Deciding when to visit Tenerife depends on what you want to get out of your holiday. You'll be treated to good weather all year round, but the island's geography means the climate can change depending on where you are. If you're wondering what's the best time of year to visit Tenerife, we've looked at the benefits of all four seasons to help you decide. One easy decision you have is to book your airport transfers with Holiday Extras before you fly.

It's said that it's always spring in Tenerife. The weather is warm and the cooling trade winds mean it's not unbearable. This time of year is perfect for exploring mountain areas – it's not too hot to hike. Lots of tour groups will take you up Mount Teide where there are beautiful views of Tenerife and other islands in the archipelago.
For the hottest temperatures in the year, visit Tenerife in summer. Average temperatures are about 25 °C which makes it perfect for spending time sunbathing on one of the local beaches and cooling off by wading into the warm waters. It's also a great time to try watersports like jet skiing or diving. This works for keeping you from overheating and it's a unique new experience to enjoy too!
The average autumn temperature in Tenerife is about 23°C. September-November are good months to take in some local tours. A historical afternoon excursion is a perfect way to see the area and you (hopefully) won't get overheated. Other choices are boat tours to the surrounding islands, or you can hop on an open-top bus for a real tourist experience.
Winter in Tenerife is an intriguing time of year. Because of the area's generally warm climate and mountainous landscape, visitors can enjoy spring-like temperatures by the sea, while the surrounding peaks are dusted with snow. For a full range of seasons in one day, spend the morning hiking in the mountains, then warm back up again with a swim and some sunbathing.
To make your holiday as hassle-free as possible, we offer Tenerife airport transfers to a host of popular resorts and hotels. Our vehicle options range from private cars, private shuttles to shared shuttles. Your driver will meet you at the airport and transport you quickly and reliably to your resort, come rain or shine.
