Why You Need to Try Paragliding with Airsports Tenerife

If you’ve never been paragliding before (or even if you have), then you definitely need to try with Airsports Tenerife for an absolutely epic experience! Tenerife is almost certainly one of the best places in the world to enjoy this amazing sport, with a wonderful climate all year round offering excellent conditions and breathtaking views.

Don’t worry if you are a complete beginner though as you will not be alone! These are tandem flights with an extremely experienced, professional and safety conscious team. There is an international mix to the team, representing the best from the UK, Sweden, France and Italy with a combined flying experience on Tenerife of almost 30 years!

Clearly with this much experience you are in extremely safe hands and as should obviously be the way, your safety is the number one priority for the team, followed closely by providing you with the best possible flight experience. There are a number of different competing companies on Tenerife, due to it being one of the best paragliding locations. Despite this, Airsports Tenerife certainly stands out due to their exceptional service and consideration for the safety and enjoyment of their clients.

Whereas other companies take a more rushed approach, sometimes taking off in less than desirable conditions, while aiming to maximise their profits, Airsports Tenerife owner Simon Fulford and his team on the other hand are not purely driven by profit and instead offer a more personal experience. They will only take you on a flight if the conditions are optimal for safety and the best views/wind speed etc. This is achieved by not trying to pack so many flights in per day.

Pre flight pic!Simon and his friendly team are also happy to have a drink and chat with clients at the wonderful beach bar next to where you land. Depending on the time of day, you may even be greeted with some live music and a gorgeous sunset if you’re lucky. It’s these more personal touches that really make the difference between a company being average or even good and one that is great like Airsports Tenerife.

So if you are visiting Tenerife or living here on the island and want to give paragliding a try, you should absolutely contact Simon and his team. Don’t hesitate, get in touch with them today!

Sea Kayaking and Dolphin Watching in Tenerife

Over Christmas I did something which will live in my memory forever; I went sea kayaking to watch dolphins! I have seen dolphins in the wild before on a boat trip in Gran Canaria, but sea kayaking with them is a totally different experience, and a thousand times better.

On a visit to Tenerife, many tourists will go on a boat trip to see dolphins in the wild. While these boat trips are good, there is something you can do which is even better, and gets you very close to the dolphins. This is sea kayaking with Tenerife in Kayak. They are based in Palm-Mar, not far from Los Cristianos and will come and pick you up from your hotel and drop you off again after the tour. The tour lasts for two hours, and the pickup service is free.

Everything is included, and the instructions from the guide make this easy even for novices like me.

Tenerife in Kayak is a very professional company, and will answer any questions you may have.

This has to be one of the best ways of seeing wild dolphins in their natural habitat, and getting so close to them because they want to come to you. You will not regret choosing sea kayaking as a way to watch them instead of being on a tourist boat chasing after them.

If there is only one thing that you do in Tenerife, this should be it!

Price: €35 per adult, €20 per child up to 11 years old

Opening Hours: Open every day. Book online at http://www.tenerifeinkayak.com/en/

Address: Av. Palm Mar Edif. La Arenita Local 4, Palm Mar, Tenerife

See How to Uncover Tenerife’s Unique Beauty With The Italian Chica

Living in the Canary Islands is one of the greatest blessings that a person could desire: fabulous weather all year long, breathtaking landscapes worthy of the best covers of National Geographic, a sunny and always welcoming people and the ability to easily travel between the 7 islands thanks to efficient internal flights.

• Lanzarote: my currently home. I'm so glad to live in such a beautiful island…but I'm also happy to live close to other gorgeous islands and being able to travel and visit them!

