The best gift you can get? Jetting off to Tenerife for the winter to celebrate Christmas in 75 degree weather!
This potpourri of experiences includes tropical-forest walks and designer-shop struts, dark forays into volcanic lava, a sexy and sultry Carnaval celebration that’s second only to Rio, and a stash of museums, temples to modern art and creaky old colonial towns. But above all else, this is an island of drama, and nothing comes more dramatic than the snow-draped Pico del Teide, Spain’s tallest mountain and home to some of the most fabulous hiking in all the country.” From Lonely Planet
