The circular tour is one of the most popular routes that also pass through Tenerife's capital. The route starts at a low altitude and follows a typical altitude profile to the highest point, the Pico del Inglés viewpoint, and back down again. We ride parallel to the coast with beautiful views of the sea and past the jetties and docks of Santa Cruz. It goes up with a view to the volcano Teide and through a laurel forest area. The higher the route goes, the more winding it becomes. Special highlights of the tour are the viewpoints: at Abicor with a view of the north side of the Anaga Mountains and shortly afterwards of the spectacular landscape of the south side. At Pico del Inglés at 998 m, you should take a little more time to enjoy the spectacular view of Santa Cruz, Anaga, La Laguna and Mount Teide. The climbs on the tour reach a gradient of up to 11%.
