Whether you’re a nature lover, an adrenaline junkie or just looking for something to do with the kids, Tenerife is guaranteed to offer all kinds of fun experiences. Here are our top picks for things to do on this wonderful island.
Wildlife and Nature:
Let yourself be astounded by the wonders of nature at Loro Parque – definitely a highlight of your Tenerife trip! Spanish for “Parrot Park”, this place houses the world’s most important parrot collection, along with all kinds of amazing wildlife habitats and spectacular live shows.
Las Aguilas Jungle Park is also home to all manner of fabulous animals, going about their business amongst a natural habitat of 75,000m² of jungle! Come face-to-face with orang-utans, lions, jaguars, chimpanzees, hippopotamus, crocodiles and much more.
Waterslides and Thrill Rides:
Get wet and wild at Europe’s biggest aquatic theme park – the Thai-inspired Siam Park! With pulse-racing water rides and the latest in theme park technology, there’s never a dull moment whether you’re 6 or 60, and even non-swimmers will have plenty to keep themselves entertained.
Tenerife also boasts the only water park and dolphinarium in the Canary Islands. Aqualand Costa Adeje has all manner of adrenaline-fuelled water rides as well as chill-out areas and lots of fun for little ones. Spectacular dolphin shows also take place every day in the dolphinarium.
Explore and See the Sights:
Discover the real Tenerife on the Vuelta a la Isla Tour, which takes you to areas less-travelled by tourists and explores the history, heritage and people of the island.
You can also visit the highest village in Tenerife and travel up Spain’s highest peak at Mount Teide, where you can gaze out over the island from a height of 3717m!
Fun for All the Family:
Join the King and Queen for an evening of jousting and feasting at a Medieval Night at San Miguel Castle! Kids will be in their element with lots of noise, cheering and audience participation.
Take a Day Trip:
See more of the beautiful Canaries on a trip to La Gomera – the second-smallest of the Islands. But don’t let its diminutive size fool you – this place is packed full of things to see and do!
If you’re planning to visit any attractions or tours in Tenerife, it’s always advisable to book your tickets in advance, as the last thing you want is to turn up and realise the place you really want to visit is full up or sold out!
Booking in advance will secure the date that you want to visit, can avoid waiting in queues (and wasting your valuable holiday time!) and could even save you money compared with buying on the day.
