With its sunny climate and plenty of unspoilt nature, Tenerife is the perfect destination for trail running all year round. Experience the breathtaking scenery of Tenerife on this small group running tour with an expert guide. It doesn’t matter if you’re preparing for a marathon or just fancy a little running practise on your holiday. Our trail running tours are suitable for runners of all levels.
To start, we’ll pick you up at your hotel and take you to one of the amazing running trails around the island. There are several areas of Tenerife that are well suited for running. Choose your favourite one from the options below, or ask our helpful adventure guides to suggest the perfect one for you.
You will be able to leave your belongings in the car, taking with you only the essentials, such as drinking water and snacks. During the run your guide will point out interesting sights and landmarks along the way, and you will have an opportunity to stop and take photos if you wish.
We choose the best one with you per weather conditions and your wishes.
Breathe in the fresh air and enjoy the scenery on the winding trails that make their way across this thick pine forest. The trails are varied enough to challenge all levels of runners with terrific views of La Orotava valley down below and Mt. Teide on the horizon.
Gateway to the largest forest on Tenerife, La Esperanza will impress with green pines, cypresses and eucalyptus trees, some of which can soar as high as 40 metres. The forest paths are occasionally interrupted by natural viewpoints, giving the area its well-deserved reputation as a firm favourite among hikers and runners from near and far.
Get mesmerized by the natural beauty of magical Anaga as you make your way across ancient paths surrounded by lush laurisilva trees. The geologically rich area offers naturally varied terrain while playing host to a significant diversity of wildlife including reptiles and birds. Whether you’re a seasoned runner or beginner, we’re sure you’re going to love these trails.
Teide National Park (Roques de García)
The trails crisscrossing in Teide National Park are a real treat for runners to explore. The volcanic landscape comprised of hundreds of bizarre rock formations is so out of this world, you could easily think you’re running on the moon. The high altitude combined with heat and humidity makes it a perfect run for anyone looking for a bit of a challenge.
