Tenerife – a holiday on the most scenic island in the Canaries
Created by Mondo for Finnair
Stepping onto a lookout takes your breath away. Besides the thin mountain air, the landscape will leave you breathless: lava fields, endless rock formations and rugged hills. In addition to year round beach holidays, Tenerife is also excellent for hiking in the midst of astounding scenery.
The dizzying landscape is dominated by Mount Teide, the tallest mountain in the Canary Islands—and the whole of Spain—which reaches 3,718 meters above sea level. Standing on its top it is easy to imagine yourself on another planet instead of Tenerife.
Tenerife is the largest of the Canary Islands, so there are plenty of options for what to do. Sun worshippers will appreciate the infinite sandy beaches and wild water parks while nature travellers will find and endless number of experiences from inland Tenerife. The weather in Tenerife is mild throughout the year.
A wealth of suitable foot paths and mountain biking paths are available around the year. In addition to the volcanic scenery at Mount Teide, great hiking routes can also be found in the midst of the Canary Island pine trees in Bosque de la Esperanza. The neighbouring island La Gomera, which is only a short ferry trip away, offers an even greener scenery.
