Tenerife may have a reputation for mass tourism but, as travelguru Jane Dunford discovers, there is far more to this unique island than the purpose built resorts on the south coast. This video explores the other side of the Tenerife, its volcanic origins and wealth of cultural and natural attractions.

Tenerife’s volcanic past influences almost every aspect of life on the island – most obviously in the landscape but also in the architecture, the cuisine and the culture. Highlights of an itinerary focusing on these aspects include the Anaga and Teno Rural parks, the unmissable Mount Teide National Park and the more traditional towns and villages of the north such as La Laguna, Oratava and Garachico. Each provides stunning backdrops for some unforgettable holiday experiences – Jane trys her hand at paragliding in the Oratava Valley, hiking in Teno Rural Park as well as diving and whale watching from the southern coast.
