    Hiking Tenerife ESENCIAL

    trekking tenerife Tenerife is one of the greatest paradises for hiking. Tenerife’s trekking routes are recognised by experienced hikers as very versatile, spectacular and perhaps even demanding.

    It is also one of the very few places in the world that has the luxury of having all the climates of the world in such a small area. In a single day we can hike the snow-capped peaks of El Teide and walk along a coastal cliff with dreamlike views.

    Winter, summer, spring or autumn, the island is definitely a dream for any hiker regardless of their level of experience and skill.
    We have routes that range from the gentlest of complex family-friendly hikes with little gradient and idyllic scenery to the steepest of gorges that only the most expert hikers dare to cross.

    Streams, waterfalls, crags, cliffs and perfect beaches that escape the mass Ruta de senderismo en Masca con el Cardon tourism packages mass tourism packages that are only accessible via the most beautiful routes on the planet.

    The island is a melting pot of climates, soils and vegetation. You can wander from the desert panorama of volcanic calderas with rugged and rustic landscapes to the most fertile valleys populated by the mythical Canary Island pine.
    Snowy paths and icy crags that outline alpine landscapes that combine with the warm trails of the coast combined with the view of the stone rocks that guard the passage of walkers.

      Chamorga is a village located at the northern end of the Parque Rural de Anaga, a protected natural area of great botanical interest, at the end of the TF-123 road.
      The route starts where the Bar Casa Alvaro is located and continues along the Tafada path towards the mountain of the same name.  From this mountain, the path descends towards the Lighthouse of Anaga and finally reaches a picturesque fishing enclave called Roque Bermejo. After an obligatory pause, the path starts its ascent towards Casas Blancas through the Barranco de Roque Bermejo ravine to return to Chamorga.

      The fascinating landscape of its Malpaís captivates from the first moment. It is an authentic treasure of great ecological importance that was declared protected area in 1987. Today, this Special Nature Reserve has a unique volcanic landscape that occupies a large valley in the southeast of Tenerife, from the Montaña Grande to the coast.

      The Circular Path of Guajara starts from the Parador Nacional to reach the summit of the third highest peak of Tenerife. It is undoubtedly the most spectacular viewpoint towards the Pico Viejo and the summit of the Teide.

A dreamlike landscape that reaches its climax after going around "Montaña Bermeja". There, abruptly, rise an endless number of minarets and towers of a light reddish tone and volcanic origin, whose erosion has been shaped by the passage of time. It is undoubtedly one of Tenerife's greatest natural wonders.

      ACCOMMODATION

      Subject to availability:

      Finca Salamanca Hotel Rural

      HOTEL RURAL FINCA SALAMANCA

      This accommodation is set in the surroundings of an extensive farm of avocado trees and other tropical fruits.

      Güimar, a town in the northeast of Tenerife, is a municipality with an ancient agricultural tradition that is timidly opening up to tourism with this type of rural accommodation.

      The Hotel Rural Finca Salamanca offers all the services and comforts that are typical of an accommodation of these characteristics, in a wonderful setting surrounded by plants and flowers of all kinds.

      With spacious rooms designed with care and elegance, harmoniously integrated in a landscaped environment where large centenary trees survive today among the avocado plantation.

       

      The hotel's main dining room is located in an old barn that has been exquisitely decorated in the style of traditional farm implements. In an adjoining space in the form of a pergola we find the second dining room to enjoy breakfasts in the open air.

      HOTEL & SPA EL TEJAR

      Vilaflor, located in the foothills of Mount Teide at 1,400 metres above sea level, is the highest village in Spain. In this high mountain setting is the Hotel & Spa El Tejar, a small family-run hotel with a warm welcome and exquisite service. The treatment is meticulous and the sensation of feeling "at home" persists throughout your stay.

       

      The 14 rooms of the hotel are warm and very comfortable, traditionally decorated with no detail missing. The hotel is ideally situated in an oasis of peace and tranquillity where absolute silence reigns supreme at night.

       

       

       

      But in the lounge you can't miss a pleasant wood-burning fireplace that will keep the coldest nights warm. Although the sun usually presides intensely the daily hours in an enclave located above the clouds, on the south side of the island of Tenerife.

       

      HOTEL RURAL GARA

      The intricate streets of Garachico are lined with old palatial mansions that survived the eruption of 1706. It is in these surroundings that we find the Hotel Rural Gara, an old traditional Canarian building, beautifully restored and facing the infinite ocean.

       

       

      From its roof terrace, now converted into a breakfast area, you can enjoy an uninterrupted view of the sea overlooking the small town of Garachico. In the area surrounding the hotel you will find natural swimming pools and a genuine local atmosphere, as well as many terraces, restaurants and small tapas bars.

       

      The rooms of the Hotel Rural Gara maintain the traditional tone of the building but add all kinds of comforts, typical of this type of accommodation. Garachico, located at sea level, is an ideal place to enjoy the last nights in Tenerife.

Although most of this trail is roomy enough, certain sections are quite aerial and require caution. Using hiking poles is highly recommended.
