Escape from the rigours of the British winter for a week of music-making in the sub-tropical Canary Islands. We return to Tenerife in January for our second festival, staying at the splendid Hotel Botanico surrounded by lush gardens in Puerto del la Cruz. We will present a series of concerts in the hotel as well as in the nearby Casa Abaco, a grand 18th century Canarian mansion. Mass tourism is confined to an area far away from where we will be staying and our tour will show you the island’s unspoilt volcanic landscape, well-preserved colonial villages and lush gardens. A visit to the Mount Teide National Park is one of the highlights of a fascinating week, and includes a ride by cable car to the volcano’s 12,000ft peak.

In addition to our programme of concerts there will be a number of sightseeing excursions throughout the island. We will visit the Botanic Garden located just across from the hotel and then go to the Sitio Litro Orchid Garden where more than three hundred varieties of orchid can be seen. Another excursion will visit Mount Teide National Park – from the summit there are views out to the neighbouring island of Gran Canaria. There will be a drive along the spectacular north coast route to Maca, a tiny village clinging to a steep ravine and to Garachico with its 17th century Franciscan convent. A sleepy, picturesque village today, Garachico was once the most important port on the island. A half-day tour to the wild Anaga Mountains with their mysterious and primeval cloud forest will complete the programme. Visits to Santa Cruz, La Laguna and Oratava can be made easily by local bus services or taxi.
