A New Year walking break on Tenerife

To pull out all the stops for a refined and classy New Year to remember, look no further than Tenerife’s finest rural hotel. The Hotel Spa Villalba, just a ten-minute walk above the village of Vilaflor, has rapidly become one of our favourite places to stay; and for a truly indulgent way to see in next year, its owners are planning a lavish celebration.
The highlight will be a black-tie reception and celebratory dinner on New Year’s Eve, with all drinks and entertainment included, and dancing into the early hours, but there is also a choice of some memorable walking routes, and time for luxuriating in the spa and gorgeous pool. So dig out your glad rags and prepare to party!

Walking & more

The key to Inntravel holidays is flexibility. You have a choice of start days, and are free to add extra nights. There’s no fixed itinerary, so take your pick of our suggested walking routes as the mood takes you.
  • The average maximum daytime temperatures and monthly rainfall relate to the nearest weather station and are intended as a guide only.

    On the slopes of El Teide, temperatures will be considerably cooler than those shown above. The best time for flowers is February and March.

  • Choice of routes: 9km or 14.5km
    From your pine-scented base, we suggest two local walking routes.

    Circular walk via Camino de Chasna: 14.5km, 5hrs 
    Head along the ancient 'Camino de Chasna' trail – once the main route connecting the spa town of Vilaflor with Mount Teide, and used extensively by explorers, scientists and well-heeled Victorians over-wintering on Tenerife on the advice of their physicians. Climbing above the village, you ascend to the surreal rock formations of Paisaje Lunar where, over half a million years, the elements have sculpted fantastical shapes from volcanic fallout to create a unique and fascinating landscape.

    Circular walk via vineyards: 9km, 3hrs
    This easier walk incorporates an opportunity to try some of the Hotel Villalba's award-winning wines. Trails through the pine forest lead to Vilaflor's wine country, where you traverse country lanes lined with vineyards and, in early spring, almond blossom. A short detour brings you to the Bodega Reverón, where you can take a tour before trying a selection of wines which are also available to buy.

  • Choice of routes: 4km or 14km
    Since you have chosen to come to the very heart of Tenerife for New Year, we suggest that, weather permitting, you take advantage of the wonderful walking opportunities on offer in the nearby National Park surrounding Spain’s highest peak. We provide notes for both a challenging and an easier (or bad-weather) option from the Parador at Las Cañadas, just half an hour’s drive from your hotel. 

    Circular walk to El Teide via cable car: 14km, 4.5hrs (plus detours to viewpoints)
    Follow a level route through the kaleidoscopic landscape of the Teide National Park to reach the cable car (pay locally) which will take you to within 200 metres of the very peak of the volcano. From the upper cable car station paths lead off to the north with views over the remaining north crater wall of Fortaleza and Montaña Blanca from where those wishing to climb to the peak begin their ascent. To the south, the path leads to the perfect crater of Pico Viejo, the lower of the two volcanic peaks, from where you can see the islands of La Gomera, La Palma and El Hierro on the horizon, as well as the southern coast of the island.

    If you wish to go to the summit of El Teide, you will need to obtain a free permit, available online in advance of your trip. Permits become available six months in advance, and are very popular, so we recommend reserving yours as soon as possible. The ascent to the peak takes an additional hour due to the altitude, which makes progress slow. (NB: In the event of heavy snowfall, which is not uncommon between November and February, the summit path will be closed, although the cable car may continue to run. The latter, however, does not operate in high winds, in which case it is impossible to access the peak.)

    Circular walk via Roques de García: 4km, 1.5hrs 
    This is a short but unforgettable walk past the various weird and wonderful rock formations of the Roques de García, including the shillelagh-shaped Roque Chinchado which used to grace the 1,000-peseta banknote. Many of these striking natural monuments resemble fingers pointing into the sky, and another looks like a cathedral, with several tower-like formations. 
    Around Roques de García
  • Celebrate in style
    Following a black-tie reception with canapés by the fireplace on New Year’s Eve, you will be treated to a refined, four-course meal in the restaurant, at which all drinks and entertainment are included (food, but not drinks, are also included on the other three evenings). After observing the Spanish tradition of consuming twelve ‘lucky grapes’ – one for each chime of the clock at midnight – music and dancing will continue into the early hours. The following day is almost as much of a treat: although a continental breakfast will be available to those who want it, you can choose to sleep off the night’s excesses if you wish before enjoying an early-afternoon brunch – a suitably leisurely way to begin the New Year.
