    Day 2

    1st Stage - La Esperanza - Caldera de Aguamansa

    The first stage of the GR 131 requires you to get up early and start the route before the sun rises. A short 15-minute drive will take you to La Esperanza, a village at an altitude of 900 metres above sea level.
    ] After crossing the Bosque del Adelantado and following the Grano de Oro street, the Rayo track and then the Las Barranqueras track take you to Cruz de Fune. And from there the road alternates between forest tracks and paths until you reach the rest area of Siete Fuentes.
    ] It is from Las Lagunetas that a continuous ascent begins, bordering ravines.  The path will reach the highest peaks (1800 metres above sea level) to start a new descent among the shadows of the pine forest and spectacular views to the Valle de La Orotava.
    After leaving behind the Corona Forestal Natural Park, the trail starts a relentless descent towards the Portillo del Topo, reaching the La Caldera Recreational Area, near Aguamansa. From there, a taxi will take you to the village of La Orotava, where you can spend the night and recover your energy for the next stage.

    2nd Stage - La Caldera - Parador de Las Cañadas

    The former Camino Real de Chasna marks the route of the current GR 131 to Las Siete Cañadas del Teid. From the area of La Caldera there is a spectacular panoramic view over the whole of the Valle de la Orotava as we start our route.
    ] The path goes through a leafy pine forest up to the Cruz del Dornajito Fountain, crossing the Aguamansa Canal several times. It is from here that the old Camino de Chasna begins a relentless ascent to the top of Las Cañadas. Bordering the Barranco de Guamasa in its final stretch, the path reaches El Portillo and begins the path of Las Siete Cañadas, in the direction of the Montaña de Guajara.
    ] Las Siete Cañadas del Teide offer a singular landscape of endemic flora, crossing the whole cirque that forms Las Cañadas in its base. In the route there are peculiar formations of volcanic origin such as La Papelera and El Palomar, as well as ancient settlements of Guanche origin.
    The last stretch of the GR 131 in this second stage is the track of Las Siete Cañadas, which runs along the southern part, with the imposing view of the Montaña de Guajara (2718 metres) and the Pico del Teide (3715 metres), until reaching the Parador Nacional.

    Day 4

    3rd Stage - Las Cañadas - Vilaflor

    After a comforting night watching the stars in the privileged sky vault of Las Cañadas, today's route begins with a short climb to cross the Degollada de Guajara. From its top, we will enjoy an indescribable view of the whole southern slope of Tenerife, as well as of the whole cirque of Las Cañadas with its Pico Viejo, Pico del Teide and Montaña Blanca.
    From Degollada de Guajara, the way to Vilaflor is marked by a long descent through thick forests of Canary pine. It is a must to visit the mirador de Los Escurriales where we have a spectacular view over the Moon Landscape, a peculiar volcanic scenery of extraterrestrial aspect.
    The path crosses the ruins of the Casa de Marrubial, an old abandoned country house, and crosses the Barranco de Las Mesas in its descent towards the south.
    Vilaflor, located at 1400 metres above sea level, holds the title of being the village with the highest altitude in the Canary Islands. There awaits us a comforting accommodation with Spa to recover the energies that we will still need to tackle the last stage of the GR 131.

    4th Stage - Vilaflor - Villa de Arona

    Opposite the church of San Pedro de Vilaflor, the GR 131 heads back towards the sea along Calle Los Molinos. The Ermita de San Roque offers splendid views to the walker along an ascending path as it enters the Parque Natural de La Corona Forestal.
    ] After two kilometres, you start a long descent that crosses the Protected Landscape of Ifonche and alternates pine forest with cultivated terraces. After crossing the Barranco de Las Goteras ravine by the Guayero bridge, we enter an area intensely colonised by flowers.
    ] The area of Ifonche used to be a cereal producing place and even today there are plenty of cobbled threshing floors that follow one after another along the path. But before reaching Arona, the route enters the Reserva Natural Especial del Barranco del Infierno, from where we can see the islands of La Gomera and La Palma, as well as Adeje and Los Cristianos.
    The Roque del Conde, rising up to 1001 metres to the right of our path, already indicates the end of this last stage until we reach the Villa de Arona, a little more than 2 km away.
