Destination Snapshot – Tenerife
Our resident expert Jess Hall recently commented in the C&IT Incentive Travel report, speaking about what will influence buyers in 2017, and the trends we are likely to see for incentive travel. One thing’s for sure, Tenerife is enjoying a return to the top of the list for overseas conferences and a destination of choice to incentivise staff. Jess explains why Tenerife is a top choice for European events this year.
There’s more to the Island than meets the eye.
Tenerife is often seen as a party island – we certainly know the top spots to party into the early hours for the ultimate event finale, but we’ve also sought out the best spots to experience truly tranquil and picturesque beach scenes. The island boasts idyllic views, and offers the perfect location for those wishing to reward employees, or hold overseas conferences in perpetually glorious weather. Check out the views whilst trekking or biking up mountains, or take to the seas for water activities…
Activities in abundance
A recent client of ours recently requested both water based and land activities. We suggested paddle boarding, a challenge for the most well balanced and sporting individual, or dolphin and whale watching on board a luxury yacht with a champagne lunch for the more indulgent types. For thrill seekers, speed jet ski safaris are an option for the adrenaline junkies of any group! The spectacular volcanic landscape and mountainous terrain lends itself perfectly to high octane quad biking and off roading, or simply enjoying the stunning views of the coastline and surrounding islands by cable car or hot air balloon. Spanish wine, tapas, Tuna bands and flamenco in abundance provide the perfect cultural accompaniments.
All year round sun
It goes without saying that one of the main pulls for incentive travel is favourable weather, and Tenerife offers year round sun! Not to mention a fabulous choice of four and five star beach resorts with impressive meeting spaces to suit every budget, and then there’s the golf…..
Our recent client chose Tenerife over any other proposed destinations due to the opportunity for outdoor drinks receptions and alfresco dining. The fresh seafood on offer here can be enjoyed in stunning surroundings under bright blue skies, beachside or perhaps by Europe’s largest infinity pool seen below.
