Tenerife is known as the place of the eternal spring, because also in winter the average temperature is around 21°C. This is a real advantage compared to other places, although there is no homogeneous climate. What fascinates are the 20 climatic zones of the island, especially in winter, the contrasts can be observed. While you are at a point of the island enjoying the sunny sun, in another nearby point it can be completely cloudy and with low clouds, with “paunch of donkey”, as they call the canaries.

Thanks to its soft climate it is enough to take spring clothes, but we recommend to take a jacket if you find a few cold days.
