Our Adventures

We think it would be a great shame for you to come to an island as beautiful as Tenerife and not experience some of the breath taking places it has to offer!

That's why our Tenerife retreats include free guided island excursions, including exploring the stunning Masca Valley, hiking to a secret hippy beach to have a go at surfing, hiking around the volcano Mount Teide and watching the sunset high above the clouds in the stunning Teide national park!

The Masca Valley in Tenerife

Explore The Masca Valley

I have travelled to many places in the world and the Masca Valley still has to be one of the most amazing views that I have ever seen in my life! On this short afternoon hike we take you down the valley from the Mirador overlooking the gorge where you will see beautiful views down into the village and out to the glimmering azure sea, we hike down through the tropical undergrowth and stop in the small quaint Canarian village at the heart of Masca, where we stop for a picnic lunch and have time to browse the shops and cafe's before ascending back to the mirador.

There is an infamous beach on Tenerife known by the locals as 'La Playa de Los Hippies'. This hidden white sand beach is only accessible by a 45 minute walk over the cliffs and its secluded nature makes it a popular spot with local nudists.

The beach acquired its name as it has been home to a community of camping wayward travellers since the 1960s who live in the caves overlooking the beach. 

We hike to the beach where we have a couple of hours to relax in the sun and cool down in the ocean. We advise you take some cash with you if you would like to buy something as the hippies living at the beach often sell drinks, handmade jewellery and cookies of the magic variety to make an earnest living.

Hike around the Volcano
Mount Teide

You couldn't come to a volcanic island and not see the volcano up close! We take you high up into the Teide national park passing through pine covered forests to Canada Blanca which sits in the original crater of the volcano which formed the island. Here the volcano rises before you in all its majesty. 

 

From here we set off on a circular hike which goes around Roques del Garcia. These strange rock formations are the remains of the lava conduit of the original super volcano which formed the island!

After the hike we go to the visitors centre where you can enjoy a coffee in front of the dramatic backdrop or check out the free museum to learn some interesting history about the volcano and the native Guanche people.

We end the week with a very special sunset, high up in the Teide national park. We hike up to the top of a ridge where we look down on a sprawling valley of pine trees, the island of La Gomera and the glittering ocean in the distance.

On a lucky day we are so high up that we look down upon a fluffy white sea of clouds, which disperse the colours of the sun in to a thousand beautiful hues of orange and purple when the sun sinks slowly below their surface.

We sit for a guided meditation and soak in the beautiful nature before us, followed by a closing circle where we share something about our experience. This is followed by a champagne picnic, live music and singing. It's the perfect way to end a perfect week!

Free Afternoon for
Relaxing or Exploring

We want to make sure that you also have some time to relax or do your own thing on the retreat. That's why we have a free afternoon on the 4th day where you can relax and book a treatment, take part in our free Happiness and Health Workshop or go and explore the island on your own!

Some activities that we can recommend doing on the island if you have the time include surf lessons, the waterpark, horse riding, paragliding, windsurfing or whale watching. If you would like some more information about any of these activities on the retreat just ask a member of staff.
