Canyoning in Tenerife

Walk, swim, drop and… jump!

In Tenerife, there is no shortage of canyons

If there is one thing that characterizes the island of Tenerife (and the Canary Islands in general), apart from its splendid climate, it is its rugged relief. Teide is the jewel in the crown, but the massifs of Anaga, Teno and Adeje and the labyrinth of associated ridges give rise to one of the hallmarks of the territory: the ravines. It was to be expected that canyoning in Tenerife would be all the rage among locals and visitors alike.

Canyoning brings together the best of mountain sports.

Canyoning as such is a relatively recent sport. This little sister of hiking, mountaineering and climbing has quickly made a place for itself in the hearts of mountain enthusiasts. The reason is obvious: exciting, varied and sometimes highly technical, it brings together the best of each specialty without sacrificing anything.

Canyoning in Tenerife is, therefore, one of those activities that you should include in your agenda during your stay on the island of eternal spring. It will allow you to get in close contact with the exuberant nature of Tenerife, challenge your own limits and, if you have never done it before, discover an exciting activity.

Whether dry or wet and with the degree of difficulty that best suits your abilities, canyoning in Tenerife offers you the chance to experience a truly intense experience. To make it easy for you, here are a few locations and, above all, tour operators to whom you can turn for support and advice.
