Best things to do in Tenerife in June 2017: other activities

As we said almost two years ago, our excursion to Antequera with Anaga Experience was, and still is to this day, one of the best activities we have ever taken part in since we began writing our articles about Tenerife. Anaga Experience offers the full package: hiking, the beach, boat trips and, if you still have some energy left in the tank, a paddle board experience!

We had the opportunity to visit Siam Park, where we saw all the new attractions designed to get your adrenaline pumping. A visit to this water park would definitely be an extremely fun and unforgettable experience!

Are you an animal lover? If so, then Jungle Park is the ideal place for you. Visitors to the park get to see animals in a unique environment that is unlike any other in Europe. There are also three different shows, where the park’s birds and marine mammals show off their talents and qualities.

If you’re into golf then Tenerife is once again the ideal place for you. June marks the beginning of the sport’s low season on the island, which means that anyone can hone their skills in complete tranquillity – and for a good price! We recommend you check out Amarilla Golf, who have one of the best courses in the Canary Islands.

How many different modes of transport have you tried? Ever travelled by camel? Try something new with a visit to Camel Park, where you can get around as the island’s forefathers used to.

Speaking of transport … Have you ever thought about taking a ride in a helicopter? If so, Helidreams can make your dreams a reality.
