School Trips to Tenerife
Tenerife is the biggest of the Canary Islands, which lie off the North West coast of Africa. Its sub-tropical climate attracts over 10 million visitors a year giving it a reputation for mass-market tourism, but there's a lot more to this place than beaches, beer and egg and chips. A volcanic island, away from the resorts, the dramatic landscape is entirely unspoilt, and offers a diverse range of experiences. Ancient villages, lush gardens filled with weird looking plants, and up-market boutiques in capital city Santa Cruz de Tenerife are just the start of it. Move on up with a trip by cable car up Pico del Teide, which at 3718m is the highest mountain in Spain, or lace-up your hiking boots and explore the volcanic moonscape on foot. Recover with a day at the beach.

Emblem of the Canary Islands and without a doubt Tenerife's most spectacular natural feature, Mount Teide dominates practically the whole of Tenerife's centre and can be seen from virtually anywhere; the peak is often snow-capped and can be seen from the beach!
The Nashira Uno is a custom built motor catamaran. The design of the vessel is such that it reduces the possibility of sea-sickness therefore allowing those with weaker "sea legs" to join in on the excursions. She has a sun deck as well as a lower shaded deck and also has two glass bottomed panels that allow the guests to marvel at the amount of marine life.
Casa bioclimatica & Piramides de Guimar
Spain is well ahead of the UK in the use of renewable energies and this is demonstrated at Tenerife’s ITER centre where a range of architecturally extraordinary houses have been constructed using the latest approaches to sustainability. Stroll along a technological walkway to learn about the different kinds of renewable energies, then discover more about a green future for our environment at ITER’s visitor centre.
Cuevas del Viento
The Cabildo Insular de Tenerife (Tenerife Island Government), through the Organismo Autónomo de Museos y Centros (OAMC - museums), has been gradually clearing part of the Cueva del Viento in Icod de los Vinos, one of the longest volcanic tunnels in the world. 18 km of underground passages require special protection to guarantee the conservation of their natural values, while receiving small groups of guided tours. A natural attraction unique to Tenerife.
This resort town in the Santiago del Teide town on the west coast of Tenerife has been designed and constructed to blend in with the surroundings. Students can study the natural coastlines and how the pressures of tourism have affected the area.
