Race Bike Tour Pico ViejoWe are starting in Guia de Isora on an altitude of approx. 600m and first cycle in the direction of Chio - the area where the last volcanic eruptions took place. Responsible for the fascinating landscape, in which the lava seems to have become solid only minutes ago, is the volcano “Chinyero” – which erupted the last time in 1909. Black lava ashes and juicy green pine trees seem our way in the direction of the probably oldest volcano of the island – the Pico Viejo. Because of its strange form and situation it is also known as the “nostrils” of Teide.
Impressed by the differences of this rough landscape to the area of the Chinyero before, we carry on through the national park. Passing the highest mountain of Spain – the Pico del Teide – we soon leave the volcanic landscape by heading to the south. Once again big forests of pine trees are awaiting us before we enjoy a breathtaking downhill to the coast of the island.
The kilometres and the altitude you ride are entirely up to you as we are accompanied by our courtesy bus.
