  • Tenerife: Whale & Dolphin Watching with Drinks and Snacks

    1. Tenerife: Whale & Dolphin Watching with Drinks and Snacks

    Let the wind whip your hair back and forth as you gaze out across the clear azure waters of Southern Tenerife in the Canary Islands on a 3-hour cruise. Along with a maximum of 11 other cruise mates, you will have plenty of space on board a luxury yacht to see the beauty of nature along the coastline and in the water. The area around the Canary Islands has petitioned to become a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and even without the official certification, you will soon discover why this part of the world is so beloved. Look out for dolphins and pilot whales playing joyfully in the wake of your ship, and look up for the bird life high above. This is nature at its best, and your captain will be sure to point out the most populated dolphin and whale spots along the way. If you have never had a chance to experience these magnificent creatures up close, it is an experience you will never forget. ...

    The trip was fantastic, the staff were very friendly and knowledgeable. Our Captain (Dani) was great!!! seeing the Whales was amazing!!!!

    This experience was really good. Really Nice people, Nice food And drinks, we saw whales and daulphins. I think the submarine part is not that useful (you can’t see anything but water when Boat is on movement, and when Boat is on stop you can only see grey little fishes)

    A must do in Tenerife. This was an amazing experience. Inés and Gustavo are great hosts and Félix and Ronald 20-year experienced paragliding pilots. At the beginning I was a bit hesitant to book the activity as I did not have experience with paragliding before, and I did not entirely like the idea of walking off a mountain. But it turned out to be extremely easy, safe and stress-free. The views are stunning, and the take off and landing are so easy that even my grandma could do it. It's just amazing to feel like a bird for 20 min. The way up the hill in the van made me a bit dizzy, if you get dizzy often I recommend to take sick motion pills. The flight is smooth and fresh. Afterwards you can get the pictures and videos of the flight from Overfly if you pay extra. During take off and landing you are the one filming, make sure to put the camara straight if you want to look a bit agile under the scenes.

  • Tenerife: Pico del Teide Full-Day Ascending Hiking Tour

    9. Tenerife: Pico del Teide Full-Day Ascending Hiking Tour

    Climb up the highest mountain in Spain – Pico del Teide – on this demanding day tour. You will start from the road through Cañadas towards El Portillo, reaching a height of approximately 2,300 meters. As the route gradually approaches the mountain, you will first reach the back of the Montaña Blanca with the "Huevos del Teide" (the eggs of Teide), huge black rocks. After 1.5 hours, the path through the pumice and lava fields becomes steeper and leads you to the refuge Refugio de Altavista. You will continue on across solidified lava flows to the mountain station of the cable car. You will then hike all the way to the summit of Mount Teide, using your pre-organized special permit. Enjoy the fantastic views of the Canary islands and experience the tranquility of the summit. At the end of the tour you will take the cable car back down to the starting point.

    Wholeheartedly recommended. Very well organised. Steffi and Lothar are the ideal guides to accompany groups or individuals to the top of the Teide. They understand it’s difficulty and are mindful of the perils and unpleasantness with regard to the great height difference one has to overcome in several hours (sleeping and being used to heights very close to the sea level, and then in a question of hours raising to 3700m). They possess and share treasures of information on quasi all topics concerning the Teide, Tenerife and the surrounding islands (living here since 1999), they are motivational when the mountain gets hard, but not pushy. They are humorous and helpful. In short: don’t hesitate and book with them.

Fantastic experience with awesome instructors. You will see beautiful views of all South Tenerife and have the time of your life! Just 1 little thing is that 80 euros for 2 person photos and video is a little too much. You dont have to buy it they are not forcing you but we wanted it so its your choice. I cant recommend this activity enough!

Great experience of pilot whale watching and snorkeling. Plenty to see. Food and drinks included. Staff very friendly and made the trip even more worthwhile. Pick up and drop off included. Used the sail when we had good wind so a lot of fun in one experience.

We had a great time, we saw many pilot whales that accompanied us on our journey, we snorkelled and saw many fish, thanks to Salvador and Belen for everything, the 5 of us as a family and another couple were a great luxury

We were very lucky to see whales and dolphins! Amazing experience.
