the Teneguía Tour
It was the youngest part of La Palma until the new Cumbre Vieja volcano erupted. But the Teneguía Route still shows an exotic landscape of recent lavas dotted with incipient vegetation. The Teneguía volcano erupted in 1971 and is situated below the San Antonio volcano in the municipality of Fuencaliente. Both volcanoes form an impressive volcanic scenery that can be walked along the last stretch of the GR 131 to the sea. The salt flats with their two lighthouses and a picturesque inlet that serves as a primitive jetty mark the end of this route.

Trekking through the Teneguía Volcano
Route offered in collaboration with Isla Bonita Tours
The youngest part of La Palma, with its exotic lava under the San Antonio volcano, in Fuencaliente. We see an impressive landscape of lava on this beautiful tour, when we walk downhill towards the Teneguía volcano, the salt flats and the 2 lighthouses. Possibility to take a bath in the sea and to taste a little typical paella and wine at the end of the walk. This is the Teneguía Route.
The Teneguía Route
A guided hike to the Teneguía volcano on the island of La Palma.
At the foot of Fuencaliente, at a height of 650 meters above sea level, we find the cone of the San António volcano, some 3,000 years old.
The vineyards and the sea
The Teneguia volcano erupted in 1971 and is located below it. The path descends from the San António crater through an arid landscape whose volcanic slag and black sand dunes are in permanent contrast with an intense blue sea. . The vineyards, as well as small thickets of different plants, add a green tone to this lunar landscape.
The Roque Teneguia
On the Roque Teneguía, a light-colored promontory that emerges from the black ashes, we find cave engravings made by the ancient aborigines of the island. It is believed that the old hot springs that were buried after the 1677 eruption, and which give the town of Fuencaliente its name, were found in this place.
Shortly after we will arrive at the foot of the Teneguía Volcano, the youngest volcano in the Canary archipelago. Even today hot vapors with a sulfurous smell emanate from their feet. On its left flank we can climb it to contemplate the lava rivers that formed and descended until spilling into the sea. The landscape is spectacular due to its aridity and dramatically describes the extraordinary force that springs from the earth with the eruption of a volcano.
