Cycling Tenerife:
your ultimate guide

Tenerife is one of the world's best road cycling destinations.  It's the largest of the Canary islands and, just off the African coast, offers a reliably warm climate year-around and fantastic climbing on smooth roads.

One of our favourite things about cycling in Tenerife is the dramatic scenery: from the lost world of Masca to vertical sea cliffs and the spectacular Mount Teide, Spain's highest mountain. You can see Teide from all over the island, looming upwards; it's one of the main attractions for the pro cycling teams that descend on the island during training camp season.

There aren't many places you can train on 40+km climbs that take you from sea level to 2,300m during European winter.

Cycling Tenerife is about as good as it gets.

During Northern Hemisphere winter, Tenerife cycling training camps are abundant. But the island is also a major "sun and sand" holiday destination, with lots of hotels, water parks and beaches that make it a great choice if you're with family.

cycling Tenerife: routes

As far as cycling routes in Tenerife go, by far the most famous ride is cycling up Mount Teide. The mountain dominates the island and if you're coming to Tenerife to cycle, it's unthinkable you'd leave without tackling it. 

tips for an unforgettable Mount Teide cycling experience

There are five major routes up; our post will help you choose which to do - Cycling Mount Teide: which is the best Teide cycling route?  Any one of these up and down routes of Teide could easily be a whole ride in itself: even the fittest amateurs will take at least 2.5 hours to climb to the top.

But if you've got all day and want a truly special ride, check out our two Teide loops below. On a good day, we reckon either of these could be contenders for being one of the best road bike rides in the world.

2 unmissable rides for Once you've done Teide...

Yes, you've got to tick off the Teide climb by bike. But there are some other awesome Tenerife bike routes too. To really experience the island, ride the road north to Masca where craggy Andes-style mountains are dotted with rustic Spanish villages before they plunge into the turquoise sea. The scenery is epic - but so are the gradients. This is one tough ride.

From Masca it's not far to the unforgettable Teno lighthouse. The road clings to the cliff and offers draw-dropping Atlantic views before bringing you to the spectacular lighthouse at the end of the peninsula. 

We also love our Anaga loop. It's on one of the island's most beautiful roads where you'll find quiet, smooth ribbons of tarmac that wind up into green forests and down narrow lanes to the sea. It's easier than the Masca loop too...

However you do need to bear in mind that Masca and Anaga are in the north of the island. This can make accessing these rides a bit tricky unless you have your own transport or book a tour. Something to think about when you decide where to stay: our guide towhere to stay in Tenerife for cyclists might help! Also check out our map below, which shows the routes overlaid on each other, so you can see their location on the island.

If you hate climbing, cycling holidays in Tenerife are not for you!

Most of the roads either go up or down, there's very little in the way of flat Tenerife cycle routes. What there is is not that exciting. 

But while most of the roads go up or down, at least the main roads (like those up Teide) are generally at decent gradients (just avoid some of the extremely steep side roads). This makes them accessible even if you're only moderately fit. Cycling in Tenerife is more about endurance than extreme fitness: you don't need to be a Contador or Quintana, you "just" need to be able to keep going for kilometre after kilometre!

If you're looking for a rest day ride that avoids some of the major climbs you should be able to put together an easy-moderate route with a bit of planning. Here are some ideas:

  • A loop around La Orotava via Palo Blanco, Benijos and La Perdoma, along the TF-326, TF-21 and TF-324: around 24km with 700m of climbing. 
  • Granadilla de Abona to Arafo along the TF-28 and TF-525: roughly 54km and 1,000m of climbing each way. Our Teide via Vilaflor loop includes this section. 
  • La Orotava to Tejina on the northwest coast, along the TF-21, TF-217, TF-1224 and TF-16: around 32km with 600m of climbing.

Once you've decided on your resort, come back here for our top choices of where to stay for cycling in Tenerife. We suggest hotels in

Our choice: Be live, Playa La Arena

We spent five nights at Be Live, Playa La Arena. It's a large hotel with lots of facilities and it's a good option if you're travelling with children and/or looking for an all-inclusive package.

what we lIKed

  • Good location on the west coast, giving access from the door to Teide (via Chio) and also to Masca in the northwest.
  • Large, attractive pool area with three pools surrounded by palm trees, facing the sea. The main pool is in the middle and pool activities are run here (for example water aerobics). The pool closest to the sea does not permit the use of inflatables and so is quieter and has an adult focus. The small children's pool is furthest from the sea. It is divided into two with half being the drop off zone for the water slide and the other half the shallow pool for toddlers. 
  • Our 4 year old loved the waterslide and spent at least an hour just taking himself up and down it.
  • Kid-friendly activities in addition to the pool area. The kids club (open 11-12:45 and 3-5, children under 6 have to be accompanied by an adult) is based next to an excellent pirate ship climbing frame. The same area also hosts mini golf, archery, a pétanque court, balance beams course and tennis court. Near the pools there is also table tennis.
  • Gym and spa. There is also a program of daytime and evening activities, should you wish to participate.
  • Lift access from the hotel down to the black sand beach of Playa La Arena.
  • Wide range of food available at each meal and each night has a different theme. A limited range of food is cooked to order (for example eggs or omelettes for breakfast).
  • Our superior family room on the 6th floor contained a king sized bed and sofa bed for the children. It was sufficiently spacious for the four of us though the cupboard space was limited (we'd definitely recommend using packing cases so you don't have to fully unpack). The children enjoyed the blackboard, floor puzzle and play tent in the room, as well as the kids bathroom accessories.
  • We enjoyed the views from our room across Playa La Arena to the cliffs of Los Gigantes.

