an exemplary state of conservation.
Centuries ago, La Laguna was the capital of the island. Its straight streets, large squares and grand monuments are best explored on foot.
Taking a step away from the holiday resorts and urban centres also enables you to discover a different Tenerife, where nature lives alongside the hard work of the inhabitants. Agriculture is the main source of employment here. Crops of tropical fruits, flowers and grapes cover the most fertile areas. The uneven terrain indicates how hard it is to plant vineyards in this area.
In the largest wine-producing area of the Canary Islands, we visit a "bodega", a traditional wine cellar, in the renowned winemaking town of Tacoronte. The tour then continues to the picturesque town of El Sauzal, where there is a highly rated wine museum and more wines to be savoured.
The excursion ends with the return trip to the pier.
