The Best Things to do in Tenerife in November 2015

When we started to put together the list of things to do in Tenerife in November 2015 and the schedule of events on the island or the month, we were worried that perhaps there were not going to be many events to recommend. The surprise was great when we finished searching and realised that not only are there lots, but they are varied, which is a pleasure.

As we always point out to you, as well as the events, concerts and festivals which we believe might interest you this November in Tenerife we have chosen other activities which can be done in Tenerife throughout nearly the whole year.
