3 Fun Outdoor Ideas When Visiting Tenerife
The most popular water sport activity in Tenerife is surfing. You can experience this at the various surf spots around the island. All it takes is a few lessons from one of the surf schools, geared to the beginner or experienced surfer, and you’re good to go and sample the waves. If you’re one for speed, then you can also try jet skiing. Jet ski hire is available at many beach resorts.
For a more observational and calming experience of the waters, scuba diving is available for both the novice and certified divers – you will encounter marine species such as sting rays, turtles and schools of tropical fish.
Mountain biking tours are ideal for adventure lovers that want to cram Cross Country tours in their holidays or just try out the shorter rides. You can choose to go it alone or join a group tour to different destinations – a mountain bike and equipment is included in the tour.
Forestal Park, in Santa Cruz de Tenerife, is an adventure park which offers 90 games on 11 zip-lines. It is suited for families, or for the more advanced thrill seekers, that want to cruise from one treetop to the next. If you’re one for flying, and really aren’t scared of heights, you can go paragliding at an 800 metre altitude and get a birds-eye view of Tenerife.
Siam Park is a Siamese themed, aquatic adventure park located in Costa Adeje that children will especially love. Or, why not try the Submarine Safari excursion – this really is for everyone, young and old. You will experience the thrill of boarding a real submarine and exploring the world beneath the waves of the Atlantic Ocean. These are just a few activities but you can choose to build your own multisport pack that specifically caters to your interests.
