A sky full of Christmas stars
Can you imagine enjoying Christmas at more than 3,000 metres? On Mount Teide it is possible. Here you can ascend and observe the starry winter sky.
Whether as a family, as a couple or even alone, you can come up with the perfect plan to enjoy one of the most visited National Parks in Spain to the fullest. Would you like to reach the summit without effort? Then remember to book your ticket for the Teide Cable Car b. Or would you like to challenge yourself before the end of the year? Then take a look at the different routes that lead to the summit.
If you want to spend your holidays a little more relaxed, then you can take a guided tour of the facilities of the Teide Observatory, combine it with nocturnal astronomical observation or simply walk through the various natural attractions in the National Park. No matter what you prefer, Mount Teide is a must when travelling to Tenerife!
Winter under palm trees, Christmas on the beach
Another great option to enjoy Christmas in nature is to put on your best swimsuit and relax at one of the many beaches in Tenerife. There is something for every taste: blonde sand, black volcanic sand, pebbles, family beaches, lively or secluded beaches…
With a pleasant climate also in December, you sometimes wonder if you have not travelled in time towards the summer. Nevertheless, you can enjoy a slightly different Christmas atmosphere, which is accompanied by the sound of the waves. You should definitely make long beach walks or coastal walks, so you can enjoy the sun of Tenerife and the Christmas atmosphere.
