Welcome to Lavatrax, the place for Mountain Bike Holidays on the island of Tenerife
Bienvenido a Lavatrax, el lugar para vacaciones en bicicleta de montaña en la isla de Tenerife
Willkommen in Lavatrax, den Ort für Mountainbike Urlaub auf der Insel Teneriffa
Bringing you the best trails since 2006
Here you will find all the information you need to plan and make the most of your holiday here, whether that is a mountain bike specific holiday or just cramming a day or two of mountain biking into your family holiday.
Tenerife is the largest of the seven Canary Islands which are located just off the coast of Africa and a few degrees north of the Tropic of Cancer. This location pretty much guarantees year round sunshine to our visitors, giving you a taste of dry dusty mountain bike trails all year round.
Here at Lavatrax we stick to what we know best, the riding, so we don't manage or operate any holiday accommodation ourselves. However, we can make recommendations for you of various self catering apartment operators, B&B's Hostels and Hotels. By using our local knowledge and contacts we are able to offer 1 week mountain biking and accommodation from only 335 Euros per person per week.
We also realise that not everyone enjoys the luxury of being able to take a dedicated Mountain Bike Holiday, so we still offer the opportunity for riders to enjoy a day or two riding our incredible trails as part of their family beach hoilday. We have a small fleet of top quality hire bikes, all full suspension to make this option as easy as possible. Just take a look at our itinerary and book as few or as many days as you would like.
What type of mountain bike trails do we have in Tenerife and why should I go mountain biking in Tenerife?
Tenerife is a relatively undiscovered gem for mountain bikers. The many trails offer a real feeling of wilderness mountain biking in a foreign land whilst being only a short flight (around 4 hours) from most of europe.
The trails on offer are a real mix with relatively easy jeep tracks suitable for new riders into ultra technical rocky single tracks for the enduro experts out there. What we don't have are rolling hills, flat trails and meadows, so if you don't like a climb or a long descent then Tenerife possibly isn't the mountain biking destination for you. But if you long for tough climbs or 30 kilometre descents then what are you waiting for! Mountain biking in Tenerife will almost definately see you returning to your regular home trails as a better rider, with challenges on the trails which can help to improve your riding and confidence.
We have separated our rides into two distinct styles to help you choose the right package for your riding style and ability, with the longer and less technically demanding rides being found under the banner of XC or Cross Country and the more technically demanding rides being found under our Enduro heading. Our weekly schedule is usually made up of Enduro rides, but please ask if you'd prefer XC and we will do our best to accommodate you.
So whatever you are looking for, from a single days guided mountain biking to a full weeks guided and supported riding, please feel free to contact us for more details. While you are here, why not take a look at our guest book and see the feedback from our many satisfied customers. We look forward to showing you around this island of contrasts very soon! Mountain Biking in Tenerife really is the year round haven from the cold, rain and mud that you have been looking for!
Kingdom Bike Test Centre
Lavatrax Tenerife is now a test centre for Kingdom Bike, offering you the chance to try out their Hex All Mountain / Enduro superbike.
