New Year's boat trip

Another special way to have yourself an unforgettable New Year's Eve in style is a boat trip.

Besides, you can also rent a private yacht or a sailing boat and plan your very personal celebration.

New Year's Day on a beach

If you pick Tenerife for your New Year's Eve, the prime reason must be its amiable temperatures averaging around 73 °F (23 °C).

Let yourself relax and soak up the sun after the exhausting night of New Years celebrations.

Winter fun on Mount Teide

Those who don't feel like missing out on classical winter magic and a true spirit of New Year might look for a touch of snow on Mount Teide, the highest peak in Tenerife and Spain overall. You can go in for ski and sled sessions or have a good snowball fight there.

Three King's Day

If you stay longer until January 6, you can also experience a colorful tradition of the Three King's Day, much anticipated by all local kids. The festivities begin when the kings arrive by helicopter at the Heliodoro Rodríguez López stadium. The parade, called "cabalgata", advances throughout Santa Cruz at 7 pm, and the merriments continue with singing, dancing, and gift-giving at night.
