20. – 27.7. – Teneriffa „English“

Hello to all of you,

Isn’t that great … feeling the warm sun again … spring is in the air.

Maybe that will make you think about planning your summer holidays.

There are still openings left in Los Christianos, Tenerife.

Once again we will journey to Tenerife (from July 20th to 27th, 2019) and enjoy the sun.

Fortunately it won’t become too hot on Tenerife even in July. You can relax in the shade and feel the light breeze.

We are very active organising and thinking about what to offerfollowing your information and suggestions. We are trying to find out if and how it COULD be possible to offer paragliding in the island’s north (near Puerto de la Cruz) for all the interested parties. Other ideas are: a boat trip, deep see fishing, test diving (probably) and shooting at a range in the mountains (probably)!

At the moment we are checking the various options and meet with some specialties of this island. For example it won’t be possible to do paragliding at the location we used in May 2 years ago as the thermal is only good there in spring and not in the summer. There are other locations more suitable for the summer …

As you can see there are lots of open questions and a lot of movement in the planning!

We are looking forward to meeting all of you who will come and we are sure that we’ll have a great time there.

All the best

We got the feedback from some of the participants that during our last come togetherthere were too many choices for some of us. That’s why we will change that for the next year.

We will check and see if and what it is doable in which way.
