Drive across the lava fields of El Chinyero, to an original banana plantation and stop off in some untouched Canarian villages where you can sample local delicacies such as Papas Arrugadas con mojo (Salted potatoes with traditional red and green dipping sauces native to the Canary Islands).

Each group has a maximum of eight guests, so the tour still feels exclusive. The Twizy has no windows so you can enjoy an unobstructed view and feel the warm island breeze.
