Find your trip

Sendero de los Sentidos
Sendero de los Sentidos, Santa Cruz de Tenerife

In order to decipher all that Tenerife’s countryside has to offer, we recommend visiting the Sendero de los Sentidos (Path of the Senses), a true natural landscape with information panels that will help you to stimulate your sight, hearing, touch and smell.


Tenerife is crisscrossed by hundreds of them canyons, so it's no surprise that canyoning grows in popularity each year. There is also a rare chance to explore underground caverns hidden beneath our feet.


There’s a type of establishment on the Island known as a guachinche. These small, family-run eateries, often improvised on the terrace or in the garage of rural houses, only open at certain times of the year to offer wine from their own harvest accompanied by two or three traditional dishes at very affordable prices. Such establishments have deep roots on the Island, and islanders will be delighted to tell visitors how to find them. Our only recommendation: be sure to visit them.

Local Specialties

A great way to sample Tenerife’s cuisine is to try one of the island’s local delicacies. The “papas arrugadas” with red and green “mojos” are a must but there are plenty of dishes such as the Canarian stew (mixed vegetables and meat) and grilled sardines to excite food lovers. Honey is a very popular dessert ingredient and the most unusual-tasting type of honey is obtained from endemic species such as the Teide broom.
