Tenerife is a party island for pleasure seeking tourists in search of late nights and idle days. But the island does have a personality only familiar with people who are after a bit more from their holiday than lazy pool days and excessive party nights…the island is starting to draw the attention of thrill seekers, adrenaline junkies, fitness freaks and people who just want to do something more meaningful with their precious away time.

The attraction of Tenerife for active getaways is that it is warm year-round and, wherever you are, it’s not far from the mountains or the sea, the rugged terrain make it an ideal training base for many athletes and active holiday makers alike.

Mount Teide is the real attraction for those wishing to test their abilities at a whopping 3,718 metres this volcano is Spain’s highest peak making it perfect for high altitude training, which is best served over 2,400 metres.
