Motorcycle Tours in Tenerife - the two-wheel option


Motorcycle Tours in Tenerife. For the more observant amongst you, I'd originally called this attraction "Tenerife Trial Tours". This is (or, maybe, was) the name of a company that offered guided tours, on motorcycle, around Tenerife, both on and off-road.

Unfortunately, the company with this name seems to have disappeared off the map. Their website (www.offonroadbikeholidays.com), apparently, no longer exists. I can't find it anyway.

But don't panic! There is another company offering guided tours on motorcycle.

CANARYMOTO

Situated in Adeje, near Playa de Fañabe, this company offers a variety of guided motorcycle tours. Here is an example of their 7-day tour:

Day 1

  • Arrival on Tenerife. All you need to do is report in to the CanaryMoto office and collect your bike.

Day 2

  • Departing from Adeje, the tour heads north up the western coast, taking in Guía de Isora, Tamaimo, Santiago del Teide, Buenavista del Norte and Garachico. It reaches as far as Punta de Teno - the island's most westerly point. The return trip detours to include Los Gigantes, then Playa San Juan and Callao Salvaje.

Day 3

  • Along the TF-1 motorway at first, exiting at Granadilla. The tour aims for Vilaflor then on through the Teide National Park. It continues down the La Orotava valley, past Puerto de la Cruz, San Juan de la Rambla, Santiago del Teide and Guia de Isora, back to the starting point.

Day 4

  • Free! Spend your time relaxing, sunbathing or sightseeing. There is a lunch laid on at a typical Canarian restaurant with organised minibus or taxi.

Day 5

  • A long motorway ride first, on TF-1, right up to Santa Cruz, carrying on beyond, to reach the northernmost point of the island. On the return, the tour moves inland, taking in the mountains of Anaga, Las Mercedes and La Esperanza. After a descent through the valley of Arico, the motorway is rejoined at Candelaria for the journey back.

Day 6

  • A trip that takes the old mountain road towards Santa Cruz. There is an ascent on this tour that is famous amongst bikers - "Los Loros". The ride takes you along the foot of Mount Teide, then returning on the TF-38, via Chio, to the CanaryMoto office.

Day 7

  • Not on the bikes! A trip out into the ocean on the Whale and Dolphin Cruise.

There is an optional extra trip to the neighbouring island of La Gomera. After a 35 minutes journey on the express ferry, the tour takes in Playa Santiago, the Valle Hermoso, Hermigua and El Cedro.


Prices

Basic 7-day tour: 1,499 euros (passengers 1,149 euros)
La Gomera extra tour: 189 euros (passenger 69 euros)
Room supplement for one person: 139 euros

If you think this is a little steep, please be aware that these prices are for a full motorcycle tours in Tenerife package and include seven nights, half-board, in a four-star hotel, seven meals, airport transfers, motorbike rental and the use of a tour guide.

There are also other, shorter tours available, on request.




If you want to organise your own motorcycle tours in Tenerife and just need a machine, CanaryMoto also rents out a selection of quality motorcycles, all less than 18 months old. They stock bikes from Kawasaki, BMW and Honda and hire prices per day range from 39 to 119 euros. Quite a big difference, but you get what you pay for. Top of the range is a Kawasaki 1400 GTR sports touring bike.
