    1. Snorkeling and Kayaking with Turtles

    Climb aboard for a 2.5-hour kayaking adventure in Tenerife and get up close and personal with dolphins and turtles in their natural environment. Observe the amazing creatures from a vessel that does not frighten them or disturb their natural habitat.

    Be surrounded by pods of up to 30 dolphins that sometimes put on a show by jumping high into the air. Home to up to 5 different species of dolphins, including bottlenose dolphins, the waters just off the island’s coast are ideal to marvel at these lovable creatures.

    While the bottlenose dolphins are the easiest to spot, other species inhabit the waters of the Atlantic Ocean, including rough-toothed dolphins, striped dolphins, and common dolphins.

    As wild animals, views cannot be guaranteed, but there is a 95% chance that you will encounter the animals o...

    Very knowledgeable tour guide. The kayaking was tough at times but worth the trip

  • El Teide: Full-Day Road Cycling Route on Fridays

    4. El Teide: Full-Day Road Cycling Route on Fridays

    Join the dream of every cyclist, crowning the longest climb in Europe and the most frequented by the international pack. Head to La Camella to start warming up for about 15 kilometers. The journey to Granadilla will be very comfortable and will allow you to loosen your legs a little. The climb is from 12 kilometers to 5 - 6% of slope. Once in Vilaflor, tackle the most complicated part, a 14-kilometer climb without rest. The average of the ramps is 8% but the main obstacle is the acclimatization due to the decrease of the pressure of the oxygen, as you climb about 2,100 on the way to Retamar. Descend to the Teide National Park, the highest area of the island Tenerife and Spain, just 8 kilometers to the National Parador, a place chosen by professional cyclists for their preseason. Head roughly 45 kilometers down to Playa de las Americas, enjoying the views.

  • Playa de las Americas: 3-Hour Quad Bike Forest Ride

    5. Playa de las Americas: 3-Hour Quad Bike Forest Ride

    Following pickup from your hotel, you will start your 60-kilometer quad bike drive from Playa de las Americas. You will venture along dirt tracks and secondary roads whilst viewing the stunning forests and ravines from a different perspective. Next, you will ascend into the hills to reach an altitude of up to 1,700 meters. You will then travel deep into the forests and admire the impressive landscapes of the foothills of Teide mountain in the villages of Arona and La Escalona. Later, continue to the village of Vilaflor at the foot of Teide, where you will get some time to explore and recharge. You will then make your way back to the starting point in Playa de las Americas where you will get more impressive views of the protected landscapes and endemic flora along the way.

    They picked us up at our hotel and dropped us back off. That was great especially being in a strange place for the first time. This excursion was fun. It was a beautiful view. We took paved side streets up the mountain through small towns. It was a dusty ride after we went off road. Make sure you have something to cover your nose and mouth and wear goggles. The guides were funny and friendly. They did not speak English well, and we did not speak Spanish, but we made it work. It was not a lot of forest to see, but it was nice. It was a mountain but not Mt. Tiede. If you like riding it will be a good change from the beach scene.

It is the least populated municipality on the island and has no coast, and was where the 1st Canarian saint, Hermano Pedro, was born in the 17th century.
