Adeje Things to Do Tips by Veghel
Adeje Things to Do: 14 reviews and 16 photos
The northwest of Tenerife is a beautiful area with deep valleys and steep rocks. The orientation of the slopes determines if they are brown (south-faced) or greed (north-faced).
Colourful flowers (northwest Tenerife)
I would like these in my garden at home!
Tenerife's north coast
The north coast of Tenerife is very different from the touristical south coast.
The landscape is colourful, with lots of trees and flowers. Along the coast line there are many banana plantages.
The villages are still very quiet and people don't speak German or English.
Lizzard on Mount Teide
There are numerous lizzards on Mount Teide and the surrounding areas. In some places, these friendly animals are used to tourists and you can approach them very closely to make beautiful pictures.
The size of the lizzards: I think 10 to 15 cm on average, so rather small.
Gondola lift to Mount Teide (3718 m)
The picture shows the upper cone of Mount Teide and the gondola lift that brings you almost to the top.
Flora on Mount Teide
At the base of the upper cone of Mount Teide, at an altitude of 2000 to 2500 m there are some remarkable flora like the ones captured on this picture.
On top of Mount Teide (3718)
The picture is taken at 3550 m at the top station of the Teide gondola lift. The real top of Teide (3718 m) is only accessible if you have special permission from the Authorities in Santa Cruz.
From the top station of the lift, two footpaths go in opposite directions. Take them both
Warning: take warm clothes with you. Long pants and trouses are the minimum, a suitable jacket is advised.
Tip: be there early in the moning and take the first gondola up. If you arrive later, there may be long queues and the sky is less clear.
At the base of the upper cone of Mount Teide
This pictue is taken at a height of about 2300 m, at the foot of the cone of Mount Teide. The base of the gondola to the top is behind the rocks in the center of the picture.
Mount Teide (3718 m) seen from the northwest
Rent a car and drive up Mount Teide. It's a phantastic experience! Within about 45 minutes, you drive from sea level up to about 2500 m at the base of the gondola that goes almost to the top of Mount Teide.
On your way up, you see the landscape changing rapidly. The higher you go, the lower the temperatures and the more precipitation.
