Tenerife is the most diverse hiking paradise of the Canary Islands.

My favorite Hikes in Tenerife
Millennial LAUREL Forest
Trees full of lichens, giant ferns and moss. An easy, enjoyable and botanically interesting hike through a millions of years old ecosystem with impressive views of deep ravines, ancient volcanoes and the tropical coast. A living fossil from the Tertiary age and home to numerous endemic plants and animals.
TOP TOUR Masca
Demanding and high-contrast uphill and downhill hike through lush vegetation. Breathtaking panoramic views over the islands of La Palma and La Gomera. Relax in one of the most picturesque mountain villages in the Canary Islands, famous for its traditional architecture. This is NOT the hike through the Masca Gorge!
RURAL Valley WALK
Easy ascent through farming terraces and scattered villages where locals live. Enjoy an embroidered landscape of ancient volcanoes, steep ravines and subtropical fog forest. After a picnic break, you can taste our typical coffee specialty or wine, in one of the island’s least known rural locations in absolute serenity.
The trail follows an old shepherd’s path used by the former inhabitants and farmers. You walk around the edges of an ancient crater, cross a giant heather forest, overcome a mountain of medium difficulty and arrive at one of the most remote places in Tenerife with optional cheese and wine tasting.
Sporty ascent and descent to the northwestern tip of Tenerife along paths used by the island’s indigenous people. A varied endemic vegetation, quaint hamlets, steep cliffs and panoramic views. Taste the local gastronomy or finish with a refreshing bath in the Atlantic Ocean next to a candy-cane-colored lighthouse.
Natural Wonder Isla Baja
Hike on the geological traces of ancient volcanic eruptions where erosion has shaped an impressive silhouette of craters and chimneys. Learn how the water supply works in this rural areas. Enjoy wonderful views of the coastlines while descending a deep ravine alongside abandoned caves and ruined houses.
