Heart pounding, sweat dripping, and a smile plastered on your face. If this is your thing, Tenerife will please you more than you can imagine. This place is a beach bums dream, but for the adrenaline junkie, it’s a wonderland of activities that could last for as long as you want to stay here. This is just a taste…
If you’re willing to get up early, strap on some boots, and pump yourself up for some epic hiking and climbing, you will be handsomely rewarded. The Teide National Park is the spot to head to for some epic pathways, red-rock scenery from volcanic eruptions in the past, and of course stunning vistas of the island’s coastline. Be humbled to hike up the tallest mountain in Spain in this national park.
The Teno Rural Park, Anaga Rural Park and the Adeje are all worth a hike up as well. There are finca, or farm houses, to stay at the base of many of these hiking trails, so you can stay close by to the mountain you will conquer. If you’re worried about sweating bullets during your time here, the weather in Tenerife in October maintains a comfortable temperature as the cool air continues to flow through the region.
Water sports are a huge thing to do on this island, of course, there’s gorgeous azure waters surrounding the place! Try your luck at surfing or windsurfing. It’s a great way to have fun out in the water and it keeps the body fit. If you don’t want to exert too much energy, you could just hop on a jet ski and fly through the water.
If biking is your thing, Tenerife is a fantastic spot to get those wheel rolling down the mountains here. Road and dirt track are scattered around the island, some are easy peasy, and some are not for the faint of heart. Rent a bike easily and hit the trails.
