Pyramides, volcano, hiking, snorkeling and whale watching - Tenerife adventure

  • Mar 6, 2014 · 7:00 AM


I don't know about you, but there is a limit to how much cold and miserable UK weather I can take. And while it is great to make the most of the winter sports and while skiing and snowboarding are fun, at some point we just need to get away from the snow and look for the summer. 

With the highs of 20 centigrades in March Tenerife will be an excellent place to get first sun rays. While UK's temperature will be still nearing zero, we will hopefully be able to sport sun kissed skin our return... 


What will we do? 

Snorkeling and whale watching are the main highlights of the trip. We will also visit the National Park of the Volcano Mount Teide and another small island known for its natural beauty: Gomera. We will also have some time to visit the local market, however if you are not up for it you can spend this time at the beach instead. 

Accommodation:

3-4 people appartments only 5 minutes walk from Playa de las Vistas (one of the greatest sandy beach in Tenerife). If you would like a single room it may be possible at the premium (please let me know you are interested and depending on the amount of people we have I will try to accommodate it).

What's included3 nigths accommodation, trip to another island (Gomera), boat ride, hiking, whale  dolphins watching, snorkeling, visit to a natural park of a volcano Mount Teide, airport transfers.  

What's excluded: food and drinks, optional excursions, cable car

Deposit: of £100 (+paypal fees) needs to be paid on RSVP to secure your place. Please note, until the deposit is paid your place is not confirmed. 

The final payments have to be in my account two weeks before the trip the latest. Please put this date in your diary now as no reminders will be sent and if you have not paid by then you will be removed from the trip and your deposit will not be refunded. Bank account details to pay the balance can be found here: http://www.meetup.com/Curious-Kat-Adventure-Club/pages/Bank_account/. Please make sure you account for the paypal fees in your calculations (so the £3.70 on top of £100 deposit should not be deducted from the reminder of the payment) 

IMPORTANT: By signing up to this trip you have agreed to the following disclaimer: 

'While safety is our top priority and although we never take unnecessary risks, we do recognise that any outdoor activity/trip involves a danger of personal injury or death. Remember that you should be aware of and accept these risks as you are responsible for your own safety and you should not undertake anything beyond your abilities. It is also your responsibility to be correctly equipped for the weather and activity you have chosen to participate in.' The organiser only facilitates the group, and doesn't take responsibility for your safety during the trip.

INSURANCE:

You also confirm that you will be responsible for your own insurance and make sure that it is at an appropriate level for this trip and activities you will be participating in (if in doubt, check with your insurance provider). 

BAD WEATHER: 

With all the crazy stuff happening with the weather recently, please note that we may be prevented from doing some of activities due to unpredictable weather events. If this is the case replacement activities will be offered.  



Weather lowdown 

In March, when the spring season is just around the corner, the average temperature is 17°C, with highs of 20°C being common. The daily sunshine hours and average days of rainfall are the same as February, 9 and 11, respectively. The sea temperature stands at 19°C, which when combined with the increased temperature makes it a great time for enjoying a swim in the sea.

      We have to find alternative ways them. Facebook would be much easier :-)

    BTW: I know that some of you have records of our favourite guide, Pearl. (for example Kat, Isil, Hash)
    Please send me the video or share it on your facebook or here. I really would like to have video of Pearl to keep the memory of his "impressive" personality and talking style alive even for the next generation :-)

    I was wondering if I should pack my hiking boots or can I manage with my normal boots?

    March 5, 2014

    • Kat

      The trails are closed due to snow, so we won't be doing much hiking - just a bit of walking here and there. Normal boots will be fine. :)

    Hi Kat,
    Do I have to bring towel and toiletries or are they provided by the apartments? I guess that they will provide bedclothes but please confirm this too just to be sure.
    Is there anything else I should know about or I should bring with me?
    How about snorkelling equipments? Will they be provided?
    Is there a meeting point where we meet up at Gatwick airport on the 6th March?
    Will you send out e-mail with further details?
    Thanks,

    February 28, 2014

    • Kat

      Hi Niobe, apologies for a late reply, I was just with the trip in Venice, only just got back home now. I will look into this for you tomorrow and I wille be sending a more detailed plan with all the addresses by Wednesday.

      March 2, 2014

    • Niobe

      Hi Kat. Thank you for your response and the detailed emails. Could you please give me your mobile number so that I can call you if I cannot find the meeting point at Tenerife airport?

    Hi Kat, is it too late for me to join this trip?x

    March 1, 2014

    • Kat

      Hi Katherine, I'm afraid it may be too late to join now as all the final payments had to be made 2 weeks before the trip - so that I could confirm the places booked or cancel the reservations.

  • Carol

    Hi kat - just a quick question this sounds like a great trip is there a minimum age limit for attendees or is it 18+ only :D

    February 20, 2014

    • Kat

      Hi Carol, yes the trips (as all the events in the group) are for adults only - there are completely different regulations that relate to children that I would not be able to accommodate.