Each island has its own unique and distinguishing features, and exploring them is an amazing experience that enriches the soul. Thanks to the “Influencer program” of Tenerife Magazine I had the chance to discover for the first time the island of Tenerife and it was an incredible experience!
My stay was at Pearly Grey, an extraordinary resort in the south of the island with every comfort: gym, massage room, two restaurants, a huge pool, Bali beds with spectacular ocean view and much more! From this lovely place, it’s possible to appreciate the magnificent sunsets that nature gives each evening, with the sun disappearing behind the island of Gomera.
The rooms inside the hotel have a stylish and elegant decor, and all of them are equipped with all the kitchen utensils you may need, a private bathroom with a huge shower and my room also had two huge breath-taking terraces facing the ocean: it was such a dream!
To get around the island I used a nice car provided by Poul’s Auto car rental. To collect the keys I didn’t have to wait at any office at the airport: that’s because their cars are equipped with a security box attached to the window, where you just need to type a code to have access to your car.
On the second day of my stay, I went with the Tenerife Magazine team to Oasis Los Gigantes: a delightful recreational complex with pools, bars, and a restaurant overlooking the majestic Los Gigantes Bay. It’s a place I absolutely recommend to spend a relaxing day with friends or family!
During the following days, I explored the island from north to south, trying to discover and capture with my camera all the most characteristic places in Tenerife.
Masca’s walk was one of the most amazing experiences of my life: after taking a taxi to Masca, a village in the northwestern mountains of the island, I walked down to its valley between the imposing rocks, until I got to a wonderful black sandy beach, walking for about 3 hours surrounded by nature only.

• Masca walk: one of the most beautiful (and challenging!) experience of my life! Walking down for 3 hours from a mountain, through a breathtaking landscape and arriving in a paradise black sand beach…so a m a z i n g ! Being inside the mountains and feel their energy is such a powerful feeling! 😍 Now…I feel like I need to rest for so long… but it was worth it! 💪💪💪 . . .

Visiting the valley of Teide, the highest volcano in Spain, was another exciting experience: its scenery resembles the high mountain landscape, and it’s unbelievable how in just one-hour driving you can go from the heat of the palm-lined beaches to the cool mountain weather with its green pines.
The north of the island is very interesting also: from the capital of Santa Cruz, in the northeast, it’s possible to reach in a few minutes by car the beautiful beach of Las Teresitas but also the amazing protected area of the Park of Agana.

• Tenerife is an island full of surprises: from warm heavenly beaches, you can find mysterious forests where you can get lost and imagine to be in a fairy tale! 🌳🌈 . . .

In the most western part of the island, there is Punta Teno: a hidden and pristine gem, surrounded by the many contrasting shades of blue ocean.
In addition to exploring the island, I was lucky enough to try other types of experiences like the amazing relaxing massages by Judith of Origins Wellness, and a Yoga and Meditation session in a dream place with the talented Emily of Yoga Vibe Tenerife.

5 Videos That Will Inspire You to Visit Tenerife

Tenerife, the largest and most populated island of the Canary Islands, has an abundance of amazing things to do, see and experience. While Tenerife is quite wrongly perceived by some as a cheap getaway destination only suitable for sunbathing, budget meals and drinks, with little else to do, for anyone who has taken the time to explore the island a bit more, or even do a bit of research before their first visit, it is clear that Tenerife is so much more than sun, sand and sea.

Beautiful @ojmesa with @repostapp ・・・ Tu y yo hemos sido testigos. Una tarde mágica, en la que le hemos visto la cara a las emociones, entre ellas la felicidad. Le hemos visto la cara a las lágrimas de alegría y hemos sido partícipes de ello. ¿Cuántos momentos así habrás vivido? Impasible, protegiendo que nada dañe lo acontecido. Yo te digo que hoy he visto miradas còmplices, de apoyo incondicional, que sumadas dan como resultado un amor sincero. Lo he visto y lo he respirado. ¿Sabes lo mejor? Ser felíz por la felicidad de ellos.

Tenerife: Europe’s Own Hawaii

Do you know much about the Canary Islands? Most people I know write them off as resort filled islands for the British folk to spend their summers in; aka for vacations, not “travels”. Whatever that means. But what if I told you there is more to these beautiful islands than resorts and beaches?

I was only lucky enough to spend a week in Tenerife though, not getting the chance to explore any of the other islands. But spending a week in Tenerife was enough for me to realize that everything I had read about Tenerife, before going, was seriously lacking.

First of all, there are way more accommodations than just the resorts filled with tourists, in fact, if you leave Costa Adeje, you’ll see most of the island isn’t even like that part. I chose to stay in two different Airbnbs on the west and east coast. One being a beautiful restored Canarian home, owned and restored by Xavier, an architect who created beautiful properties on a banana plantation. And another being a cave, up a road off the highway, that was a completely new and unique experience. Both were like nothing I had ever stayed in before.

Beyond the accommodations, the activities available are things you can’t experience everywhere else. Sure, we did a couple of tours; as I don’t own my own boat, so you kinda have to pay to get on one if you want to see whales and dolphins (which we did, and I highly recommend Freebird One). But there are also other tours that you may write off as ‘too touristy’ but if you avoid them, you are missing out.

