Tour overview

THE ISLAND OF A THOUSAND EXPERIENCES

This tour should be on every cyclist’s bucket list. Over 6 days on the spectacular island of Tenerife, you’ll get the chance to ascend the famous Mount Teide (2,350 m) three times, enjoy fantastic local dishes and make like-minded, adventurous new friends. 

This tour will start in the charming seaside town of Los Cristianos on the south-west coast of Tenerife. It is an ideal location to kick off this six-day adventure and also where this tour will be based. No matter your experience on the bike, we offer a range of short, medium and long routes to choose from each day, not to mention you will receive the full support of the Epico team to make sure you are having a great time. 

You will also be accompanied by a support van on each route during this tour around one of the most beautiful islands in the world. Please note that each day you will get to choose from three routes that vary in difficulty. The short route normally starts at the base of the climb and you will just ride up and down. The medium and long ride groups will ride some extra distance and elevation and will take a longer route back to the hotel.

Tour destination

Stunning Beaches, Volcanos and Perfect Roads

Tenerife is the island of a thousand experiences. It is the largest of the Canary Islands, and because of the mild climate and vast array of activities available, there are a thousand things to do at any time of year. Spend the day at the beach, ride along one of the mountain trails, discover impressive volcanoes and otherworldly landscapes, as well as striking ravines and cliffs. Spend an evening in great company gazing at the endless stars or make your dream of seeing dolphins and whales swimming in the wild a reality!

  • Weather

    Tenerife has a very warm, Mediterranean climate and 365 days of sunshine! Its geographical location means that Tenerife enjoys wonderfully long days all year round, with the sun rising at around 7:30 am and setting at 6:30 pm in winter, and rising at 7:00 am and setting at 8:30 pm in summer.

  • Terrain

    The island is dominated by Mount Teide, a volcano that stands 12,198 feet (3,718 metres) tall and is the highest mountain in the Spanish territories. Many resorts on the island (and even the other Canary Islands) have spectacular views of this massive peak.

  • Culture

    Tenerife is surrounded by Spanish and Canarian culture, with the Spanish way of life taking precedence in the island's quaint villages, architecture that is typically Spanish, and a festival lineup that comes directly from Spain. The Sabandeno Festival in La Laguna is a full-on celebration of Canarian culture.
