Getting to Tenerife (flight information)
There are two airports on the island of Tenerife, one on the north side (Tenerife Norte, TFN, also known as "Aeropuerto de Los Rodeos") and the other one on the south of the island (Tenerife Sur, TFS, also known as "Aeropuerto Reina Sofía"). Both airports are at about 2.5 hours flying time from Madrid, and about 3 hours from Barcelona. San Cristóbal de La Laguna lies 5 km from TFN, and 65 km from TFS, with a motorway link covering the full journey in both cases. The easiest access is from the northern airport (TFN) along the TF-5 motorway and it takes about 10 min.
Getting to your Hotel (local transport)
From Tenerife South Airport (TFS)
- You can either catch a taxi (about 65 €); or
- Bus line 111 (5,40 €) from TFS to Santa Cruz de Tenerife (main bus terminal). Until 22:30 h, departure frequency is 30 min, starting at 6:00 h. Bus desk (labelled TITSA) is located at the extreme north side of the terminal and the bust stop is just outside of the terminal in front of the Bus desk. The journey to Sta. Cruz bus station is about 40 min.
From there, the most convenient option to reach La Laguna is to take the tram (“tranvía”) as it is really comfortable and the end of the line is very close to Hotel La Laguna Nivaria (3 min. walk). As you go out of the Bus terminal station in Sta. Cruz (East exit facing to the sea) you will see the tram station (it is the terminal station). Your destination is “La Trinidad”, the other end of Line 1. Alternatively, a taxi from the Bus terminal station in Sta. Cruz to Hotel Nivaria will cost you about 14 €.
From Tenerife North Airport (TFN)
- We recommend you to take a taxi as it will just cost you about 7 €. Alternatively, bus line numer 102, 107 and 108 will take you to near the Bus terminal station in La Laguna. From there, a 15 min. walk to Hotel Nivaria.
Note: The local bus company is called TITSA, buses are painted bright green, and the local name for bus is "guagua" or "autobus".
