Teide National Park

Teide National Park

All who have been to the Island, and those who haven’t, will know of Tenerife through the Teide National Park. Standing amid a vast alien landscape, the Island’s most famous symbol rises 3,718 metres above sea level. Mount Teide is the third highest volcano in the world and the least Earth-like place on Earth.
The Ancient Dragon Tree

The Ancient Dragon Tree

What would someone 800 years old look like? On Tenerife, the Ancient Dragon Tree of Icod de los Vinos is estimated to be that old; a unique chance to see and touch such an incredibly old living being. A tree (actually, it’s a bush) of colossal size and which is more than a great-great grandfather: 20 metres around and 16 metres tall.
Anaga Rural Park

Anaga Rural Park

An area in the north-west of the Island where time seems to have stopped at the Tertiary Period. Hiking among the park’s lush Laurel Forests is like stepping back millions of years in time and it’s easy to imagine that witches and fairies once lived here.
Tenerife golf

Tenerife golf

A great way to combine your stay on the Island with a rewarding activity is to enjoy some golf, whether you’re an enthusiast or an expert. The spring climate of Tenerife enables you to play all year round. Its nine original courses - including El Tecina on the nearby island of La Gomera -, designed by top experts and with between 18 and 27 holes make Tenerife a veritable paradise for golfers.
Teno Rural Park

Teno Rural Park

The lucky 1,300 inhabitants of Teno Rural Park, a place of stunning natural beauty, live in the small towns of El Palmar, Teno Alto, Los Carrizales, Las Portelas and Masca. They make a living from livestock and farming, and the peace and tranquility which permeates the area has greatly shaped their philosophical outlook on life. It’s a great place for all kinds of outdoor activities, including hiking.
Los Gigantes Cliff

Los Gigantes Cliff

The name Los Gigantes (The Giants) was given for obvious reasons. This cliff in Santiago del Teide forms part of the Teno Rural Park and at certain points towers 600 metres above sea level, with virtually sheer walls which provoke a sense of vertigo even when seen from below.
Tenerife volcanoes

Tenerife volcanoes

Live your volcanic experience!. The Island’s volcanoes represent so much more than just Mount Teide. From beaches to canyons, lava flows through the very veins of the whole Island, a spectacular result of Tenerife’s volcanic birth.
Basilica of Candelaria

Basilica of Candelaria

Its white and beige tones provide stark contrast to the bronze statues of Los Menceyes (ancient pre-Spanish kings) standing alongside the basilica and the black volcanic sands of the beach at its feet. The religious value of this building is greatly enhanced by the treasure of incalculable spiritual value housed within: the exquisite statue of the Virgin of Candelaria, Patroness of the Canary Islands, highly revered by the islanders.
