Escape the winter chill with this unique SwimTrek adventure 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.
As our only Atlantic Ocean destination, this trip offers a truly unique experience on the SwimTrek calendar. Including dramatic cliff swims, a spectacular hike down the Masca Gorge and personalised coaching sessions in a world-class training facility, this trip includes a fantastic mix of activities over the course of the week.
Your sessions at the state-of-the-art sports complex, Tenerife Top Training (T3), includes swimming coaching and training tips in an open-air 50-metre pool, as well as comprehensive technique analysis using T3’s fantastic 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 means that water conditions can vary considerably from one day to the next.
Who Is This Trip For?
This trip is ideal for swimmers with some open water experience who are looking for a combination of activities to enjoy during their early or late season escape. With coastal swims, pool sessions, technique video analysis in T3’s flume, and a challenging trek down the Masca Gorge, this trip offers something different and unique from other SwimTrek adventures.
Swimmers should have a basic understanding of open water swimming and be capable of completing the average daily swim distance of around 5 km (split over a minimum of two swims) prior to the start of the trip.
