If what you are looking for this holidays is to lie down in the hammock, enjoy the weather and do absolutely nothing, Tenerife is your place! If on the contrary, you are looking for adventures, disconnection and unrepeatable experiences, this is also your Island!
The great variety of landscapes, the innumerable beaches and imposing mountains, make the island the perfect setting to fill your time of activities and disconnect from the frenetic pace of the routine. Go get going! and discover the best adventure and relaxation activities to rest while you get fit.
We suggest you to start with some outdoor activities. Tenerife can be a paradise for lovers of hiking and mountain sports.Numerous routes dot its territory and allow you to mix with nature and vegetation to get away from work altogether. The southern part of the island has many options to start your holidays in the best way.
One of them is the Paisaje Lunar. This lunar landscape is a circular route that has medium difficulty runs through an environment full of conical figures eroded by the climate of the area and resembling a modernist cathedral, which result is a rocky spectacle that seems taken from another planet.
Another essential route on foot and that we already showed in our previous post about routes to ride on a bike, pass through the ravine that gives its name to the trail, Barranco del Infierno. With low difficulty, it is one of the classic itineraries of the island and one of the most visited. The route advances through a Special Nature Reserve with limited access, so it is essential to make a reservation.
If you dare with a more demanding route and with high difficulty, try the ascent to the highest peak in Spain. The Ascent to the Teide will take you up to 3,718 m. of altitude through an itinerary that combines tracks and trails and that allow to know places of great geological interest. 6 hours of ascent with a progressive change of height and you will reach the refuge of Altavista where there is the possibility of staying overnight if the permit is processed beforehand to await the dawn and face the last stretch to the crater of the volcano. After the effort deléitate with the views from the top.
Discover on foot amazing landscapes and trails where disconnecting from everything can be a great start, but it will be much more interesting and satisfying if done on the back of a horse. Horse routes are popular in different areas of the island and you will find many options to practice this activity. The combination of sport and fun make this discipline more than just a sport. A different way to enjoy and discover nature fully connected with it.
We leave the mountain to get into the sea. Diving is another activity that you can not miss if you are passionate about adventure. The crystal clear waters and the great variety of marine landscapes make the island a fantastic setting for scuba diving. Tenerife has numerous centers for users of any level, from diving baptisms for beginners to diving for experts. One of these centers you can find in our hotel GF Isabel and has ideal facilities to live a great aquatic experience. You will discover an amazing seabed, full of species that will make your Canarian experience unforgettable.
The Tenerife coast has one of the most beautiful coastlines in Spain and is the perfect stage to enjoy water sports. Sailing in a kayak in Tenerife, in the Los Gigantes cliff, is undoubtedly one of the most fun adventure activities we can enjoy in the nature of the island.
After crossing paths on foot or on horseback, submerging in the waters of the Atlantic Ocean and kayaking along the coasts of Tenerife, you will not be willing to do anything, but to enjoy a moment of relaxation.
In GF Hoteles we bet on rest and relaxation as a fundamental part of your vacation and that is why we have the best options to achieve a total disconnection.
