Things to do whilst on holiday in Tenerife
Ride a cable car up Mount Teide - Spain's highest peak and the third tallest volcanic structure in the world. From here you will be spellbound by majestic panoramas of the island as well as views of Gran Canaria, La Palma, La Gomera and El Hierro in the distance. Teide National Park also boasts fantastic hiking trails.
Embark on an ocean adventure in a submarine safari; with just a small number of commercial submarines available across the globe this is certainly a unique experience. Alternatively, stay above water and sail out on a catamaran for whale and dolphin-watching expeditions.
Tenerife offers endless possibilities for adventure. The Siam Waterpark provides terror-inducing slides, child-friendly water rides, and a man-made white sand beach, catering to all visitors. Loro Parque is a Grand Zoo with a sealife section hosting incredible ocean creatures such as orcas, penguins and sharks. Las Aguilas Jungle Park offers fun jungle obstacle courses and is famous for its free flying birds of prey. It features lions, tigers, monkeys and leopards among other exotic wildlife. Plus, performers put on death-defying spectacles in which they somersault from an 82ft plank into a small pool.
Finally, Tenerife's flamboyantly colourful carnival is unmissable and second only to that of Rio.
