Teno Country Park is located in the north-west of the island and is one of Tenerife's most beautiful nature areas and has kept much of its ecological, scenic and cultural wealth, largely thanks to its isolated position.

Today take time out and take advantage of the hotel facilities and relax by the pool or perhaps visit the north of the Island and its wines . Wine has always been part of the culture of the Canaries and, of course, of Tenerife. The first grapevines were planted around 1497. Tenerife's wines have been exported all over Europe since then. Even Shakespeare or Sir Walter Scott knew and loved them, including references to the Island's wines in their work. So whether it is red, white, rosé or malvasia indulge yourself a glass or two together with one of the popular local cheeses.

For todays free day perhaps take an excursion to San Cristóbal de La Laguna, widely referred as La Laguna, the first capital of Tenerife. This lively city houses the first university in the Canary Islands so it is a meeting place where modern minds and young students gather. Walking in La Laguna’s beautiful streets is like travelling back intime. Churches, mansions, and historic buildings make this old city a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The excursion also includes a visit to Santa Cruz, the Island's capital. It is a cosmopolitan and fascinating city where you can give yourself a dose of retail therapy on its lively streets, or visit some of its museums and discover the history of the island and the city. Alternatively, just walk around and enjoy the parks and indulge yourself with a drink and some local tapas.

Tenerife Walking

From the dry and arid south to the humid north and its luxuriant vegetation, Tenerife is as diverse in
terms of climate and topography hence often called a mini continent.
Located in the middle of the island, El Teide is the highest mountain in Spain. with its subalpine and
alpine region, Pico del Teide (3718m at the highest point) is the symbol of the island and can be seen
from any place in Tenerife. With the Laurel forests and wild coast in the Anaga Massif, the gorges and ravines in the Teno Massif and of course, Las Cañadas del Teide National Park, Tenerife is a paradise and perfect location for a Solos hiking week.

It is your responsibility to ensure that you are fit and well enough to take part in your chosen activity holiday. If you are unsure as to whether the walks are within your capabilities, please contact the office to discuss this matter, thus making sure you appreciate the terrain that you will be walking. 

You could be walking across uneven ground in some areas and extreme care must be taken, especially if wet. If used to using a pole/stick, it is advisable to bring it. Please appreciate the route and content of the holiday may change at the time and at the discretion of the guide/organiser, should conditions require. Solo’s Holidays Ltd cannot be held responsible for personal injury, accident or damage to property whilst on these walks other than incidents arising out of the company’s negligence. The guide has the right to refuse to guide a walk with anyone not properly attired. 

What to Wear 

It is of paramount importance that you have the correct footwear. It is essential to wear walking boots that are comfortable and preferably lightweight, with some ankle support and a good grip. If you already have a pair of boots that you are happy walking in (including during hot/wet weather and on hard ground), then bring these along. Experience has shown that wearing 2 pairs of woollen socks adds to comfort. 

The weather, even in summer, is unpredictable – particularly in mountainous areas. We would therefore recommend you travel with clothing suitable for all conditions, and suggest you use the following checklist as a guideline of what to take: 

Walking boots with good ankle support 

Waterproofs – jacket and trousers 

Walking poles – recommended as they provide good support for the knees, particularly on downhill sections of walks and when conditions are wet/slippery 

Lightweight trousers and shorts with pockets 

Walking socks – several pairs 

Lightweight fleece or jumper 

Hat & gloves 

Daysack/rucksack for walking 

Umbrella – it can be used also for protection from the sun as well as rain 

Lightweight drinking bottle to carry water whilst walking 

Small first aid kit – plasters, insect repellent, etc 

Good, high factor sunscreen, sunhat and sunglasses – the sun’s strength is often multiplied in mountainous areas. 

Gratuities 

We suggest a Group Collection to cover transfer drivers, and hotel staff of €20.00 per person. Your Tour Leader will collect this on your behalf and distribute it accordingly, thus relieving you of the burden of who, when and how much to tip. The tipping of housekeeping will be left to your individual discretion (a small amount left in your room on departure should cover this and would be much appreciated). As is customary, ‘the hat’ will be passed around for the driver and guide on all optional excursions. For any meals that are not included in your itinerary, or taxi fares, your Tour Leader can advise of an appropriate % to add on.
