Luxury bespoke holidays and tours to Parador de las Canadas del Teide, Tenerife

The Parador de Las Cañadas del Teide is a simple mountain lodge in Tenerife with spectacular panoramic views of the volcanic cone of Mount Teide and the dynamic surrounding landscape. Every room at this country hotel has fantastic views, though the open air, clear skies, and sublime landscape can be more fully enjoyed from the open outdoor pool terrace. Best-suited to a short stay exploring natural phenomenon such as the Çhaorra Caldera and Montaña Blanca, this hotel appeals to those looking to escape the tourist spots and venture off-the-beaten-track. Far from urban lights, this Parador offers unrivalled access to the clear skies Tenerife is renowned for, for amazing stargazing sessions. The hotel's exterior is characterised by a blend of pink and ochre stucco, traditional stucco, and dark wood roofs, which really adds to the authentic rustic feel of the building. Inside this country hotel, the rustic lodge feel is continued, with simplistic designs and dark wood furniture. The rooms are large and airy, maintained to the very high standard associated with Parador properties, and have breath-taking views. The colour palette inside the Parador rooms echoes the natural tones found outside your window, but with flourishes of rich reds and tactile textures. The restaurant serves authentically Canarian cuisine, built around hearty flavours, local meats, and root vegetables. The combination of chic minimalist design blends seamlessly with the roaring stone fireplace to create a unique and charming ambience. Guests are also free to enjoy the warmth of the lounge, the comfort of the plush armchairs, and the characterful architectural features that run throughout. It is the latter of these attributes that really makes this hotel stand out, whilst complementing the sublimity of the stunning scenery. The outdoor pool terrace is optimally placed for serene relaxation, with the magnificent mountain backdrop and vast open air. We would recommend combining this idyllic spot with other Parador hotels on La Gomera, Las Palmas, and El Hierro, as part of a larger luxury tour of Tenerife and the Canary Islands.

About Canary Islands

An Expressions tailor-made holiday to the Canary Islands includes a selection of four and five star beach resorts which cater for families and couples alike. The Canary Islands can be found sitting off the western coast of Africa in the Atlantic Ocean. Warmed by year-round sunshine, the Canaries feature otherworldly landscapes of volcanic craters, lava deserts and cute coves with black-sand beaches. Meanwhile, steep hillsides and terraced farmland gives way to peaceful fishing villages and characterful old towns. In the west of the archipelago are the mountainous islands of Tenerife, La Palma, El Hierro and La Gomera. Expect black-sand beaches and buzzing resorts along Tenerife's coastline whilst the interior is dominated by the dormant Mount Teide volcano. Meanwhile the three smaller islands remain relatively unspoiled, with landscapes including terraced hillsides, craggy cliffs and subtropical rainforests. The eastern isles consist of Gran Canaria, Fuerteventura and Lanzarote, each with a unique atmosphere and plenty of attractions. Gran Canaria is home to sprawling resorts as well as stunning scenery with forests, mountains and sand dunes; Fuerteventura is an arid and sparsely populated island with a desert-like landscape and long stretches of white sand beaches; while Lanzarote is a rugged island where lava flows have solidified to create a lunar landscape which contrasts with sandy beaches and green valleys. Due to their location in the Atlantic Ocean just 60 miles away from the coast of Morocco, the Canary Islands' cultures fuse African, Latin American and European influences, creating a unique identity which is quite different to that of the Iberian Peninsula. Contrary to popular belief, there is no want for authenticity here....

Gastronomy of the Canary Islands

Due to the geographical location, gastronomy in the Canary Islands incorporates elements of Spanish, African and Latin American cuisine. A staple of Canarian cuisine is fish, which may be grilled, baked, salted or dried in the sun, along with shellfish which is also abundant. Bananas and tropical fruits are all grown across the islands, whilst rum, Malvasía wine and goat's cheeses are also produced. Key ingredients include ‘Gofio’ (cornmeal which is used in bread and stews), ‘Mojo’ (a sauce which contains either coriander or chili peppers and is frequently served with fish and meat) and ‘Papas arrugadas’ (a kind of jacket potato which is cooked in salt water). Typical dishes include ‘Sancocho’ (boiled fish served with potatoes), ‘Puchero canario’ (a hearty stew made with meat and vegetables) and ‘Bienmesabe’ (an almond cream dessert).

Climate of the Canary Islands

Winters are mild with average temperatures of around 17 degrees, whilst summers are warm with temperatures of around 24 degrees. Most of the islands are cooler and wetter in the northeast thanks to the trade winds which prevent the temperatures from getting too hot in the summer.
