Escape the winter chill and start your pre-season training in style with a skill development camp on the beautiful volcanic island of Tenerife. With its breathtaking landscapes and enviable climate, Tenerife is the largest of the seven main islands which make up the Spanish archipelago of the Canary Islands, just 100 km off the coast of Morocco.
This coaching camp is the ideal way to ensure that both your body and mind are fully prepared for the open water swim stage in any distance triathlon. With a professional team of experienced triathlon and swim coaches to support you throughout the camp, get ready to enjoy some high quality open water coaching complemented by video analysis, seminars and Q&A sessions with your SwimTrek coaches.
Our focus is on stroke improvement, open water skills and longer endurance swims to build on your fitness. Your sessions at the state-of-the-art sports complex, Tenerife Top Training (T3), includes swim coaching in the open-air 50-metre pool, as well as comprehensive technique advice and video playback in T3’s fantastic glass walled swimming flume.
Based at the Hovima Jardin Caleta hotel in La Caleta, the trip’s open water swims take place in the relatively calm waters of Tenerife’s picturesque south-west coast, however the nature of ocean swimming here means that water conditions can vary considerably from one day to the next.
Who is this camp for?
This camp is a great choice for all triathletes, multi-sport athletes and swim-runners - regardless of experience, ability or race distance. This camp can help triathletes looking to develop technical swimming skills, to adapt to swimming in open water and to build swim endurance.

Triathletes should be able to swim 1 km or more in either the pool or open water prior to the start of the trip.
