Don’t wait for the Spring to come find you – fly for warmth and sun to the Islands of eternal Spring!

Complexity

An adventure in the Canary Islands does not require any additional preparation from your side. A significant part of the trip involves hiking along the developed routes in the mountainous part of the islands. Be prepared for simple, but rather long hikes of 5-8 hours a day, sometimes rising up to 1000m of altitude per day. But remember, every ascent is followed by a merry descent.

Comfort

During these two weeks we’ll be accommodated in cozy 3 * hotels; mountain shelters with dormitories with shared kitchen and facilities and hostels in the islands’ capital cities. The weather on the islands of the Canary archipelago could be described as eternal summer, but do not forget that in order to climb Mount Teide you will need warm clothes. We also advise you to bring a raincoat – rainfall here is rare and short, but very intense.
