On Tenerife it is forever springtime, the sunny climate, glorious flowers, balmy temperatures and majestic scenery make it a perfect antidote to winter. A rugged and spectacular island, it has an incredible variety of landscapes to explore.
On this varied twin-centre walking holiday, you stay in both the east and west of the island and have a rental car provided, so it is easy to discover the most dramatic and unknown regions the island has to offer*.
You begin in the Anaga Rural Park in the east where plunging valleys of prehistoric protected lauresilva forest and steep terraces of vines are dotted with tiny white washed cottages here, and friendly local bars welcome walkers with open arms. You then cross over to the west where spectacular circular walks take you past crimson lava flows and shattered rock pinnacles below the snow-capped summit of Mount Teide, whose National Park is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. At almost half the height of Everest, it towers over the entire island! The authenticity of the 'Isla Baja' area is fiercely protected and the town of Garachico has won awards for its preservation.
For the first part of your holiday, you stay near Guimar in a gorgeous traditional Spanish finca (farm) with a lovely pool, where spacious rooms have pretty terraces with mountain views, set among avocado and citrus trees. In the west, your base is a beautifully converted nobleman's mansion in the coastal fishing village of Garachico, where we've left you free to choose your restaurant for dinner as there is a wealth of choice in the pretty cobbled traditional streets.
* As most recommended walks do not start directly from the hotels, a rental car is included in your tour price.
