Horror Nights: what to do in Halloween in Tenerife
Mysteries, fun, fear, chills, spirits and magic. Join us for things to do on Halloween in Tenerife.
Nowadays we are always looking for parties, fun and Halloween activities in Tenerife, but the truth is that this tradition dates back hundreds of years to deepest Ireland. The Celtic peoples celebrated the end of summer and the harvest with a ceremony in which the spirits of the dead returned on this magical night to visit the real world.
On this festival, known as Samhain, they would dress up in costumes and light huge bonfires to ward off evil spirits. Among the various spectres that haunt Shamrock Island on Halloween are those that represent the four aspects of Samhain; light, darkness, mischief and change.
This tradition, like many others around the world, has evolved into a playful and festive one. The Irish, an emigrant people by nature, have spread the importance of this day to other regions of the world. Halloween is now a global holiday, with children and adults alike celebrating a tribute to mystery on the night of 31 October.
What to do on Halloween in Tenerife
The Canary Islands and Anglo-Saxon culture have been linked for decades. Five million British tourists visited the islands every year before the pandemic. This has meant that the Canary Islands have adopted Halloween as a tradition in recent years, demonstrating the acceptance and tolerance it has always shown towards all the cultures that visit us. Before the Christian festivities of All Saints’ Day and All Souls’ Day, both cultures mix on our island to combine tradition and multiculturalism in a few days of celebration and respect. There is a place for everything in our archipelago.
If you are on a trip for adults and your aim is to celebrate Halloween in Tenerife’s nightlife, the possibilities are endless. All the island’s trendy nightclubs hold special celebrations on this day. You will find terrifying decorations, costumes of all kinds and spirits to honour the most rebellious ghosts.
