The Island of eternal spring


Tenerife is the largest of the Canary Islands, an archipelago in the Atlantic Ocean belonging to Spain. The Island is located 400 km from the coast of Marocco. Like the neighboring islands, Tenerife is an island of vulanic origin. The largest Vulcano on the Island is El Teide, wich at 3,718 m is the highest mountain in Spain.

Climate and Landscape


Thanks to the tradewinds and the location, the climate in Tenerife is even with temperatures from around 19°C in winter to 25°C in summer. This is why Tenerife is also called the island of eternal spring.

The island is characterized by high mountain formations. The northern and western half of Tenerife has vegetated and fairly fertile valleys, where there are also extensive banana plantations. 

The Oratava Valley is known for its highly variable natural beauty. The same goes for the Las Cañadas National Nature Reserve, located around the volcanoes Pico del Teide and Pico Viejo. The wild and rugged landscape of Las Cañadas is very similar to that of the moon.

Every year, more then 4 million tourists visit the island. The southwest of Tenerife is particularly well visited. Many accommodations can be found here. Puerto de la Cruz on the northern coast is another important seaside resort. Tenerife has two modern international airports that connect the island with various cities in Europe.

Hiking in the Canary Islands is very popular. Tenerife has hundreds of marked hiking trails which can be followed individually or under supervision.

The strip separating Tenerife from La Gomera is home to a colony of Indian pilot whales, as well as other dolphins and cetaceans. Several boats depart daily from the ports in the south to view the animals.

Tenerife’s cuisine has a wide range, especially in the tourist centers. Among the traditional specialties, the largest offer is papas arrugadas, mojos rojo or verde, various honey and seafood.
