What's Included

Your Tenerife self guided triathlon holiday

We can tailor make this trip for you
Day 1Arrival into Tenerife

Remember this trip can be tailor made and is completely flexible. This itinerary is simply a suggestion and you can enjoy as many days on the island as you like.

The best airport to arrive into is Tenerife South. From there we will pick you up and take you to your hotel. We have a choice of 3, 4 and 5* hotels located in Costa Adeje, to allow you to take advantage of the incredible Tenerife Top Training (T3) facility based in Adeje. T3 is a high-performance sports centre. Their elite level training facilities provide a perfect base not only for your swimming, cycling and running but also for your core strength and stretching.

The facility hosts a number of top level athletes and sports teams providing Olympic and 25m swimming pools, high tech swimming flume, athletics track and fully equipped indoor and outdoor gyms.

Day 2Acclimatisation

Start the day off with a swim set in the Olympic sized pool before enjoying an acclimatisation ride. Tenerife is dominated by Mount Teide and so much of the island involves a lot of climbing. Get your legs by heading up the west coast towards Los Gigantes Valley where you can hug the coast through Adeje and head north before climbing from Tamaimo to Arguayo. The climb is relatively steady and you will pass up over lava fields before topping out and enjoying a lovely descent back towards the coast. A climb back up to the quieter roads of Tenerife gives you fantastic views over La Gomera before you descend back to your hotel. We love this ride as it’s a short 50km ride with 1,200m of climbing and a great introduction to the island.

If your legs are still feeling fresh, make this a brick session by adding a run in the afternoon along the coast or on the athletics track.

Day 3Teide West

If you’re in Tenerife, it’s likely you’re there for Teide. The looming peak of the volcano can be seen from nearly every point on the island and it dominates Tenerife’s landscape. Today, we recommend the beautiful climb through Vilaflor. You will head out from your hotel towards Granadilla before turning up towards the volcano. You will ride through Vilaflor, a sleepy and typically Canarian village on the slopes of the volcano. The climb from Vilaflor is relentless and a great test of your abilities. As you head into the national park, the slopes become darker with black volcanic rock, with vibrant green trees springing up from the hillsides. You have a choice of skirting the crater and descending or making your way all the way to the cable car station at Teide. The ride home is an exhilarating descent zipping all the way down on almost perfect tarmac. The ride can be anything from 75km to 100km with between 1,400m – 2,000m of climbing depending on your preference.

Day 4Brick Session

Today we recommend a brick session and to take advantage of everything the island has to offer. Start off with an early morning swim. Choose from an open water swim or hone your technique in the semi or full-sized Olympic pools. Then jump on the bike and head towards Teide or Masca. If you choose Teide, we recommend heading up through the banana plantations just below Guia de Isora before the mammoth climb up to the crater. If you prefer an alternative route, the climb to Masca Valley is sensational. You can follow the road from Guia de Isora towards Masca or approach Santiago del Teide via the lower roads.

The afternoon can be spent with a run on the undulating coastal roads or on the athletic track in the training facility.

Day 5Departure (or extend your trip)

The trip is fully flexible so you can extend your stay beyond today. If you choose to depart today, spend the morning stretching or getting some important core strength work completed. We will then give you a transfer back to the airport.
