Tenerife

Some describe Tenerife as having ‘many worlds in one place’, which is partly due to the ‘micro-climatic’ environment. While the Island is lucky enough to endure year round sun and warmth, the weather can change quite dramatically from region to region. The South is usually doused in warmth and sunlight causing the southern terrain to bear resemblance to the desert, particularly at the hottest times of the year. The north endures the occasional rainfall but stays warm, keeping it green and luscious with impressive forests up on the hills. The craters of Las Canadas offer walkers a lunar experience at over 2,000 metres above sea level and  Mount Teide is a huge, rugged, steep sided volcanic peak and is the highest peak in the whole of Spain at 3,800m. Walking on its flanks is an incredible experience and  therefore we have included this opportunity in our holiday.

 

Tenerife offers an amazing variety of landscapes ranging from semi deserts to perpetually, moist laurisilva 'cloud forests', from rugged cliff coasts to high mountains, from fertile cultivation terraces to awesome rocky barrancos carved deep into multi coloured layers of volcanic bedrock.

 Tenerife is not all about sharp, high ascents, there are some spectacular coastal walks around the Island offering a taste of Canarian culture as you pass coastal cottages, local hidden beaches, gaze at the dramatic cliffs and maybe even come across some of the banana plantations.

The hotel was excellent, I was in the annex & the room was lovely & big & clean. Hotel staff was really friendly & were always happy to help with anything, the food was excellent. Good choice of food available everyday & with it being a buffet you could have as much or as little as you liked you got to try everything!! Jill was an excellent leader. Brilliant knowledge of the area was always on hand to help anyone who needed it & a great sense of humour. This is the 2nd Secret hills holiday I have been on & I have nothing but praise.
