IS IT POSIBLE TO PRACTICE ADVENTURE TOURISM IN TENERIFE?
The island of Tenerife is perfect for living new thrilling experiences. Its natural features, and sports and leisure installations enable you to live authentic adventures.
One of the factors people take into consideration when they decide their holiday destinations is if the place offers any excitement. For many visitors travelling is about living unforgettable adventures. Therefore, one may ask himself if Tenerife presents all the characteristics and activities of a true adventure island.
Then, let us think about what we really seek when we decide we want to live an adventure. An adventure implies living new experiences, not knowing if you will reach the objectives proposed in the beginning. Whatever the result, that feeling of uncertainty is always accelerating. Adventures take us away from the predictability of our day-to-day routines, and provide us with unexpected feelings, perspectives and motivations.
Here are the reasons why Tenerife is the perfect place for you if you like adventure tourism:
TENERIFE IS AN ISLAND (OBVIOUS FACT, BUT HIGHLY EXOTIC FOR MANY PEOPLE)
That Tenerife is not a typical paradise island with pristine waters is a well-known fact. Nevertheless, one must admit travelling to an island is always an adventure. To begin with, you cannot simply take your car and drive to get here. Catching a train or a boat is the first adventure, for they are the only ways you will be able to reach your destination.
Additionally, what characterizes islands is that the sea surrounds their entire perimeter. This, for many visitors is a very attractive feature.
A 342 KM PERIMETER WASHED BY THE ATLANTIC OCEAN
In case you are seeking adventure in Tenerife, the fact that the wide-open Atlantic Ocean washes over the shores of the island might be of special interest to you.
Oceans have always been great sources of adventure. In Tenerife, you will have the chance of submerging yourself into the volcanic sea-bottoms. Go snorkeling in coves and pools with crystalline waters. Go sailing, surfing (windsurf, kitesurf, paddle-surf and all the “surfs” you can imagine), kayaking, whale watching, etc. Or simply go hiking along the shore and explore landscapes full of extraordinary beauty.
AN ISLAND OF VOLCANOES
There is no doubt that the volcanic nature of the Canary Islands is the main theme of the different landscapes we can find in them, and which provide an infinite number of adventures.
Climb to the highest peak in Spain, 3.718 m.a.s.l. Walk over the petrified lava flows. Pedal through sinuous roads between volcanoes. Discover the flora and fauna of a 100% volcanic land. Climb on volcanic rock. Become a speleologist in the fifth deepest volcanic tube in the world.
THE SKY OF TENERIFE
Enjoy land and sea, but if you are really seeking adventure in Tenerife, do not forget the skies. You will be able to plough through it in a paraglide, helicopter, plane and many others during the day. While at night, you will discover the reason why the sky of the Canary Islands is a protected sky.
FORESTAL PARK TENERIFE, THE PLACE WHERE ALL FACTORS CONVERGE TO LIVE AN AUTHENTIC ADVENTURE IN TENERIFE
As you ascend or descend to el Teide following the road TF-24, which has magnificent exemplars of Canary pine-tree (Pinus canariensis) along both sides of the road, you can find Forestal Park Tenerife at an elevation of 1400 m.a.s.l. Here, you can find a realm of adventure in the Canary pine-trees, where you can fly through the forest riding on zip-lines. Watch the see far away from a unique 30m viewpoint or walk over volcanic soils discovering their flora and fauna. Come, enjoy the adventure and put your limits to the test in the biggest treetop adventure park in Tenerife.
