Rugged, lively, cultural.

Tenerife is a popular holiday destination, but don’t let visions of busy beaches put you off – you’ll find plenty on your Tenerife cruise that still feels pure, unspoiled and undiscovered.

The photogenic, crater-like landscape of Tenerife gives it a point of difference from other European holiday destinations. The volcanic crater of Monte Teide, one of Spain’s seven major national nature reserves, is a fine example of Tenerife’s sparse, unapologetic beauty.

Tenerife is the largest of the Canary Islands and is well-known for its Carnival, which takes place every February in Santa Cruz. It’s up there on the world stage with Rio de Janeiro carnival and the Mardi Gras in New Orleans and it is an exuberant celebration of music, costume and dance.

There’s also plenty of culture to discover on your Tenerife cruise. Museums and art galleries abound, offering insights into Tenerife’s history and there are also many notable buildings spanning centuries of architectural styles.

Weather & what to pack

Tenerife is often referred to as “the island of eternal spring” due to its warm and mild year-round climate. Unlike many other destinations, in Tenerife, blue skies, warm temperatures and sunshine are guaranteed for most of the year. No wonder Tenerife cruises are so popular among our guests! Pack light cotton layers, a sunhat and sun protection. If you want to go hiking, Tenerife’s craggy terrain means you’ll need to pack sturdy walking shoes.
