Tenerife Rafting Bike

Knowing how mountainous Tenerife is, going on any activity that involves bikes might not be the first thing that springs to the mind of any but the fittest of holiday makers but that is only because they have never heard of Rafting Bike. Enjoy all the exhilaration of a downhill bike ride – with none of the uphill effort. You are collected by mini-bus and transported to the foot of Mount Teide and from there you freewheel all the way back down again to Los Cristianos or Golf Del Sur with frequent stops for refreshments and photo opportunities.
You will be on surfaced roads and going at a moderate speed at all times and this activity is really safe for all. The friendly guides seem to enjoy the day as much as the first-time bike rafters which says a lot considering how often they must make this trip. There is probably no more enjoyable way to see this side of Tenerife than sailing downhill with the wind in your hair and given that this is not an overly physical or dangerous activity it is open to just about everybody.

Kids Can Enjoy Rafting Bike Too

Infants up to 20kg can ride in a baby seat on the back of Mum or Dad’s bike while kids of 9 can usually handle their own bike (depending on the child’s ability and common sense). In between the ages of 4 to 9, kids can accompany you by riding alongside in the support vehicle which stays with you down the mountain-side.

Great day out and easy enough for all abilities. We have just returned from a week in Tenerife where we went bike rafting. Now, I don’t like exercise but this was a freewheel ride from about 2500m above sea level down to the sea. Took us about 2 and a half hours. Hardly any pedalling just a lot of braking. The guys picked us up from our hotel and then drove us all the way to the edge of the crater. Then we got sorted with bike helmets and reflective jackets. We had a lead cyclist and a backup vehicle. After a few tips on road rules and what the team does to allow passing vehicles, we were off. There were 14 of us – Dutch, English, German and Russian. We had a couple of drinks stops and the guys gave us some tapas half way down. Mary Beresford Jones
