Upon arrival in Tenerife South airport, you will be picked up and taken to the hotel.
You have the option of a new rider week, volcano week or the challenge week. The itinerary below explains what you can expect on each.
From Los Cristianos, you will ride up to La Centinela with just a gradual climb. Then it’s down to Granadilla, Vilaflor and eventually back to Los Cristianos.
This day of the cycling holidays in Tenerife is a challenging day. After a ride through Guia de Isora you will climb one of the most famous Tenerife roads, through banana plantations to the Teide crater. The views from the climb are awesome. Stop at the Mirador de la Narices del Teide for a breathtaking view of the volcano, or stop at the Mirado de los Poleos for sensational views across the Atlantic and La Gomera in the distance.
From Los Cristianos, you will start an amazing ride to Abades, a beautiful coastal town, filled with small white bungalows and family run restaurants, serving delicious local food and out to Bodega Tempus to sample a local Canarian lunch and wine tasting.
Today’s ascent of Teide is from the south west. You’ll ride up to Vilaflor, the highest town in Spain, before continuing your ride through pine tree forests. The treeline will clear as you get higher and you’ll be rewarded with stunning views over the Atlantic on your winding road to the summit.
You will ride up the west coast to Chio in the north west, to descend the iconic switchbacks that take you to the beautiful village of Masca. From here, you’ll descend back to sea level before continuing to the coastal town of Garachico. You will tackle the fairly unknown and quiet climb of Las Cruces before we celebrate with a Paella Party.
Today we will take you to where most riders don’t go. Join us as we head to the very north eastern tip of the island to Bailadero and the Unesco Biosphere Reserve of the Anaga Natural Park. Anaga is another world of sharp peaks and deep ravines carpeted in thick laurel trees and typical Canarian villages. Your ride will finish in Santa Cruz before we transfer you back south.
Today you will be taken back to the airport for your return flight home from your cycling holiday in Tenerife.
The island of eternal Spring is a Mecca for cycling enthusiasts looking to soak up some winter sunshine. The volcanic island offers spectacular views across the glistening Atlantic, especially from Mount Teide. Enjoy rides along the undulating coasts, follow the famous Masca Valley and relax in the traditional towns each evening.
