Tenerife is a true paradise for outdoor adventure lovers. We went with part of our team to visit Tenerife to get to know this island where we now also provide some great sea tours. As Tenerife has much more to offer than just sea tours, we’d like to share our favorite must-do activities in Tenerife.
Our colleague Nathalie already wrote a nice article about the best things to do in Tenerife. In fact, most of the things we did while visiting this wonderful island are already listed there.
You can find our must-do activities in Tenerife here:
We love nature, and not only the sea, so we decided to explore the North Western part of the island a bit, by foot. Cao, a local guide from Anaga Experiences, took us for a 3-hour hike in the stunning Anaga mountains. We highly recommend hiking with a guide as you’ll get to know so much about the local culture, nature and everything you want to know. Surely must-do activities in Tenerife for mountain lovers!
In Tenerife, there are several kayak tours. There are two in Los Cristianos, one to go find wild dolphins, which Lianne did and tells us about here. And one to go snorkeling with sea turtles. We choose to do one to explore the impressive Anaga mountains from a different perspective, from Playa de Las Teresitas. We’ll share our experience soon, here on the blog.
We went for an incredible sailing experience in Tenerife, departing from El Colón. We’ll share this unforgettable experience in detail soon! You can choose for a half day tour, a sunset tour or a private sailing tour. It’s up to you! Did you know it’s almost for sure you’ll find some wild whales and dolphins along the boat trip?
4. Scuba diving
Fábio (SeaBookings’ CTO) and Carla went to have their first diving experience in Tenerife. They had a blast. They say there’s so much to see and even reminded them the colors and biodiversity they saw when they were snorkeling in Thailand! Fábio shared his memorable experience on the blog.
Yes, you can go exploring the underwater world without getting your hair wet! Lianne did this unique experience when she was visiting Tenerife. You can read her personal experience here.
6. Horse riding
Femke, one of SeaBookings’ co-founders, is crazy about horses. So, she grabbed the chance to go horse riding to explore the local nature on a natural way. She highly recommends Horse Riding Adventures in Tenerife.
7. Natural swimming pools
Along the coast, you can find many natural swimming pools. They’re great for snorkeling and for kids to enjoy the sea in a safe way. We really liked the natural pools around Playa La Jaquita.
8. Driving up to Teide
This drive is definitely worth it. The scenery is simply unique, like you’re on Mars!
