    An excellent and varied weeks walking.

    Five quite different walks around various locations on Tenerife. The environments varied from shady paths through primary forest to the barren volcanic landscape high on Mt.Teide. The 'moderate' grade is a bit low in my opinion, walkers expecting five easy walks will be in for a big surprise!

    What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?

    Climbing to the summit Mt.Teide at 3720m. We had great weather and it was and excellent day's walking.

    What did you think of your group leader?

    Our leader was excellent, he had wide local knowledge and a very laid-back attitude with the group. It probably helped in that there were only four of us.

    Do you have any advice for potential travellers?

    It's can be hot - very hot. On our second day, even though all of the route was downhill it was still exhausting as we seemed to be walking through a cauldron! The summit day on Mt.Teide involves a 1500m climb to an altitude of 3720m without any acclimatisation. In my opinion, that's beyond 'moderate' and well into 'challenging' grade!

    Is there anything else you would like to add?

    The first part of the trip is in La Laguna - the hotel is in a pedestrian zone and surrounded by numerous shops / bars /cafes / restaurants etc. It's a lovely area to walk around in the evening. Don't expect a rural hotel for the second part of the trip, the only thing 'rural' about it is the name! - it's in quite a large town. The nearest shops etc. are a fair distance away. This doesn't really matter, it's just not quite what we were expecting from the trip notes.

    Wonderful holiday!

    Tenerife massively surpassed my expectations, with truly fantastic trekking, keeping away from the touristy hubs that blight the reputation of this stunning island. My GSCE Spanish came in handy as surprisingly little English was spoken in the 2 areas we were based. La Laguna is a great little town with beautiful buildings, shops and restaurants. It felt a proper town rather than a tourist trap. Los Realejos was a jumble of steep hills and sea views and offers one of the best sunset spots to enjoy a beer that I have found on my travels! Our group couldn't go to the summit of Teide as it was shut due to snow/ice. Although we were disappointed, the walk we did instead (a summit of the islands 3rd highest peaks) ended up being the highlight of the week.

    What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?

    Enjoying a delicious picnic with spectacular view of Mount Teide in the background.

    What did you think of your group leader?

    Javier was brilliant. He was very knowledgeable in fact I don't think there was a question he couldn't answer! He showed us the true side to Tenerife and I think we all left with the feeling that we wanted to go back again.

    Do you have any advice for potential travellers?

    Take a basic Spanish vocab book! We were there in March and it was nice and hot in the days (hats and sun cream essential) but chilly in the evenings so make sure you bring a couple of good jumpers.

    Natural Tenerife

    A lovely week in the amazingly varied Tenerife. We enjoyed five great walks, delicious food and comfortable hotels. Our guide, Javier, led us expertly throughout, explaining the islands history, geology, flora and fauna. There was nothing he didn't know about his homeland and was always willing to share it with the group.

    What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?

    The views of Mount Teide in the sunshine.

    What did you think of your group leader?

    An all round great guy. Well organised, friendly and endlessly helpful to us all

    Do you have any advice for potential travellers?

    Get fir. Some of the walks are tough
