    Tenerife Anaga senderismo TENERIFE ▸Anaga: Through the pristine north

    Our driver will take you to the remote village of Afur, the starting point of this impressive route towards the rugged coast in the north of Tenerife. Gradually, the path descends along the edge of the gorge to the sea and opens up a marvellous panorama with the blue sea in the background. The vegetation now appears as scrubland, very different from the beginning of the route. The path reaches Tamadite beach and climbs again towards El Chorro through deserted terraces. Once in Taganana, the path heads south again, past La Cumbrecilla and back to Afur, from where we can return by bus (line 076) at 14:35 or 17:30.

    Tenerife - GR131 - Esperanza TENERIFE Taborno - Pico del Inglés - Santa Cruz   

    Today we discover the opposite side of Anaga, on a sunny descent to the capital, Santa Cruz de Tenerife. The bus (bus line 275) takes us to the hamlet of Taborno. From there we ascend to the Pico del Inglés (altitude 990 metres) and then begin a long descent towards the southern slope, in the direction of Valleseco. With spectacular views of Mount Teide, the path follows old paths as it descends, showing the most populated side of Tenerife, with the bustling port of Santa Cruz as its finish line. A route full of contrasts that allows us to enjoy both the rural atmosphere and the more cosmopolitan side of the island of Tenerife.

    El Hierro La maceta EL HIERRO El Golfo: the Lagartario and Punta Larga        

    Early morning transfer to Los Rodeos Airport for a 40-minute local flight to the island of El Hierro. On arrival in El Hierro, a taxi will pick you up to take you to the Lagartario and the Ecomuseo de Guinea, which are a must to understand the native fauna and the lifestyle of the island's first settlers. The Lagartario is a centre for the preservation and recovery of the giant lizard of El Hierro, in serious danger of extinction in the past and now fully recovered in the Roques de Salmor. The Ecomuseum of Guinea reflects the way of life of the primitive Spanish settlers after the occupation of the island, in their hard rural chores. The route to Las Puntas is easy and follows the coastline after the visit to the Lagartario. It is a gentle descent between inhabited areas and mango and banana plantations. Las Puntas is home to the smallest hotel in the world, according to Guinness World Records. A primitive jetty next to the hotel facilitates bathing for the more daring. The bar-restaurant offers a fantastic chill-out atmosphere with spectacular views of the bay. The path continues along the coast from Las Puntas to the natural pools of La Maceta. With a genuinely popular atmosphere, these busy natural pools offer unbeatable options for a final refreshing dip. At the agreed time, a taxi will pick you up to take you back to your hotel.

    senderismo en el hierro EL HIERRO The Jinama Way    

    Also known as the "Ruta de las Mudadas", not because of the absence of spoken language but because of the changes of residence that peasants made in the past on a temporary basis (they moved from one side of the island to the other using this route). From San Andrés, the path heads towards the cliff of El Golfo on a gentle ascent through green meadows. Leaving the Ermita de La Caridad behind, the path zigzags along the cliff in a long descent through a leafy path towards Frontera. In the final stretch, a few houses appear next to plots of farmland, with the peculiar shape of the Ermita de La Candelaria in front of you. After leaving Frontera, the path leads to the village of Los Llanillos, where the next accommodation is located.

    El Hierro GR131EL HIERRO The Carboneras Route   

    A deep dive into the lush laurel forests of El Hierro. Starting from Hoya del Pino, the trail climbs up to the Pico del Malpaso through a vast and dense Monteverde until it reaches the summit. From the top of Malpaso (1,502 metres above sea level) on clear days you can enjoy spectacular views of the island of La Palma and Pico del Teide on Tenerife. The path follows the route to the summit, beginning a slow descent that takes us to the Ermita de San Salvador hermitage. Here begins a zigzagging path that descends steeply until it reaches Frontera, the most representative locality of El Golfo.

    EL HIERRO Prime Meridian Path     

    The Prime Meridian Path starts at Mirador del Lomo Negro, after a short transfer. Shortly you will reach the well-known trees of impossible shapes that the relentless wind has shaped. The Ermita de Los Reyes is the most important place of pilgrimage for the people of El Hierro. The Patron Saint of the island motivates a secular procession every four years: the Bajada de La Virgen (Descent of the Virgin). The path descends towards the Orchilla Lighthouse, crossing enclosures where cattle graze in absolute freedom. The route ends in an exotic volcanic landscape in the extreme southwest, also known as the Prime Meridian. Mapped by Ptolemy in antiquity, it was considered the westernmost point of the known world. And it is here that today you will find the Orchilla Lighthouse and the surprising Cueva del Acantilado. A route that will reveal the enormous variety of landscapes of this tiny island, with multiple types of vegetation, contrasting colours and peculiar cultural features.
