North Island Highlights & Wine Tasting
Information is not currently available.
Approximately 6½ Hours
A comfortable minibus transports you to the Alfredo Kraus concert hall, where you will take in beautiful views over Las Canteras Beach.
Continue to Arucas -- a town whose character includes cobblestone streets and gently senescent houses. Don't miss an outside view and a chance to snap some photos of the impressive neo-Gothic church here. Then, drive to the local rum distillery. Since you're here, it would be a shame not to taste the wares, wouldn't it?
Next, the drive takes you to Firgas -- also known as the Village of Water. Visit the watermill and the fountains to see how Firgas earned its nickname. In Moya, you will enjoy the breathtaking overview of the valley and some active volcanoes.
Follow winding roads and through an area of natural beauty, heading into one of the greenest valleys of the island -- the Agaete Valley. Your destination is Puerto de las Nieves and its Finca La Laja Vineyard. Taste a few local wines that have recently won some awards, as well as a variety of tapas. Agaete is Europe's northernmost coffee growing area, so you'll also have a chance to taste the local java before you head back to the port.
