There are a host of reasons for visiting Tenerife – the largest of the Canaries, which the classicists rightly called ‘the Fortunate Isles’. Fortunate, too, in having such a wonderful winter and spring climate for visitors from the freezing north! An island of contrasts – miles of sun-drenched coastline surround Spain’s highest mountain, Mount Teide. Often snow-capped, the desolate volcanic slopes of Teide are a world away from the tropical vegetation of the banana plantations and the botanic gardens below. You stay in the north part of the island where the traditional villages, the UNESCO-listed university town of La Laguna and historic Puerto de la Cruz are totally different in feel to the commercialised resorts of the south.

  • 7 nights hb on Tenerife
  • Three walking excursions in very different areas of the island

DAY ONE: Flight to Tenerife Sur Reina Sofia Airport. Transfer to your hotel (about one hour away) for seven nights half board accommodation.

DAYS TWO TO SEVEN: In resort with three included walking excursions in different parts of the island. Transfer times to the start of each walk is about one hour. On Walk 1 there is normally a stop at the Teide National Park Visitor’s Centre before the walk.

Walk 1: Mount Teide. A full day excursion onto Mount Teide, with 3-4 hours walking on the mountain slopes (breathtaking views), and time to sightsee as well. A reasonably level route will be chosen by your walking guides, according to the weather on the day. Total distance 5-6 miles, reasonably level but at an altitude of around 8000ft.

Walk 2: Anaga. Your second excursion is to the north-east of the island, for a walk in the Rural Park of Anaga, an area of volcanic cliffs and Laurisilva forests rich in wildlife. Total distance 4.4 miles, with climbs of approx 300m.

Walk 3: Teno. The final included excursion is a full day trip to the extreme north-west of the island, where the Teno area lies, by- passed by the traffic and seemingly by time itself. You walk in the hills above Garachico, whose harbour was filled in by a lava flow in the 18th century. This is a full day excursion, with 3-4 hours walking and time for other exploring, too. Total distance 5 miles with climbs of approx 350m.

Apart from your three included excursions, you are free to relax and enjoy the extensive facilities of your hotel, or to explore Tenerife, either independently or on an optional excursion, as you prefer.

DAY EIGHT: Free time until your transfer to the airport for your return flight.

Extend your holiday – extra week’s stay available in resort.

We thoroughly enjoyed our holiday and, as usual, everything was to a very high standard. North Tenerife was a revelation, having been in the South. The Coach Driver, Walking Guides, Walks and Preferred Travel Services Tour Director were particularly excellent! Holiday was 100% perfect. All Guides and Representative were very helpful and considerate. This is our fourth Walking Holiday with Preferred Travel and we continue to recommend you to our friends.

Miss K, Co. Antrim

Who knew that Tenerife had such fantastic walking! The 3 walks were very different and all were spectacular. Nauzet & Concha were excellent guides and could not have been more helpful. Thanks to all.

Mr & Mrs B, Edinburgh

Another most excellent week in the care of your company! This is the second holiday I have had with you and certainly hope it will not be my last. This was the first walking holiday I have ever done and was a little bit apprehensive about it, but I needn’t have been. The utmost care was taken by your local representative to ensure that all of us who were less sure or slightly less competent were able to enjoy ourselves every bit as much as those who were full of experience and fitness! The hotel was excellent beautifully sited with marvellous views and spacious rooms. Excellent food and all staff tried tremendously hard to make our stay enjoyable. Thanks to your rep, whose untiring efforts to look after us and ensure we all had a good time were absolutely marvellous. Looking forward to selecting my next trip!

Mr W, Cheshire

Great weather, great walks with excellent guides. Good company and very helpful representative. Hotel gardens were very nice too.

Mr & Mrs McL, Aberdeenshire

My second walking holiday with Preferred Travel Services in Tenerife and had just as wonderful a holiday as before despite the clouds, mist and rain. Delighted to have Concha as our rep again and Nauzet and Joanna as excellent local guides - very informative and caring. I think this group of walkers was the best group I have been with. Many thanks.

Mr & Mrs G,, Tyne & Wear

A well organised holiday that achieved all that we hoped for. Your representative was efficient, friendly and informative, responding with a wealth of knowledge to any questions. She was sympathetic and unobtrusively in control thereby making the walks run smoothly. Hotel accommodation was very good, meals and service excellent, weather mostly kind which resulted in a very enjoyable break from the harsh winter already experienced back in Britain. This is our third walking holiday with Preferred Travel Services and undoubtedly will not be the last.
