Tenerife is much more than package holidays! The island has infinite hiking options, delicious and exotic food. Its people are some of the kindest I met on my travels.

After working 3 months on this beautiful Canarian island, I realized that Tenerife is not only a perfect destination for expats but that a natural paradise is hidden behind the hotel blocks.

In order to show you the other side of Tenerife, I put this little selection together. I hope that these photos will make you want to travel to Tenerife…NOW

Oh, and as always, the pictures of the post are not edited. I wanted to let the natural beauty shine through them.
