“Hawaii of Europe” – “Island of Eternal Spring” – “Mini-Continent”.
There are many names and denominations for the largest of the Canary Islands. The reason for this is probably that the great variety and beauty of this island can hardly be summarized in a few words.
About 288 kilometres from the Moroccan coast, Tenerife belongs topographically to Africa. Politically, however, the Canary Islands are part of Spain. This means that holidaymakers in Tenerife enjoy a mild and sunny climate all year round and the advantages of the European Union, such as convenient payment with the euro.
Tenerife is of volcanic origin, which can be easily recognised by the proverbial centre of the island, the Teide. The active, but as sleeping considered volcano dominates the panorama with its gigantic 3718 height meters from all sides. In 2007, Spain’s highest mountain and its national park were inscribed on the UNESCO World Heritage List.
But besides the impressive mountain scenery around the national park, there is so much more to see on the island. Miles of black lava sand beaches, green pine forests, desert-like areas in ochre tones and the azure blue sea are just a few of the colours this mini continent has to offer. It is made possible by many micro-climatic zones that produce a wide variety of different flora and fauna in a confined space.
In addition to the beauty of the landscape, you will be enchanted by the cultural richness of your visit. Learn more about the indigenous people of the island called Guanchen, follow in the footsteps of famous explorers like Christopher Columbus and Alexander von Humboldt or let yourself be inspired by the warm and open nature of the Tinerfeños.
Whether it’s a beach holiday, an active holiday, a city tour or an immersion in the local culture – Tenerife offers you all this and so much more!
We look forward to welcoming you to Finca Bergmann as a starting point for an unforgettable stay and will be happy to help you get to know the real Tenerife and all its treasures.
