Time Travel among Volcanoes

Time Travel among Volcanoes

The route begins at a romantic woodland chapel. From here we climb along a path covered with a carpet of pine needles, winding through fayas, giant heather, laurel and Canary Island pines. Along the way we learn more about the volcanic geological history of Tenerife, which can still be felt today. We explore the youngest part of the island, which is the result of two of the last volcanic eruptions: the Trevejo (in 1706) and Chinyero (in 1909) volcanoes. It is an open-air geological museum with pyroclasts, cones, tunnels, columns and lava flows, all of which are remarkable for their peculiar shapes. Fascinating colours of nature accompany us with spectacular panoramic views. We enjoy our picnic next to a large extinct volcano and drink fresh water from the longest water channel on the island. The last part of the route takes us through a dense mixed forest to a beautiful rural village in the north, where we can share photos over a traditional coffee or a glass of local wine (not included in the price). This place will undoubtedly remain in your memory as you walk along paths where, not so long ago, lava flows were still burning.

Wear hiking shoes or trainers with good soles and bring raincoat, hat, sun protection and enough water with you.
