Turismo rural: Holiday on the Finca

Green forests and cliffs where the surf breaks - in the north of Tenerife nature lovers and hikers can experience the wonderful landscape and small villages. Far away from the hustle and bustle, this is the most beautiful place to live in Fincas: the former farmhouses in the rural areas have mostly been extensively restored, but despite modern amenities such as pool, television and WLAN have retained their charm. This rural tourism, the "Turismo rural" is perfect for everyone who wants to spend an individual and quiet holiday in Tenerife.

Apartments where Canarian life pulsates

The capital Santa Cruz in the northeast of the island invites to extensive city and shopping strolls. Here you can spend your holidays in modern holiday apartments with a metropolitan atmosphere. The bathing pleasure is also nearby: The city beach "Playa de las Teresitas" in the suburb San Andrés is considered as the most beautiful beach of the island. Further north, the holiday resort of Puerto de la Cruz will delight holidaymakers with its idyllic squares full of flowers and plants, historic buildings and cosy bars. From here you can make wonderful excursions to the Orotava valley, the Teno mountains or to sandy beaches and rocky natural swimming pools.

Holidays in the north of Tenerife

Location and orientation

Tenerife is the largest of the Canary Islands and lies at the height of the Central Sahara. About twelve million years ago, the Spanish island was formed by volcanic activity. The north is characterised by an impressive crater landscape, deep gorges, fascinating cliffs and fine sandy beaches. Here Tenerife is green and fertile. The gentle Orotava valley or the wild Anaga mountains - on numerous hiking trails you can marvel at lush vegetation. There are primeval forests with ferns and deciduous trees, bright green pines, light pine and dense laurel forests, bizarre cactus landscapes and the unique dragon trees. In the subtropical climate even mangos, bananas and prickly pears grow. The centre of the island is dominated by Pico del Teide, the highest mountain in Spain at 3,718 metres. In winter the Teide is often covered with snow. The spectacular volcanic caldera, the Caldera de las Cañadas, can be easily explored by car. You can even reach an altitude of 3,500 metres by cable car. The summit can only be reached on foot, and only with special permission from the National Park Administration.

Things to know

Climate and travel time

The "island of eternal spring" is a worthwhile destination all year round. Thanks to the trade winds, the climate is mild, the thermometer often shows around 20 degrees even in winter. While the east and south sides of the island are more sunny, drier and barren, dense clouds can form over the northern part. The mountains act as a weather barrier and have turned the north into this green, wooded and flowery landscape.

Nature conservation is a top priority

Mild, even climate, varied landscapes and a diverse vegetation - Tenerife was considered with the best conditions. Today almost half of the island is protected. In 2007, the Teide National Park was declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO. In the south of the island, near El Médano, there is Tenerife's largest wind farm with a nature trail around alternative energy sources. There is also the first settlement with passive zero-energy houses, which you as a holidaymaker can even rent as holiday homes.

Former influencer: More than 200 years ago Alexander von Humboldt reported enthusiastically about the beauty and diversity of Tenerife. Thereupon a group of botanists and interested travellers flocked to the island to admire the plants and landscapes.

Top 5 travel tips

1. Hiking in the Anaga Mountains

In the north-east of Tenerife you hike in this wildly rugged and densely wooded mountain range on scenic paths to seemingly deserted mountain villages and climb breathtaking vantage points.

2. The beaches of the North Cape

On the north coast, fine sandy beaches with surf delight all water sports enthusiasts. You can swim in bays, play with the waves on wild beaches and even surf. Many beaches are unspoilt, but offer small kiosks with food and lend deck chairs and parasols. The beaches are much less crowded than in the turbulent south.

3. A trip through the Cañadas to the Teide

Tenerife is considered an island of contrasts. Those who travel from the green island north into the barren moon landscape around the Teide will experience two worlds within a few hours. Around the Teide lies the Caldera de las Cañadas: a gigantic volcanic crater, which captivates with a bizarre landscape, lava balls and coloured rock formations. Numerous vantage points and hiking trails invite you to linger and marvel.

4. The mountain village of Masca

The mountain village in the Teno mountains in the northwest of Tenerife is a listed building and surprises its visitors with an incredible location. The districts are separated by gorges, the view goes up to the sea. The village is surrounded by steep terraces, flowering trees and palm trees. The spectacular hike through the gorge of Masca is very popular. An exhausting but rewarding pleasure.

5th city trip to Santa Cruz and La Laguna

Immerse yourself in the typical life of the "Tiñerfenos" and stroll through the capital Santa Cruz. You can enjoy a "Café con leche" (coffee with milk) or a typical "Barraquito" (small coffee with liqueur) in one of the pretty street cafés. Those interested in culture will be thrilled by the town of La Laguna, which is located just a little further north. La Laguna was the spiritual and political centre of the Canary Islands for centuries. Many buildings from the 17th and 18th centuries are still completely preserved in the old town, which is well worth seeing. In addition to stately homes, there are a number of impressive churches and cathedrals.
