La Esperanza. Return via La Orotava
This route goes along the dorsal range of Tenerife climbing slowly from La Laguna up to 2,000 metres of Las Cañadas in 43 Kilometres.
This is the most advisable way to go to the National Park as it gives one opportunity to get continuous views of the Teide above the sea of clouds.
Leaving el Puerto de la Cruz by the motorway to Santa Cruz de Tenerife one must take the C-824 at La Laguna, just after Los Rodeos airport in the direction of La Esperanza and Las Cañadas.
From this point on, the road starts to rise slowly through green countryside which then changes to a pine-wood for almost all the way. The tree tops of the Canary pines have a lot of foliage in La Esperanza where it is possible to take strolls along tracks and paths
