Social Trip

On the evening of Wednesday 15th June, there will be an additional social event. This will feature a guided tour of the beautiful historical town La Laguna followed by a wide selection of drinks and food at a stunning location.

After a short scenic coach drive following the green north coast, we'll discover La Laguna - the former capital of the island!

Its full name is Ciudad de San Cristobal de la Laguna (Saint Christopher). It is the cultural and religious center of the island, as it is the home of La Laguna University and of the Diocese Nivariense, Tenerife's old name. Its historic center features well-kept streets and squares, outstanding architectural monuments and traditional houses of the XVII and XVIII centuries. In La Laguna it is possible to appreciate the beauty of traditional urban Canarian design - the bright arrayed facades with the heavy, double wooden doors and charming balconies with small shops scattered down the narrow streets.

After some free time for exploration on your own, shopping or just a relaxed break at one of the squares... the group meets for delicious food and drinks before we drive back to the hotel.

Subsidised by KES International, tickets for the trip will cost only 30 Euro per person (including drinks / food and a guided tour.)
