Playa de Las Américas

If you are staying with us, the most recommended route leaves from the very door of our hotel. Who doesn’t like to ride a bike a few meters from the beach? This route will take you, through the Avenida Rafael Puig Lluvina, on a coastal tour of the best beaches in the south of Tenerife. You just have to let yourself go, stop when you want to have a drink or look at the landscape, and keep going. After the ride don’t worry about anything, we’ll take care of your bike.

Playa de Las Américas – Adeje – Playa de Las Américas

The more experienced cyclists like this route a little more complicated. It starts from Adeje and goes through Torviscas beach, San Eugenio, Las Américas, Los Cristianos, Siam Mall, Siam Park, Torviscas Alto, Miraverde, Fañabe and finally returning to El Galeón, in Adeje. This is a circular route of about 30km and almost three hours of travel on slopes, curves and inclines. All this through a diverse route, from beautiful and paradisiacal beaches, to ravines and mountains. Do you dare?

Pinares de Vilaflor – Mountain Bike

From a terrain dominated by asphalt we move to the mountain to enjoy a mountain route through one of the most beautiful bike routes in this part of the island. The route covers a large part of the municipality of Vilaflor, one of the highest villages in Spain. You will be inside the Corona Forestal Natural Park and in one of its most emblematic and beautiful pine forests. Just enjoy!


From the south of the island we moved to the north. A privileged area for lovers of this sport and a cycling enclave par excellence. It boasts several of the most entertaining bike rides on Tenerife. But before going up to the heights, a walk through a perfect city for it, Los Realejos.

Rambla de Castro

Leaving the Rambla de Castro you can enjoy a linear walk along the north coast, on a fairly simple route of about 10km and 2 hours. It is an area of protected landscape characterized by its natural beauty in which you will only have to enjoy.

La Caldera – Mountain Bike

If you are more demanding, this route will be a real challenge. This circular route of about 83km begins with a climb towards Pino Alto, until it connects with the Las Palomas reserve. We will climb a slope from La Vica to La Matanza de Acentejo; then we will go through looping paths to Risco Negro and Las Lagunetas, to join later the road to El Teide. On the way back we will pass through the forest of La Esperanza, Tacoronte, La Victoria and El Sauzal. Going through La Orotava and after a road of almost 8 hours, we will finally arrive at the spectacular protected area of Las Palomas.

If you’re thinking of booking a well-deserved holiday in Tenerife, you might want to add some adrenaline to the equation by booking active tourism activities.

Many people visit the Canary Islands and after 3 days of relaxing on the beautiful beaches of the Islands or in our vibrant swimming pool, they need to look for new experiences but that allows them to know in depth the place they have chosen for their holidays.

Tenerife is an island of contrasts, its volcanic sandy beaches are just a clue to the grandeur of its mountains, ravines, sea beds … Today we tell you some active tourism activities that you might want to add to your ‘things to do in Tenerife’ list.

What is Active Tourism?

Active tourism is that way of travelling that involves developing certain activities in natural environments. Most of the time, these are excursions with a certain amount of physical exertion but with a controlled level of risk. Without a doubt, this is a different way of getting to know Tenerife and it makes the visitor get involved with the environment and enjoy an adventure holiday.


Sports tourism

First of all, we propose you some mountain tourism activities that perhaps fit well with what you are looking for.

Trekking: One of the most classic aspects of mountain sports tourism is to enjoy the countless trails that Tenerife has for trekking. Discover the greenest and wildest part of the island by walking along the summits of Anaga to the coast in Las Vueltas de Taganana; enjoy the path that leads to the beach of Antequera, you will pass from a thick laurisilva forest to an almost deserted beach where you can enjoy the sun and sea; finally, another example that you should know is the path of Alto de Guajara, with some amazing views of Teide and where, on clear days, you can also see other Canary Islands.

Canyoning: Another way to do mountain tourism but that will trigger your adrenaline is to practice canyoning. Jumps into the water, rappel down, connect with the wild and adventurous side of nature… The ravine of Arcos, Los Carrizales or La Sabina are some of the best known but there are many places to practice this sport in Tenerife.

Active tourism in the water

It is possible that if you have arrived here, we have already met you to practice active tourism during your holidays in Tenerife. But you may still be reluctant to move from the beach to the mountains, don’t be afraid! You can practice sports tourism without getting out of the water, how?

Kayaking in Los Gigantes: How about spending the day kayaking on the cliff of Los Gigantes? It’s certainly a unique experience with incredible views of Tenerife’s coastline as you alternate it with bathing in the Atlantic Ocean.

Diving: We have talked about the great characteristics of the coast and mountains of Tenerife, but you can also practice sports tourism underwater. Reach the depths of our Island to know more than 600 marine species that inhabit the south coast of Tenerife.

Don’t doubt it! Get into the rewarding experience of active tourism activities during your holiday in Tenerife – you’ll get to know our island like never before! In addition, the whole Vanilla Garden team is at your disposal to help you organise as many activities as you want and, if you haven’t found it among our recommendations, please contact us!
