Whether for vacations, for work or for that sudden break, whatever pleases you, the fact is that the verb “to travel” means more than just preparing a suitcase, buying a basic travel guide and taking a plane or train. To travel is to dream, to experiment, to get to know a new place with a different accent and other customs, it is to change our routines and be happy.
For all these factors to coexist in harmony, it is necessary to analyze the destination calmly. Why? In order to know the highlights, set priorities and to highlight those experiences that we wouldn’t miss for the world. So, if we have chosen the island of Tenerife as a destination, there will be things like “the climb to Teide” that can’t be missed. But what other experiences could be part of this beautiful Canary Island?
Pass through Santa Cruz on foot
While visiting a city by car or bike is an equally good option, there’s nothing like discovering any destination on foot. It is calm and restful and gives you time to discover each beauty spot and every panorama. Walking in Tenerife is simply a pleasure. Browsing the port or losing yourself in its downtown streets (such as Bravo Murillo) are some of the ‘musts’ of every trip to the island.
Pure volcanic magic
Visiting the Canary Islands -and specifically Tenerife- is to be aware that their volcanic DNA will be part of our daily planning; and that the island emerged from volcanic eruptions which have created unique spots of indescribable beauty. Beyond Teide, the visitor should not miss the volcanoes of the Seven Fountains, the Fania and Arafo or the amazing Cueva del Viento, the biggest volcanic lava tube in Europe.
Visit the island by boat
Whether in your own boat itself or a hired boat (of which there are a lot and at a great price), the fact is that few trips are as beautiful as touring the island by boat. Besides having a spectacular panoramic view from the sea, visitors can access almost private coves that can only be reached like this.
