Unforgettable moment that you should not miss!

We offer a variety of interesting tours for every interested activist! We would also be pleased to provide you with an individual program of activities or hikes, and promise that everyone will get their money’s worth! Otherwise, of course, we are pleased to take you on one of our weekly and regular hiking tours.

Wandern auf Teneriffa

All hikes are day trips, linked to the transfer to the starting point of the tour and back again. On the way we organize a picnic at particularly beautiful points. The hikes are accompanied by a guide in your own language, who will tell you a lot about the country and the people, flora and fauna and Tenerife in general. We work exclusively with hiking guides who have been living in Tenerife for years.
