Plan your trip to Tenerife
If you are travelling by plane:
Tenerife has two international airports with direct connections to 142 airports in 29 countries, including the United States, Venezuela and Morocco.
Tenerife-Sur or Reina Sofía airport in Granadilla de Abona is the seventh largest airport in Spain in terms of passenger numbers. Arriving on the island via Tenerife-South Airport is a convenient option for participants who choose to stay in the south of the island or those who prefer to be close to the start for the Tenerife Bluetrail 100M, which will begin at Los Cristianos beach in the municipality of Arona.
In addition, the island has another airport very close to the metropolitan area, Tenerife-Norte in San Cristóbal de La Laguna, which concentrates inter-island traffic in particular, as well as regular national and international flights.
It is the closest airport to Puerto de la Cruz, where the finish line of all race categories is located. It is also the closest airport to Santa Cruz de la Tenerife, the island's capital.
Communication from the airports to the different municipalities of the island or to those from where the different modalities of the Tenerife Bluetrail start must be done in combination with road transport: public transport, by guagua (bus), taxi or private transport.
IF YOU ARE TRAVELLING BY BOAT:
The shipping lines linking Tenerife with the islands of La Gomera, El Hierro and La Palma depart mainly from the port of Los Cristianos, in the south of the island, and the lines linking the island with Gran Canaria and the Iberian Peninsula, as well as all cruise traffic, depart from the port of Santa Cruz de Tenerife in the north of the island.
Fred. Olsen Express, official collaborator of the trail race, offers the 'Sport fare', an additional 15% discount that the shipping company has been applying to runners for several years. It is already available on the usual sales channels of the maritime company for trips between June 5th and 10th. If you travel from any of the other islands, you can benefit from it: the only essential condition is that at least one member of the reservation is registered for the race.
HERE you can find more information about the ports of Tenerife.