We were lucky in that we were able to experience an amazing tour to go stargazing at Mt. Teide with Travel Tenerife. I love sunsets and sunrises, so choosing between watching the sunset and stargazing and a morning sunrise up there, was hard, but I wanted to see those stars! I am sure glad I chose that, since it was probably the most epic sunset I have ever seen in my life.

I don’t know if I have ever seen a sunset from above the clouds like this; 1800m above sea level.

And then the sky full of stars; never in my life have I witnessed so many stars all at once. And I saw Jupiter, close enough to see red lines on it (but far enough for people with unrealistic expectations to be mad it wasn’t closer)! I will let the photos of our night speak for itself.

Another thing I enjoyed was seeing the observatory. It was done through a tour with Volcano Teide (because of course exploring it on your own doesn’t make sense) but it was really cool to be able to see what they do at an observatory. The two highlights for me were the view from up there and the ability to see the surface of the sun through a telescope. Not everyday you get to see what the astronomers see.

Aside from tours though, since that falls under the category of ‘too touristy’ for a lot of people. There are so many hikes and adventures you can have without the help of a tour. My favourite one, personally, was right up behind our first Airbnb and it was a nice stroll through the mountainside, with a walk down the other side through winding streets down to San Juan de Rambla.

If I had more time I would’ve explored more of these random paths but with one week and the need to relax a little, I didn’t get the chance. You can also drive yourself (rent a car; it’s cheap!) to Teide National Park and go on hikes through the area. There are tours for this, but it’s definitely something you can do on your own with so much space to explore.

And if you are a beach person, but still don’t want the touristy beaches that you can find written about in most of the posts I have seen out there on Tenerife, there are a plethora of beaches all over the islands. I suggest staying away from the south, and exploring any other part of the island and checking out the beaches there. That’s not to say the south is a complete waste. Los Gigantes is extremely beautiful, with great restaurants with amazing views.

And it may be crowded, but Masca is worth the crowds. There is a reason places like this attract so many people, with its breath-taking views; don’t forget to try the cactus lemonade!

All in all, Tenerife made me feel like I was on a European version of Hawaii. With similar things to do, similar sights to see and absolutely unreal natural beauty to explore. I highly recommend seeing it for yourself.

Many thanks to Sara Alexis for this brilliant guest post about her recent experience in Tenerife! As you can see from what Sara discovered while staying in Tenerife, there is so much more than what you might expect. Most of the guide books or typical tourist websites simply don’t do the island justice when promoting what to see and do. Here at Tenerife Magazine we aim to show the real Tenerife. If you want to spend the week at the beach then of course you can, but you can also explore volcanoes and forests, stay in unique accommodation, see whales and dolphins and marvel at the stars!

Sara is a teacher originally from Canada with a passion for travel and exploring the world. Her moto is “Never a grown up because I am always growing” which we think is great! To follow her adventures around the world make sure to see her website: http://www.thelifeofasolivagant.com/

Why You Will Love a Week in Tenerife

While I have both holidayed and lived in Lanzarote on a number of occasions since 2012, and visited Fuerteventura and La Graciosa, I had not yet reached Tenerife. This all changed with an amazing recent week long trip that I hope will inspire you to go!

 

For many who have not yet experienced Tenerife, but have merely glanced at a typical photo, it might appear that all that’s available is sun, sand and sea. In other words, the typical beach holiday spent sunbathing and sipping cheap beer by the pool. Don’t get me wrong, if that is what you are after then you can easily spend a week doing that.

I’m sure you are more discerning than that if you are reading this post though, and likely looking for a much more exciting time. Well the good news is that Tenerife is so much more than a tacky beach destination, even though you will find some incredible ones there.

If you have only previously been to some of the other Canary Islands such as Lanzarote or Fuerteventura, one of the first thing you will likely notice about the island, is how different it is to them in terms of size, landscape and overall pace of life.

Tenerife is very built up in parts with a huge array of shops, restaurants, bars, clubs and other amenities such as theatres and cinemas, owing to its population of over a million inhabitants. A week will speed by with absolutely no chance of feeling bored, as the island is full of life with so many amazing things to do from morning until night!

