On the first night, we’ll welcome you with drinks and tapas and give you an overview of what to expect for the coming days. You’ll also get settled into your accommodation. This will be in a lovely 1 bedroom self-catering apartment at Paloma Beach, Los Cristianos, the perfect spot to relax when you’re not walking.

In total, you’ll go on three guided hikes. These hikes will be of moderate-intensity and will last from 3 to 5½ hours. The distances covered will be between 8-15 km. There will also be some uphill stretches. 

As you walk, you will discover the varied flora and fauna on the island. This includes laurel and pine forests. You’ll also get some spectacular views (some from up high) of the sprawling countryside, barrancos (gorges) and the wonderful Mount Teide, an impressive volcano that sits at 3,718 meters above sea level. 

This trip offers a  fantastic way to explore the beautiful and abundant nature of the island while staying active in the outdoors. Get in touch today to secure your spot.

Itinerary

Day 1: Arrival

You’ll receive a welcome drinks reception with tapas. This provides us all with the opportunity to get acquainted and chat about the hiking to come.

Day 2 to 4: Your three guided hikes

Your guide will choose the most appropriate hikes according to the group preferences. These are some of the possible options:

Breathtaking Barrancos

Barrancos are gorges and on this hike you’ll get to discover some of them. These are beautiful to look at and are home to many endemic plants and flowers. They also carry centuries of history. This walk is easy to moderate. It’s around 8kms and should take us 3- 4 hours.

Amazing Anaga

The Anaga Mountains consist of remote coastline, ravines, laurel forests and villages. This area is also home to one of the most important specimens of laurel forest in the world. This walk is moderate to hard. We’ll cover around 15km over 5 hours. However, there are many hiking routes here so we can adapt according to the group’s preference. 

The Wow Factor Walk

This is an extremely satisfying hike. We’ll start out in the Canarian pine forest before entering the Teide National Park which will take us to the Caldera Rim at around 2550 meters. After we break for lunch, we’ll continue along a stunning trail till we reach our end point. This hike covers around 12 km in total over 5 hours. It is moderately hard.

Masca from above 

This one is a stunning alpine hike. We’ll follow mountain ridges that give us exceptional views of the laurel forest. We’ll then descend and explore the subtropical rainforest. After that the countryside will open up before us. As we hike we’ll be looking down on the Masca gorge and more fantastic volcanic terrain. We’ll finish up with a section through pine forest and pretty countryside. This hike covers around 12 km in total over 4.5 hours. It is moderately difficult. 

Mount Guajara

We’ll ascend Tenerife’s 3rd highest peak along the north face. The views are awesome along the way. Then from the summit we’ll explore the ruins of one of the  first high altitude observatories ever to be built. We’ll then descend enjoying coastal views as we go. This is a difficult walk. The distance is around 10 km and it’ll take us 5 hours in total.
