  • Marvel at the gorgeous landscape of the island from Vilaflor.


Hiking in Tenerife, in the Canary Islands of Spain is an incredible experience. And, on this trip, I would like to guide you on the popular and gorgeous Sun Hat hike.

The Sun Hat hike will take you from Vilaflor up into the clouds. From the perched location you will get to see what will seem like the entire island. You will get to see the gorgeous natural landscape that seems to go on forever, and you will even get to gaze upon the gorgeous Pico del Teide (3,718m), which is affectionately called Papa Teide by locals of the island, from a viewpoint that rests at an altitude of approximately 2,500 meters, along the crater rim.

The Sun Hat hike is not very difficult. We will be walking for approximately 3 to 4 hours, and covering a distance of approximately 7 kilometers. Our elevation will be approximately 500 meters uphill and downhill. As a result, it is important that participants on this trip are in good physical condition.

The Sun Hat hike is a definite highlight of any visit you may be making to Tenerife. To join me on this wonderful trek, please send a request.

Would you like to do some mountain biking through the volcanoes of Tenerife? Then come and join me on this trip through the Arenas Negras.

About the Guide


Biking is my passion. I am a qualified bicycle mechanic from the north of Germany and I have been working as a bike and hiking guide on the Canary Islands since 2004. I am familiar with the local bike scene and I know the best trails in the islands. I also participate on local downhill and enduro races.

As a specialist in XC and Enduro/Freeride tours and MIAS Mountain-Bike Instructor, I offer local knowledge, a rich experience and profound technical abilities on my tours. All participants get individual advice and specific information on dynamical conditions in order to master the challenging routes self-confidently and having fun. Pure adrenaline!

By the way, I can also take you to experience Canarian cuisine and to discover amazing details about the local history and the peculiarities of the eco system in the Canary Islands.
