WALKING IN TENERIFE
Departing: 8 March 2020

8 Days from: £859pp
There are a host of reasons for visiting Tenerife – the largest of the Canaries, which the classicists rightly called ‘the Fortunate Isles’.
Fortunate, too, in having such a wonderful winter and spring climate for visitors from the freezing north! An island of contrasts – miles of sun-drenched coastline surround Spain’s highest mountain, Mount Teide. Often snow-capped, the desolate volcanic slopes of Teide are a world away from the tropical vegetation of the banana plantations and the botanic gardens below.
You stay in the north part of the island where the traditional villages, the UNESCO-listed university town of La Laguna and historic Puerto de la Cruz are totally different in feel to the commercialised resorts of the south.
