Tenerife and the Canary Islands in general are a great destination. Is a holiday in Tenerife worthwhile in winter? Tenerife, thanks to its geographical location, maintains temperatures of up to 22 degrees from December to February. The Canary Island is therefore ideally suited as a winter destination. A special feature, despite these warm temperatures, is the ski resort of Pico del Teide. So from December to February, the warm temperatures can be enjoyed on the coast and you can go skiing anyway. This contrast makes Tenerife the absolute winter insider tip. To get the most out of your Tenerife trip, we recommend booking a cheap car hire at Tenerife Airport. Compare with Driveboo the offers for rental cars at Tenerife Airport to get the best deal.
