WE LOVEBreathtaking Gravel Riding
If you've been to Tenerife before, chances are you've never experienced cycling like this. Ride gravel tracks in the shadow of Teide, on routes that are almost completely empty. The gravel riding is some of the best in Spain with a carefully designed route that will take you around the island.
WE LOVEExplore The whole Island
This tour circumnavigates the Teide crater so you can explore most of the island. Get away from the usual tourist places and ride the northern coast as well as the less explored eastern side of Teide.

What's Included

Our suggested Tenerife gravel tour

We can tailor make this trip for you
Day 1Arrival

Upon arrival in Tenerife South airport, you will be picked up and taken to the hotel, the 5* Barcelo in the south of the island. Check in, relax and enjoy your surroundings.

Day 2The dry south

Today your gravel route will take you to Palmar. You will ride through the dry south of the island over rocky terrain, in the south east of Tenerife. Mount Teide will loom over you for the entire ride and after around 20km, you will get a great view over La Gomera as you climb to the highest point of the ride. From there, it’s a descent and then a mostly flat and undulating ride.

Total distance67kmTotal climb1200m
Day 3Chio to Garachico

Today you will ride the gravel routes of the north eastern coast. The ride starts in Chio, just north of Guia de Isora and the western ascent of Teide and heads towards the Masca Valley. When you reach Santiago del Teide, instead of descending into the valley, you will descend to Garachico on the northern coast.

Total distance67kmTotal climb1800m
Day 4The northern coast

Today is one of the most beautiful days on the ride as you head through the northern coast. Your ride will take you through pine forests as you climb steadily for the first section of your ride, before plateauing and then descending after another burst uphill. Today is the longest day of the ride as you make your way to La Orotava.

Total distance90kmTotal climb2200m
Day 5Teide National Park

Today will see you ride gravel routes into Teide Nationa Park and the crater. Most cyclist’s who come to Tenerife never see this part of the island and it’s pretty much undiscovered amongst tourists.

Day 6The Century Ride

Today is the longest day you will have in the saddle as you make your way out of the northern part of the crater, all the way to the southern coast. Your ride takes in over 100km with over 2,700m of climbing which is not to be underestimated on gravel roads. It’s a spectacular day of riding through breathtaking scenery.

Total distance105kmTotal climb2700m

What to ExpectFrom enchanted rainforests to black lava fields

Tenerife is where so many cycling enthusiasts take on Teide but this trip provides an experience of parts of the island others just don’t get to see. Gravel routes will take you right to the north of the island before you head into the north eastern part of Teide National Park.
