Our world is chock full of amazing places. Seriously, go out your front door, start walking in any random direction, and chances are that you’ll probably hit something interesting within a few hours. It could be a meadow, a groovy street you’ve never visited before, a windswept stretch of coastline, or even just an all…

Walking in Tenerife is definitely worth a try even if you are not hiking-savvy. From your base at the IBEROSTAR Grand Hotel el Mirador you can explore the island away by foot.
