🌡Are you tired of cold weather, yet? 🌏🌅If you are joining us from anywhere in Europe, chances it's quite cold there right now? There's nothing better than travelling to a warm place in the middle of winter. Whenever I've done this in the past, I felt so rejuvenated, re-charged and just overall happier for doing so. And it's not just any odd destination...we are going to TENERIFE! YESSSS 🏔🌞 Tenerife, the crown jewel of the Canary Islands, is a volcanic island that has built up from the ocean floor during the last 20 million years, and it is the largest and most populous island of the Canary Islands . If you, like myself, are Nature lover, enjoy taking photos and being the outdoors, you will love Tenerife’s natural sea pools, hiking trails, Mount Teide and the magnificent Teide National Park which is a UNESCO World Heritage site. Rich in history, culture and biology, the island is a fascinating destination to explore, and I am inviting you to come discover it with me on this trip. I have planned this itinerary to take you on an unforgettable journey through Teide National Park's hiking trails, exhilarating whale watching tour, cultural visits to historical sites, and indulgent encounters with Tenerife's gastronomic delights. 👉🏼 Please note: the hike in Teide National Park : Because we are visiting in winter, the weather conditions can change, so we might have to take an alternative hike. Please , bear in mind, this is the highest Mountain in Spain, with the elevation of 3, 715 m. Your legs will ache 😂 Main attractions of the trip include: 🔸 Teide National Park ascend by cable car🌋 UNESCO World Heritage site 🔸 Whale watching tour 🐳 🔸 Sightseeing the island's most famous landmarks and leisure spots 🔸 Relaxing in Lago Martianez ( half day) 🔸 Lots of delicious local food 😋 Alternative excursions, should Mount Teide tour got cancelled: 🔸 Hiking Masca Gorge- Teno Rural Park (hiking shoes required for entry) 🔸 San Cristóbal de La Laguna- a city and municipality in the northern part of the island of Tenerife

ALOHA !🙌🏼 Hey beautiful people, welcome to the space. I'm Ewelina, a freelance Photographer & travel and nature lover, based in London. When I'm not planning my next trip or actually travelling, I work on photography/ marketing assignments. I also teach Hatha Yoga, which keeps me grounded in a big city. I'm super excited about this trip, as I feel there's something so deeply magical about the Canary Islands, and I know this journey will be a lasting memory.

Details about the accommodation: 🚋 This is a public transport trip, so it's important we stay as central to all the main transport links as possible. At the same time, I would like to avoid being surrounded by noisy hotel resorts and drunken tourists, so I will find a middle ground. So far, the accommodation is a traditional style villa, with 8 beds, and plenty of space to enjoy. Depending on the group size, this might change slightly, and we could move to a hostel/ hotel. The bottom line, this is not a luxury holiday accommodation, given our budget. And I want to spend the money we have on all the delicious food and sights available on the island. do you agree? I will be conduction a group zoom call before our departure to give you details of the trip and the house we'll be staying in. Please make sure to reach out, I'm here to answer any questions, or simply just to have a chat. xx Ewelina
