Tenerife

Known for Family-friendly, Dining and Beaches

Tenerife is a box of surprises and daring contrasts. Bathe in its waters and explore its volcanoes, visit the highest peak in Spain, paraglide over the landscape and dance to the sounds of its Carnival.

How do you get to Tenerife?

Take advantage of an offer of flight + hotel to Tenerife, the island of eternal springtime, and visit one of the most beautiful natural rock formations, the Teide National Park. Take the cable car up some 2,230 miles above sea level to the peak and enjoy some magnificent views from the top.

Another central theme for Tenerife holidays is a myriad of beaches. Check out Las Américas or Los Cristianos, but don't miss the chance to explore the valleys and lava tubes that win anyone's heart in a land bathed by the sea. In the municipality of Icod de los Vinos, let yourself be swallowed up by the Cueva del Viento, considered the largest lava tubes in Europe, and venture into the unknown with a flashlight in one hand and your heart in the other. Why not hire a canoe and paddle among the cliffs of Los Gigantes in the south of Tenerife? Catch sight of spectacular landscapes against a backdrop of crystal-clear waters.

If adrenaline is your thing, take a tandem paragliding trip over the land. The Izaña track in the Teide national park will give you the biggest thrill of your life: jump from 1,350 miles up into the Martiánez lake and enjoy a privileged view of the Ortotava valley.

Don't forget to visit Santa Cruz de Tenerife, the island's capital, during its colourful Carnival festivities and lose yourself in the “Cuadrilátero” district, where you'll be part of an event that draws up to 250,000 people each year.

To get to Tenerife, you can fly to any of the two airports on the island. Hire a car to travel around the 772 square miles of the biggest island in the Canarian archipelago.

Book one of our low-cost Tenerife holidays and experience this large mishmash of shapes and colours where it is eternally spring: you'll change colour with its diverse landscapes, feel like an authentic geologist and live unforgettable experiences perfumed with the earth and tasting of the sea.
