Details

Get your swimming race ready in style with a triathlon camp on the beautiful volcanic island of Tenerife. With its breathtaking landscapes and enviable climate, Tenerife is the largest of the seven main islands which make up the Spanish archipelago of the Canary Islands, just 100 km off the coast of Morocco.

Our autumn camps start your pre-season training in style with a skill development camp, while spring camps are ideally timed to get you race ready. Our focus is on stroke improvement, open water skills and longer swims, to build endurance or speed. Our camps will help you build your swimming performance to the highest standard, where stroke improvement and building endurance and speed is our focus. Your sessions at the state-of-the-art sports complex, Tenerife Top Training (T3), includes swim coaching in the open-air 50-metre pool, as well as comprehensive technique advice and video playback in T3’s fantastic glass walled swimming flume.

Based at the Hovima Jardin Caleta hotel in La Caleta, the trip’s open water swims take place in the relatively calm waters of Tenerife’s picturesque south-west coast, however the nature of ocean swimming here means that water conditions can vary considerably from one day to the next.

 

TOUR HIGHLIGHTS:

- Benefit from professional swim specific coaching for multi-sport athletes
- Mix circuit coaching swims and longer coastal swims for endurance & enjoymen
- Learn from video analysis in the amazing flume at the Tenerife Top Training facility
