Why is Tenerife a great place for paragliding?
Tenerife is an island that has experienced many volcanic eruptions throughout its history. This has led to the formation of rugged terrain, but with high mountains, peaks and hills that form semi-circular basins in the central structure of the area.
These geological structures, positioned and modified over the years, eventually provided an ideal design for mountaineers, hikers, climbers and, of course, many paragliders.
The usual routes for paragliding in Tenerife pass through the Teide National Park, where the Teide volcano is located, at an altitude of over 3,500 metres.
There are also the Ifonche, Taucho and Ifonche Perfo areas, a series of gorges ideal for paragliding and excursions in the southern part of the island.
Tenerife in Santa Cruz seems to have been designed to take advantage of nature, but make no mistake do not exploit it viciously; these natural monuments are well protected and it is ideal to take care of the areas that give us this irreplaceable experience.