There is some amazing beauty on Tenerife and an incredible diversity of landscape. Around the coast there are of course stunningly beautiful sandy beaches with palm trees and blue skies. As well as the beaches there are also some epic views out to the Atlantic ocean, from the top of stunning cliffs where you can literally feel the energy of the ocean as the waves break against the rocks far down below.

View from The Edge at Pearly Grey Resort, Tenerife

In the same way that the island is full of human activity, it is also full of natural life with an array of palm trees, cacti, and other plants. As you travel inland though you will be struck by how green and verdant the island is.

During my week in Tenerife on an organised media trip I was lucky to be able to enjoy a number of different activities and enjoy a some awesome diverse experiences. These included:

Aqualand Costa Adeje:

Teide by Night Stargazing Experience:

Jungle Park, Tenerife:

Jungle Park, Tenerife

Whale watching with Freebird One:

A visit to Teide Observatory:

Tenerife

Incredible Trekking Teide Experience:

This is just a selection of some of the amazing experiences I had in Tenerife and this was just during one single week of staying on the island. If you are planning a holiday to Tenerife, as you can see there is more than enough to do to fill a week long stay there. In fact a week is not enough so you’ll either decide to extend your stay, or start planning your next trip back as soon as you arrive home!

It would be great to hear what you got up to on your holiday to Tenerife and what suggestions you have for what to do while there! Let us know in the comments section or via our social media channels. Also if you enjoyed this post please share it on social media and subscribe to our channels.

‘Sitting is the New Smoking’ Petrinic Fitness System Studio

 

‘Major problems for the modern age people are poor posture, mobility, flexibility and incorrect breathing.’

Just by looking down on our smartphones every day we are putting so much pressure on our necks and creating spine deformations, lower back pain, deformed posture and mobility issues.

12511067_216811901986313_1127231342_o

This week we participated in an opening of a new Petrinic Fitness System studio in San Eugenio. When we got an invitation, we thought it will be just another gym in the town, however it turned out to be much more than that.

Petrinic Fitness System isn’t just about your body, as you would normally expect by perceiving ‘fitness’. It’s about the connection of body, mind and spirit, and according to the studio’s owner and personal trainer Dalibor Petrinic, only by employing these three aspects, you will achieve results.

When you first enter the studio, you are completely amused, for its unconventional environment. What you would normally expect, is different machines and other ‘torturing equipment’, while here is just a set of gymnastic rings and a suspension trainer hanging down the ceiling, some resistance bands and a soft flooring -“tatami” which is widely used for martial arts training and anything that is done on the floor barefoot.

20151207_102126-1030x579
Petrinic Fitness System Studio

There is also a small kitchen for nutrition training and smoothie preparation. An unbelievably relaxing atmosphere, calmness in the air and a small crowd of people gathering for the opening.

‘Be careful, don’t step on the soft bit’ says Dalibor when we walk in. This is the area only for exercising barefoot, so we avoid it carefully. According to the owner, sports shoes are one of the worst inventions ever.

Dalibor introduces us to the idea of the studio, his training system, and talks through some interesting facts. We are offered some snacks and drinks while we wait for the grand opening talk.

Petrinic Fitness System’s goal is to elevate health level in Tenerife in general. Dalibor explained how he was surprised when he arrived to the island. He said ‘This is the best place for exercising, and people are not doing it’. The idea is to train personally or in small groups no more than 4 or 5 people. The owner explains, that by training in large groups, you are not looking for anything but injuring yourself at any moment. ‘There aren’t two people in this world who can perform the same fitness programme’ he says.

12544653_216761851991318_873018768_o
Dalibor Petrinic, the owner and the personal trainer

90% of information about fitness online – is false, Dalibor states. But we live in the virtual world, and most if not all information comes from the internet. So how do we select the right information?

‘People ask, how long will it take, and I say, all your lives’. Dalibor explains how diets, get fit quickly, and other fake programmes simply don’t work so we simply need to be realistic. The problem of our busy lives today, is that we are always looking for shortcuts, and this is wrong, we must enjoy the process of becoming better than we were yesterday and be ready to make it our lifestyles, healthy lifestyles. ‘If we are not in the peace of mind, we will never be happy about our bodies’ he says.

The shocking fact is that a vast majority of people today are obese or overweight, including children. We are drawn into the world of Carbonated drinks, Refined sugars, Artificial sweeteners and Processed foods. Attention to detail, first capital letters add up to ‘CRAP’. ‘There is one thing worse than cocaine – sugar’. It is highly addictive, and if we would give up sugar for 30 days, we would experience miracles, says Dalibor.

