About Us

Daz Candid
Lavatrax Tenerife MTB started out in 2006. After a short break to Tenerife to visit family and having time to reflect on work and life in the UK I decided that enough was enough and that it was time to do something that I had long dreamt of and that would also give me more time with my family.

So after seeing a need in the market for a more flexible approach to mountain bike holidays we decided to make the break and start Lavatrax. The idea was that there must be lots of enthusiastic riders out there who would love to ride somewhere different, somewhere sunny, but just cannot justify the cost or time required for a solely mountain biking holiday. So we decided to offer a flexible approach where the whole family could benefit from a break in the sun whilst the biker of the family could still get to ride great trails in a new and different environment. The location had to be one that offered year round good weather and didn't have to wait for the ski season to end and the snow to melt before the bikers could return.

We looked at lots of different locations before coming back to the one right under our noses, the place that had kick started the whole process......Tenerife! We chose Tenerife as the ideal destination, with its temperate climate and the highest peak in Spain at its centre, good transport links and an established tourist industry, it ticked all of the boxes.
Whilst Lavatrax is a small business, we feel that this allows us to adapt to the needs of an ever changing marketplace. We are always ready to listen to your suggestions as to how we can improve our service to you through changing the way we do things or adding new services to our business. We always welcome your feedback as it is how we measure our success in making your holiday one to remember.Andrea

Following a silly crash in the off season of summer 2019 which resulted in rotator cuff damage, Darran took a bit of a back seat from the guiding putting Andrea in charge of guiding duties and all other aspects of things on the island. Over the course of the remainder of 2019 Andrea has become more involved in the daily running taking on the bookings and organisation too. Those of you who have ridden with Andrea already will have had a taste of his style, Italian ways and the enjoyment of a cerveza at the end of the ride.
