Known as an Island of Contrasts, Tenerife boasts the most fascinating natural heritage, generated following a succession of volcanic eruptions.

It makes the ideal Pit Stop for Yachts crossing the Atlantic towards the winter cruising grounds of the Caribbean following a long hard stint of Mediterranean summertime cruising and chartering

Formed over 10 million years ago in the north of the Atlantic Ocean, Tenerife features prehistoric rainforests, Spain’s highest peak, rocky plains of lava,
dramatic cliffs, volcanic sand beaches, deep ravines, underground caves… an endless list of natural wonders surrounded by a rich marine environment for yacht crews to enjoy.

The island’s stunning scenery, which has hosted the filming of blockbuster movies of the likes of “Clash of the Titans”, has been hailed as “heavenly”.
Adrenalin junkies can enjoy many exciting activities including hiking, diving, mountain biking and paragliding.

Softer adventure is also possible in Tenerife, with a vast network of footpaths and enjoyable outings such as caving.

Year round spring temperatures averaging 22 degrees combined with a low level of rainfall provide an ideal climate for outdoor ventures. Whether on land, at sea or in the skies, Tenerife provides outdoor adventure for crew whose Captain understands the need for quality R&R time.
One of Tenerife’s most rewarding experiences is the Mount Teide climb. Perched in the centre of the island stands the majestic 3,718 metre-high peak, surrounded by a rugged lunar landscape which combined, form a National Park declared UNESCO World Heritage Site in 2007. The ascent or descent can be shortened with the help of a cable car, which reaches 3,555 metres above sea level.

The remaining metres to the summit are limited to fit hikers and a permit is required to ensure its conservation.
