Tenerife is the ideal place for a complete and different holiday at any time of year. With exceptional weather and an exuberant natural environment, full of contrasting landscapes, the island has modern, top-class and comfortable hotels and self-catering accommodation that put it among the top holiday destinations in Europe.
On the other hand, the modern Conference and Convention Centers, in both the north, the south of the island and in Santa Cruz, more than meet the demanding requirements of conference and incentive travel tourism.
For those who prefer a more direct contact with nature, the rural tourism accommodation and camp sites provided another way of discovering the island.
The Tenerife Island Cabildo has created a Tourist Accessibility Guide for people with impaired mobility, offering a data base that covers everything from hotels to public buildings.
Tenerife is known internationally as the “Island of Eternal Spring” (Isla de la Eterna Primavera). The island, being on a latitude of the Sahara Desert, enjoys a warm climate year-round with an average of 20° – 22°C in the winter and 26° – 28°C in the summer and high sunshine totals. The moderate climate of Tenerife is controlled to a great extent by the tradewinds, whose humidity, principally, is condensed over the north and northeast of the island, creating cloud banks that range between 600 and 1,800 meters in height.
The average temperatures, however, can fluctuate between 17-18°C and 24-25°C in the winter season. Evidently there are climatic contrasts which do occur on the island, particularly during the winter months when it is possible to enjoy the warm sunshine on the coast and experience snow within just miles, 3000 metres above sea level on Teide.
However, although climatic differences in rainfall and sunshine on the island exist, overall annual precipitation is very low with some of the summer months often not receiving any days of rainfall. In June and July in particular it is rare to receive any.
Tenerife is the largest Canary Island called the “Island of Eternal Spring“.It is dominated by the 3718 meters high volcano Mount Teide with its mighty crater. The Teide is not only the highest mountain of all Spain, but also the mountain with the highest elevation in all the Atlantic Ocean.
