From Tazirga we promote activities in connection with nature and society.

Environmental sustainability in Tenerife

Initially, Tazirga was born with the objective of spreading the word about natural resources. The main purpose is, in addition to the leisure and enjoyment of the experience, is to love them. Because when someone knows the importance of an environment, that is the moment when they begin to protect it.

Sustainable mobility in Tenerife

For this reason we promote routes taking advantage of the island’s public transportation. This reduces the number of vehicles and the pollution generated by them. From the website of TITSA (Transporte Interurbano de Tenerife, Sociedad Anónima) you can check the schedules and lines of the island of Tenerife.

The route of “Ellas entre lino y vino” starts at the bus station of La Laguna.

The route of “Ellas y los altos de Tenerife” begins with the arrival of the bus to Vilaflor from Los Cristianos.

Sustainable community in Tenerife

In addition, almost all of our routes offer the possibility to interact with the local population:

  • There is always the option of eating local food in family restaurants.
  • Visit to farms to learn about organic and traditional agriculture
  • We know cheese dairies, wineries, bakeries, etc. that continue to pass on their traditions.
  • Craftswomen explain their work while maintaining their culture


“Think global, act local”.

Finally, it is always up to you to collaborate with these communities. Involvement in sustainability is a joint task. Because with small contributions, we achieve great actions.