things to be aware of

  • The hotel is used by a number of British, German and French holiday operators. This is no small boutique hotel.
  • We would suggest the hotel is more 3 star than 4 star. It's comfortable, with good facilities, but don't expect it to be overly smart. 
  • The hotel charges for extras you might normally expect to be included. For example, use of the safe deposit box in each room and use of the hotel car park. A 12 euro deposit is also payable for each pool towel.
  • Food is served 7:30-10:30, 13:00-15:00 and 18:30-21:30 in the main restaurant. Outside of those times, food is available in the snack bar but the choice is much more limited that the main restaurant and we didn't find it very appetising.


We enjoyed our stay here. Our 2 and 4 year old kids loved the facilities and we liked the location.

When to go

Average temperatures in Tenerife remain a solid 17-24 throughout the year, making it a good choice for anyone looking to cycle Tenerife in the sun. Rainfall is also low - you're most likely to get rain in December and even then it's only on average for 6 days of the month.

Throughout the year it's worth remembering that the north side of the island is often cooler and wetter than the south. There's a reason the scenery in the north is greener than the arid rocky south! Also know that the upper part of the island is often shrouded in a thin layer of clouds that forms around Mount Teide at 1,000-1,500htm.

As for the difficult question of exactly how much cooler and wetter the north is than the south, we asked local cyclist Carolyn Gaskell to comment. She lives in the north-east of the island and had this to say:

"Yes, it’s definitely wetter and colder in the north compared to the south. But it’s also much more beautiful! The north side (Los Silos - Puerto De la Cruz get the sunsets and is in the shade of the Teide and therefore cool in the mornings - generally). It’s much busier traffic wise that side, because the motorway stops at Puerto, so all the cars are on the main road. The side roads through the villages are nice, but steep! The Anaga mountains, is my favourite area, they are very often covered in a light mist cloud, and it also rains properly up there too. February-March are usually the worst months for rain. August is commonly the worst month for winds, November to January, usually have the calmest weather, but it’s not an exact science... and the last few years have been quite unpredictable!"


Temperatures on Tenerife remain good for cycling throughout the Northern Hemisphere winter. At sea level, short sleeve jerseys and bib shorts should be fine. However, you may get some rain and in the mountains temperatures can be much colder than at sea level. Frost and ice above 2,000m is possible. Dress accordingly.

  • Average highs: 20-21℃
  • Rainfall: 38-43mm, 4-5 days per month




Temperatures increase a little and the risk of rain reduces. On most days, the temperature at midday is similar in the mountains as at sea level, assuming it's not too cloudy in the mountains. It's still wortth packing a windproof jacket and arm warmers.

  • Average highs: 22-23℃
  • Rainfall: 8-19 mm, 2-3 days per month



You can expect warm days and a low risk of rain during this period. Sometimes it can be warmer in the mountains than at sea level. It's still worth bringing a windproof jacket if you're planning on mountain descents: they are long and the windchill can be surprising.

  • Average highs: 25-28℃
  • Rainfall: 2-4 mm, 1 day per month




September remains very warm with barely any risk of rain but as October rolls in, that risk increases. As in April and May, temperatures are often similar in the mountains as at sea level but pack a jacket and arm warmers in case.

  • Average highs: 25-27℃
  • Rainfall: 9-26 mm, 1-4 days per month



See comments for January to March. Rainfall in November and December is a bit higher than January to March, with averages at 47 and 56 mm and 5 and 6 days respectively.


Tips and articles

This section includes details of products we have either used and liked or which we think look great. Full disclosure: it includes links to our shop and also affiliate links where if you click on a link and make a purchase, we will earn a commission. Please read our disclosure policy for further information.


If you'd like something to remind you of your trip to Tenerife, take a look at our personalised cycling illustrations: you, in your kit, on Mount Teide. You'll find examples of our Ventoux, Alpe d'Huez, Stelvio and Sa Calobra illustrations and more details in our shop.

There's also the beautiful Mountains: Epic Cycling Climbs book by Michael Blann, which includes stunning images of Teide.


We used and liked the following two guidebooks during our Tenerife trip:

  • Marco Polo guide to Tenerife: the book gives an overview of the main destinations on the island and we liked the introductory chapters on the island and its food and drink. It comes with a separate map at 1:130,000 which was useful for high level planning but lacking sufficient detail to show all the minor roads.
  • The Real Tenerife by Andrea and Jack Montgomery puts a bit more flesh on the bones. It's a personal guide to Tenerife  and more opinionated than the Marco Polo guide. The enthusiastic authors help you get under the island's skin, but we did find that some of their descriptions were a little over-romantic. Also the photos are black and white, there is no index and the map is poor. Nonetheless, a refreshing change to your typical guidebook.


If you like physical maps for route planning, it's worth buying the Globe series map of Tenerife. At 1:75,000 it shows all the roads relevant to cyclists. It is annotated with symbols for things like gas stations and tourist destinations which you may either like or not.

Good to know

Tenerife has two airports, one in the south in the municipality of Granadilla de Abona (this is the larger of the two) and the other in the north in San Cristóbal de La Laguna. Decide where you want to base yourself before booking your flights! You can see the location of the two airports in this article by Sky Scanner.
