The Old Lighthouse Walk

The Old Lighthouse Walk

A challenging ascent and descent to the most north-western point of Tenerife, along paths used by the Guanches, the island’s ancient aborigines. Varied endemic vegetation, scattered hamlets, impressive ravines, cliffs and spectacular views. On the way we stop in a beautiful rural village to talk to a goatherd and see the work of the shepherds in this remote place. We descend along an old path that shows us the simple beauty of the cultivated fields, farmhouses, cave dwellings and stables of its inhabitants. Following the path that runs along the edge of the ravine, we reach a viewpoint from which we can admire the majestic slopes of the Teno Rural Park, the coastline as far as Punta de Teno and its romantic lighthouse. Once we have reached our destination, we will have the opportunity to refresh ourselves with a swim in the sea and enjoy the breathtaking scenery of the cliffs of Los Gigantes and the neighbouring islands of La Gomera and La Palma. Experience an authentic adventure in one of the most beautiful places in Tenerife!
