GuiaNatura EcoTourism's activities

Sports and nature

On the islands of the eternal spring, you can practice outdoor activities during the 12 months of the year. Then, the Canary Islands are a breeding ground for activities in forest, sea, ravine or mountain, ideal for hyperactive people.

Tenerife is the most diverse of all and this is where we offer many activities. You can also contact us for other islands of the archipelago.

Birdwatching

The observation of wild birds is an activity suitable for quiet people or those who need to relax. We offer this opportunity to professional people, amateurs or beginners.

We go with you from the place you are staying to the spot where we will see the birds we have chosen together. From the sea level to the peaks, surprises await you.

What birds could you see?
Depending on your interest, we can focus your visit on specific species or make the most of the opportunity to discover various environments of the island and the birds that can be found there, with special emphasis on endemic birds - exclusive to the islands and that you will only see here.

Whalewatching

Whalewatching is an activity full of surprises and joy. We go sailing to see the marine fauna and, sometimes, we are surprised to find and know the amount species that are in our seas. We go out with you on board of a ship with a reduced number of people. We chose collaborators from all the islands who, not only comply with current regulations, but also actively participate in the conservation of the species.
