A Unique Spectacle of Nature
Spring for many of us is the most beautiful time of year. After weeks of icy cold, snow and dark days we can’t wait to feel the first rays of sunshine on our faces, to hear the birds singing and watch spring bloom. While spring is taking its time elsewhere, you can already enjoy it to the fullest on our favorite Canary Island, Tenerife.
In Santiago del Teide you get a special kind of spring fever:
At the foot of the volcano Teide a unique natural spectacle is waiting for you. The almond trees blossom! A sea of white and rosy blossoms extends as far as the eye can see. There are numerous hiking trails which invite you to enjoy the landscape. If you prefer to be more comfortable, you can also have a walk through the amazing almond trees. You have the opportunity to be enchanted by the almond blossoms in Santiago del Teide until the end of March.
