Yes, there is. However, information on internet is quite poor, therefore I describe my own experiences here. On 21 December 2012, I travelled from Gran Canaria airport via Las Palmas, Agaete, Santa Cruz de Tenerife and Los Cristianos to Santa Cruz de La Palma. The ferry company Fred Olsen operates many ferry-bus connections. I will describe my experiences ...

You can take the ferry with Fred Olsen. There should be buses from Tenerife South Airport to Santa Cruz de Tenerife. From the main bus station, there are then dedicated buses to the ferry terminal, from where there are several ferries per day to Gran Canaria. The bus from the intercambiador (bus station) to the ferry terminal (a short ride) is included in ...

I highly recommend visiting El Teide, the large volcano at the centre of Tenerife. It attracts visitors, but as it's quite remote, only the more adventurous bother to go there. The Teide National Park, which surrounds the volcano is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The cable car ride up the volcano is definitely worth a look, and the last 500 feet of walking to ...

You will need to go through UK immigration to change airports. I am assuming you are an Indian citizen and don't have a European residence permit. In that case, you will need a visa. Merely holding a short-stay visa (which is required to enter Spain) is not enough to qualify for visa-free transit. You won't be able to get this visa on arrival (in fact, you ...

I just found out that I will be able to access the peak! By booking a night at the Altavista refuge, they let us climb to the peak in the early morning (only)! Access to the crater It is advisable to leave the refuge at about 6 am, to reach the Teide crater before dawn. When you stay overnight at Altavista del Teide Refuge, you are entitled ...

With regards to Tenerife: http://therealtenerife.com/ This website is devoted to the parts of Tenerife that most websites gloss over. Most people’s holidays to Tenerife tend to involve heading to the sunny, purpose built resorts of the south. However much of the rest of Tenerife is where the Canarios live, work and play; a place where traditions and ...

There are two bus lines for Teide, 342 line and 348 but none of them are good for you. However, Titsa Buses are oriented to transportation, not tourism, so, Maybe the bus won't wait for you when you leave it. Some people use those lines for hiking through Las Cañadas or even to reach the peak. (Maybe this is what you want). Other options are a taxi, which I ...

Yes there are flights direct from Moscow to Tenerife, although these are not your regularly scheduled variety. There are charters operated by ВИМ Авиа and Transaero which can be booked from Chartex as well as charters operated by Aeroflot and Н5 that can be booked from Ticket-Charter. These are chartered flights, so restrictions and other issues may befall ...

From what it appears having looked on travel comparison sites for available flights there are no direct flights between Moscow & Tenerife. You didn't mention any particular date of travel so I chose a week departing 3rd April, returning 10th April 2013. Sample results from the comparison site kayak.co.uk indicate flights with a stop over in either ...
