Destination Profile

It's easy to overlook but impossible to overstate the range of experiences offered by this fabulous holiday destination. Countless holidaymakers every year travel here and return without realizing what they've missed. The key is to be adventurous and explore. Don't restrict yourself to the unquestionably beautiful beaches and undeniably lively resort towns of the southern coast; travel inland to discover the commanding beauty of the landscape of the interior. Even here, the variation is vast, from forested ravines to volcanic moonscapes, and the majestic peak of Mount Tiede in the centre of the Parque Nacional del Tiede. It is the most visited national park in Spain with a total of nearly 3 million visitors annually; walkers, cyclists and fitness enthusiasts of every passion flock to explore this UNESCO World Heritage Site, but with an area of 18,990 hectares, the sense of solitude and tranquility remain entirely unruffled.

Anywhere on the island is easily within range for day trips away from the beach. The north of the island is lush with the abundance of flora and fauna, giving rise to a distinctly tropical climate and stunning scenery. Discovering the delights of capital Santa Cruz at the north-eastern tip, is a must for anyone whose holiday is incomplete without finding out more about the cultural identity of this dream destination. Filled with places to visit and things to see, the city buzzes with life and zings with a lively latin air, particularly during the main festival season in February and March, when it gives Rio a real run for its money. Animal lovers and families will find Loro Parque a great way to spend a day, with the worlds largest collection of parrots and a variety of other animals to see in realistic replicas of their natural habitat. Ancient towns and villages such as La Orotava and Masca give a glimpse of Tenerife's past, and offer outstanding views on the way. For many though, its the sunshine, sands and sheer youthfulness of Tenerife's renowned resorts such as Playa de las Americas and the slightly quieter Los Cristianos in the south of the island which are the pull, and these certainly live up to their reputation for fun. At Olympic Holidays we've a fabulous range of places to stay Playa de las Americas, and places to stay in Los Christianos, and three other enchanting resorts as well: for families who perhaps need things a bit quieter occasionally, but still like to be near the centre of the action, Costa Adeje is a great choice with its up-market accommodation and smart restaurants. Callao Salvaje, within the same district is similarly perfect for families particularly with very young children, being a small and quiet resort with some bars and restaurants of its own and a sand and shingle beach. Attractive Puerto de la Cruz is our resort in the north of the island. At the foot of the stunning La Orotava Valley, it's a great choice for absolutely anyone, with stunning scenery, great food, proximity to the capital, and the volcanic black-sand beaches the Canaries are known for. Take your pick and prepare for a voyage of discovery.
