Breathtaking scenery awaits you, probably the most impressive landscapes Tenerife has to offer. Chris Froome said, “It's like traveling to Mars”. After a cafe stop at the mythical Parador Hotel and a photo opportunity with Mount Teide in the background, there is only three kilometers more of climbing before another spectacular descent to Los Cristianos (the same as King’s Day).
