Overview

Tenerife is the biggest of Spain's Canary Islands and it boasts the best rock climbing! The hundreds of sport climbing routes and boulders offer something for beginner and experienced climbers alike, both in the sun and shade. The real protagonist here is the volcano: you can climb on amazing volcanic rock, chill on golden volcanic beaches, hike through stunning volcanic landscapes. You can even dive off volcanic cliffs into the sea! You will spend 5 days in Arico, the epicenter of rock climbing in Tenerife. Two of these days will be full-on climbing days, where you will get the chance to explore some of Tenerife's best crags with a local certified guide. You'll also spend an 'active' rest day hiking, deep water soloing or surfing, so you can get to know the island in all its glory!

Tenerife, Canary Islands

Tenerife is the ideal destination for outdoor enthusiasts, with spots to practice diving, windsurfing, paragliding, mountain biking, climbing - you name it!
In terms of rock climbing potential, Tenerife's characteristic volcanic basalt has been molded into some incredible shapes, meaning that each crag boasts something totally unique. You'll mostly find single-pitch sport climbing and bouldering, but there are plenty of routes for all tastes and abilities, from welcoming slabs to powerful overhangs. There's even some incredible deep water soloing when the conditions are right!

Liability

Liability

Mapo Tapo selects crags and local partners with the utmost care. We can, for any inaccuracies, however, accept no liability. Rock climbing is a risky sport that takes place in nature. Ultimately, you are fully responsible for the choices you make. Mapo Tapo recommends that anyone who does not have sufficient knowledge not go outdoors alone.

I learn a lot from the local guides, thanks to whom I became familiar with the rock and learnt how to clean and descend from a route. I also got to know great people and make new friends, which is just as important!

FAQs

There is no minimum level required for this trip. Tenerife is a super beginner-friendly climbing destination, with something for all grades and styles. Safety-wise you'll be accompanied at all times by a certified guide.

The minimum number of bookings required for this trip to run is 3, and the maximum group size 8.

All transfers to/ from the airport, crags and other activities are included in the trip price. Just let us know your flight details ahead of time.

3 full days of climbing in a row is a lot - especially if you're not really used to it! Instead, we decided to break the trip up into 2 full days of climbing and an 'active' rest day, which gives you the time to allow your skin to recover. That way, you can really push your limits during your climbing days and try some fun new sports during the 'rest' day.
