Visit the Mystical Pyramids of Güímar

The six elongated pyramids near the village of Güímar were originally thought to be extremely ancient - but they were actually only built in the 19th century. The reason why remains a mystery, but the site has been thoroughly excavated and is open to the public, along with an exhibition about the original archaeologist who worked on the site, Thor Heyerdahl.

Set Sail with Dolphins and Whales

Tenerife is a great place to head out on a whale-watching tour, with the surrounding waters populated by schools of dolphins and the odd pod of whales. One particularly excellent area for whale-watching is in front of the steep cliffs of Los Gigantes in the area of Santiago del Teide. Some of these tours also include the chance to go snorkeling and get up close to the wildlife.

Take Tour of One of the World’s Biggest Observatories

The Observatorio del Teide is one of the largest of its kind in the world, taking advantage of the altitude of Mount Teide and the relatively low levels of light pollution in Tenerife. Its powerful and modern telescopes collaborate with other observatories around the world to increase our understanding of space. You have to book a tour in advance, but it’s absolutely worth a trip.
