Adrenaline-fuelled excursions

We know that the word ‘excursion’ for you – someone who likes enjoying unique experiences and doing unusual things – has a different meaning. As does the concept of leisure in Tenerife, especially in terms of spectacular places to visit.

  • VISIT THE VILLAGE OF MASCA | This small picturesque village is the prelude to one of the most beautiful gorge descents on the entire island. The downhill journey has a certain level of difficulty but ends on a lovely yet inhospitable beach that few people have had the privilege to explore. But remember, to enjoy this expedition, you will need to book in advance.
  • DISCOVER THE CUEVA DEL VIENTO | Mysterious and alluring in equal measure. This is an underground lava tube measuring 17 kilometres in length, the fourth-longest in the world. The cave branches off into three levels of passageways that are not suitable for the unadventurous. If you want to explore this cave, you can book here.
  • WHALE AND DOLPHIN WATCHING IN THEIR NATURAL HABITAT | Get in touch with any of the specialised companies that have signed the sustainability charter and that guarantee an environmentally-friendly service and commitment. They will give you the chance to discover the impressive marine life that inhabits the coasts of Tenerife, as well as the first Whale Heritage Site in Europe; a title granted by the World Cetacean Alliance.
  • ASCEND THE TALLEST PEAK IN SPAIN | This is an unforgettable experience, no question.  A visit to Teide National Park is one of the must-see excursions that all visitors to the island should experience. However, you can add a little spice to this adventure by deciding to come and ascend in cable car to the summit, go climbing on its volcanic walls, hiking in the high mountains or a night-time visit to enjoy this Starlight Destination.

You definitely shouldn’t miss the chance to ride the Atlantic and feel the ocean’s true power while enjoying one of these sports, which are king on the beaches of Tenerife.
  • DIVING | Diving or even snorkelling – its more accessible cousin – to discover the coast of this island from the deep is reserved for only a few brave souls who dare to descend into the magnificent and varied depths of the coasts around Tenerife.
  • CYCLING | Forget about driving around the island and join iconic dot after iconic dot through pedal power on surprising and unique roads. Not a bad idea, right?