‘We are not happy, because we are not designed to sit in the office all day, we are people designed to be active and be out in the fresh air.’ The owner of the studio highlights, how far we’ve come away from our natural selves; human beings.

Petrinic Fitness System is only looking for truly interested and motivated people who are ready to change their lifestyles and see all that they are capable of.

There are no shortcuts, so if you are ready to transform your life, become healthier and happier, this is for YOU.

Getting to the Island by Ferry

Most of visitors choose an airplane to get to their holiday destination. Quick, safe and easy way to travel. It is comfortable and accessible from pretty much any point of the world. But what if you had more time?

Tenerife-Island-3
http://travelhdwallpapers.com/

Having more time today, sounds like mission impossible. We are all caught in our daily routines, tiring jobs that majority aren’t happy about. We get stressed and annoyed for not getting holiday on our preferred dates, for not getting enough of days and all we do is rush and stress. But what if?

What if you could, or perhaps you do already have enough of time to travel differently? Without rushing to the airport, jumping on the plane, rushing to the hotel and only then enjoying your destination. Life isn’t about the destination, result or final point. Life is about the journey.

Here is how you can enjoy your journey getting to Tenerife.

If you like driving, jump on your car and drive to South Spain, Huelva or Cadiz. From there you will catch a ferry which will take you to Canary Islands. Wherever you are driving from make sure to book ferry tickets early, as it only operates once a week.

There are plenty of cheap hotels to stay for a night, make sure you do so, it’s not about rushing to your destination, it is about enjoying the journey remember?

It also is a great way to travel with pets. This way your best friends stay with you. Whether it’s a dog, cat or a parrot, ferries allow pets for a very small charge, and you can visit them at allocated times. It is much cheaper than flying your pet on a plane.

When you reach the ferry, it’s time to relax. Whether you choose Naviera Armas or Trasmediterranea, you will find cafes, bars, entertainment and possibly a swimming pool to spend time for the next two days.

Enjoy the journey, love life.

Floating On Air With The Helidream Sky Experience

Rising majestically from Los Torres in Adeje, I cursed those action movie stars for my pre-flight nerves. There was no big screen dipping and swooping, just a smooth ascent as the La Caleta coastline stretched out below the four seater Robinson R44 helicopter.

This first time flyer was buckled in at the rear as my fellow passenger sat up front, both of us in two way conversation with our multi lingual pilot through our headsets. The wind socks were billowing down at the helipad but as we turned smoothly rising to 500 metres there was no buffeting, just smooth progress along the Adeje shoreline passing over Playa San Juan marina as it basked in the morning sunshine. The panoramic view ahead was inspiring and a small pop open flap below my side window allowed my camera to get some uninterrupted shots of the Tenerife west coast at its finest.

The contrasts and natural beauty of Tenerife are better appreciated from a wide, overhead perspective and Helidream Canarias can draw on six years of experience operating helicopter flights in Barcelona as part of the Bigas Grup. The American-built chopper made an epic 50 hour relocation to Tenerife via Morocco and Lanzarote when they set up in Adeje at the end of 2012. My 50 km trip was up to Los Gigantes and back. They also do a 30 km coast and barrancos trip over the southern tourist spots; an 85 km flight to the north west corner of Buenavista del Norte, and a 120 km ride to Volcan Teide, the last two include a meal at a beach restaurant.

Years of local hill walking have given me some amazing views but the sight of the towering cliffs of Los Gigantes from above gave me a whole new appreciation of how they have been formed and sculpted by nature. Turning in my comfy seat to compare views from each window highlighted the contrast of the lava flows above Santiago del Teide, the villages like Tamaimo nestling in the folds of the hills, and rise of the tourist complexes set against the large expanses of rugged coast and banana plantations.

On the return leg I could easily pick out the recently developed compact beaches of Callao Salvaje and Playa Paraiso linked by a coastal path. Hotel guests on their sun beds slipped on their sun glasses for a better look at the sleek black helicopter flying overhead as cars and buses carved their way through the hills inland. There was so much to absorb, I hardly noticed the motion of flying. The big bird had certainly seen off the small, pre-trip butterflies. Landing, like take off, was gentle and smooth, it was certainly an experience that added another dimension to my understanding of Tenerife.
