    The island of El Hierro is one of the wonderful natural treasures our planet has to offer.  An idyllic hiker’s paradise with varied vegetation, volcanoes, hills, it has been declared an Atlantic Biosphere Reserve. An Eden where we can walk through different climatic zones on a single route.

    The coasts, the picturesque villages and the magnificent sunsets offer unique postcard motifs.

    Lush forests of tree heath and gale trees, laurel forests, through which the cool trade winds pass with enough moisture to create a green oasis.

    The starry sky over El Hierro, the vastness, the tranquillity and the scenic contrasts are further characteristics of this small island in the Atlantic. The hospitality of the inhabitants gives us a feeling of security.

    Old hiking trails lead us across the changing geography of El Hierro. Beautiful panoramas over the island await us on the edge of the gulf crater, certainly one of the highlights on our trip and a moment that will remain in our memories.

    Jinama viewpoint - La Albarrada and El Garoé

    Boque de laurisilvaFrom the hotel, this circular route takes you up the trail PR EH 2.3 towards the Mirador de Jinama, through a lush forest of fayas and heather. The path converges with the GR131, a path that is also known as the "Camino de la Virgen" due to the four-year pilgrimage.
    The ascent takes us to the Mirador de Fireba, located 1,350 meters above the sea and part of an old volcanic crater. From there the view is great, enjoying an immense perspective towards the neighboring islands of Tenerife and La Palma.
    After the well-deserved rest due to the exhausting ascent, a constant descent continues through the PR EH 2 trail, crossing the Hoya de Carboneros on its way back to Valverde. It is a circular route along a very panoramic path that evokes the movement of the ancient locals when they moved their cattle in search of the best pastures on the island.

    Camino El Pinar - El Tacorón

    Sur oeste de El HIerroA short 20-minute taxi ride will take you to El Pinar where you can leave your luggage at the next accommodation. And today your route will take you through the impressive volcanic landscape of the south. It is a route in permanent descent from the southern and sunny town of El Pinar, located 800 meters above the sea.
    After the obligatory coffee at the bar in the square, Calle La Paz heads downhill, converging with Calle La Hoya. And walking through these streets you will penetrate the magnificent volcanic environment around El Pinar, starting a permanent downhill that ends at El Tacorón Beach.
    Next to this small paradisiacal-looking beach is the Devil's Cave, which is well worth a visit. After a well-deserved swim, the taxi will take you back to El Pinar.

    Sabinosa - Virgin of Los Reyes Hermitage

    Sabinar El HierroToday the taxi will take you to the Hermitage of the Virgen de Los Reyes. An enclave in the west permanently whipped by a fierce wind. And the starting point of a peculiar pilgrimage that takes place every 4 years. The twisted junipers of impossible shapes make up a magical setting along which the trail runs towards the Mirador de Bascos.
    Once we reach the Mirador de Bascos, a spectacular perspective opens up over El Golfo, from West to East, with the island of La Palma silhouetted on the horizon. And under our feet, the idyllic town of Sabinosa.
    Now the path zigzags along the cliff towards the sea, until reaching Sabinosa, the end point of this route. The transfer to Frontera will be by bus (line 12, every 3 hours) or by taxi if your arrival time does not coincide.
