Have as much adventure travel as you like on Tenerife Island.


Rent or buy your own holiday home and you'll have all the time needed because, adventure knows no time...

World air travel makes this easy nowadays and frequent cheap flights from Europe to Tenerife help, too.

For adventure you don't want to be limited by organized 'all inclusive' travel' such as offered for usually not more than 7 or 14 days vacations. Those tours are for relaxation or wild disco nights out, a 'change of tapestry', mainly.

Pack your bags for adventure rather and dive into the mysteries of Tenerife which surfaced from the ocean millions of years ago...
It was called the Gates of Hercules, a spot rather beyond permitted adventure in ancient Greek history and, is rumored to be part of the fabled sunken Atlantis.

A rented Tenerife car helps lots for your own adventure on the island. Even public buses provide some basic access.

Venture off beaten tracks into mountains where mist drops from pine and laurel trees of primeval forests...

Explore the tracks within bizarre, enchanting country only inhabited by birds, lizards and bats, a lone eagle or falcon and marvel at its rare indigenous plant life...

Climb mount Teide Tenerife, Spain's highest peak and world known volcano...

Find some of Tenerife unspoiled beaches hidden within lava rocks and snorkel and swim in their rock pools...

Do fishing on remote cliffs near the Faro del Teno...

Do some Tenerife adventure travel to commercially forgotten villages in the very north of Tenerife in the Anagas still untouched by tourism...

Do a Masca Teno adventure trip on your own. Masca has few rivals in the world...

Equip yourself with some basic Spanish language skills and a computer pocket translator...

Start talking to Tenerife's warm and welcoming locals... They don't mind when you talk Spanish with your hands and feet. Sample good island food like very fresh fish, sea fruits and tapas beyond the reach of tourist coaches...

Although the biggest of all Canary Islands only has 786 square miles be assured that many precious nooks, trails and hamlets can be found where you'll sometimes wonder how to spend the night.

You could even charter your own boat for adventure travel in Santa Cruz where you can also purchase the right license for venturing out to neighboring isles while number eight called Graciosa is not even on a map yet. Fantastic deep see diving, thrilling whale and dolphin watching awaits you near island shores.
