Really want to see Tenerife? Get flying. Paragliding is very popular here and quite rightly, it’ easy to get high and, wow, what views. Soaring over the verdant uplands, or the endless pine forests, the island’s true beauty opens up before you. Perhaps it’s just a short tandem trip, or perhaps take a course and learn to fly solo. It can be done all year round, although winter is best for expert pilots.
