Things to Do in Tenerife Alone
What are the hottest trips for solo travellers?
There are so many guided tours that you could do something different every day of your vacation. And you can choose as you please. And if you want to stay in bed longer in the morning and just don't want to do anything for the rest of the day, this is entirely up to you. Enjoy this freedom! Here are a few suggestions for trips you might like to join:
A Buggy Tour Alone
Do you love adventure and enjoy some action every now and then? Then do not hesitate and just get in one of these open fun vehicles on four wheels. A buggy tour in Tenerife assures both: adventure and action. You sit behind the steering wheel on your own. There is no one to whom you have to cede the driver's seat during the tour or who constantly tells you how to drive. You will enjoy these circumstances to the fullest. Take your driver's license with you and you're ready to go.
Fun on a Jet Ski Safari
A Jet Ski Safari is one of the water sports activities in Tenerife, where the adrenaline will get your pulse racing as you steer your Jet Ski across the ocean at a daring pace. Follow your guide, who will take you to hidden bays and exciting caves in the cliffs along the way. And maybe you will also meet one of the marine mammals, who like to frolic off the coast of Tenerife.
Hiking Tour For Nature Lovers
Tenerife offers an enormously varied natural landscape. There is the green, tropical-looking north. Or the moon-like areas of the Teide highlands. But also the deeply cut, mysterious gorges. You can explore all of this on guided hiking tours. The guide tells you everything interesting about the flora and fauna of the island and leads you to breathtaking natural monuments.
Partying on a Party Boat
If you like to party and meet new people, then you are in a good place on a party boat. You will usually be greeted with a welcome drink on board of the mostly larger boats. While the boat cruises off the coast of the Canary Island, you dance to good party music and treat yourself to some cool drinks. At the various stops, you can refresh yourself with a dip in the Atlantic. And maybe after the tour you can head for the night life with new friends.
What Should You Pay Attention to When Booking?
- Book in advance: Some activities are particularly popular depending on the season. In the winter half year, for example, the guided hiking tours can be booked out for days. We therefore recommend that you book your desired excursions on our website before leaving for your vacation. This way you are guaranteed spaces.
- Conditions of participation: Some of the operators make participation in their excursions subject to certain requirements that guests must meet. These mostly relate to personal characteristics such as minimum age, maximum weight, health or athletic condition. Sometimes driving licenses or other licenses are required, such as for buggy tours or diving activities.
- Hotel transfer: If you want to be picked up from your hotel for your excursions, make sure that the service is offered by the operator for your hotel and is included in the price.
This information can be found in detail in all descriptions of our excursions under the menu items “Please Note!” and “Services & Prices”.
Activities on Your Own For Solo Travellers
Explore the Island With a Rental Car
If you want to do something just for yourself, the best way to do it is by a rental car. Tenerife offers countless places where you can find peace and solitude. Enjoy breathtaking views and take in the stunning nature of the island. Take food with you so that you can have a picnic in a nice place on the way.
There are some superlative parks on the Canary Island. Loro Park is one of the largest zoos in the world. Plan a whole day to be able to fully explore it. Or spend a day in the Siam water park. If you race down some of the spectacular water slides, it will take your breath away. Here is a list of other interesting parks that are worth visiting: The Mariposario, a butterfly park in Icod de los Vinos; the Monkey Park, a primate zoo near Los Cristianos and the Palmetum, a botanical garden in Santa Cruz de Tenerife.
Enjoy the Nightlife
Singles can treat themselves to the luxury of immersing into the pulsating nightlife, because you have the possibility sleep in the next day. In this regard, you will not be disappointed in Tenerife. Especially in the tourist centers of the southwest of the island, night owls can look forward to long party miles. Discos, music bars, pubs and restaurants - there is something for every taste. Most people are exuberant and friendly, which makes it very easy for you to connect with like-minded people if you want.
More Information For Solo Travellers and Singles
Single Parents Holidays in Tenerife
Solo travellers and singles with children will find everything that makes a vacation a great time together on Tenerife. Most of the hotels offer special services for their little visitors. These are, for example, children's entertainment and childcare or leisure and activity facilities. There is also plenty to do during your vacation with the child in Tenerife. Water and amusement parks, zoos and many organized excursions suitable for children keep boredom away and will amaze the little ones. And last but not least, you can spend wonderful days on the beaches, which are protected from currents and waves thanks to the moles.
Hotels For Singles and Solo Travellers in Tenerife
Hotels that only accommodate solo travellers do not exist on Tenerife. However, there are “adults-only” hotels that seem to be made for singles. If you are traveling alone and give great importance to rest and relaxation, we recommend that you spend your vacation in such a hotel. No children are accepted as guests here. Generally, most hotels offer single rooms. Otherwise, you also have the option of renting one of the island's numerous holiday apartments. In these accommodations you cater for yourself and are therefore flexible with regard to meal times. In addition, small apartments with only one room are comparatively cheaper than a hotel room. And if you like seclusion, you will also find holiday apartments in tranquil, small mountain villages, far outside the major tourist centers.
