Walking in Tenerife

Few places can match the natural beauty of the Canary Islands where one of the islands Tenerife has become a mecca for enthusiastic walkers. Tenerife is an island of contrasts from the volcanic moonscapes of the Teide National Park to the high cliffs ridges and deep valleys of the coastal mountain ranges.

The island boasts the highest mountain in Spain, Teide, at 3718m. Due to its southern latitude its slopes can be walked for most of the year. The coastal ranges of Anaga and Teno rise abruptly from the sea.

Teno hosts the giant and dramatic sea cliffs of Los Gigantes (610m). Anaga has steep mountain ridges offering magnificent views across the ever present Atlantic Ocean.

Midway between the two is the Orotava Valley with its pine clad slopes. All of this is well away from the crowded tourist resorts for which Tenerife is renowned.

We looked at hotels throughout the walking areas and have opted for two superb hotels in Puerto De La Cruz, a small town centrally placed at the foot of the Orotava Valley within easy reach of the other three walking areas. It is on the North Coast by the sea and has very much retained its Spanish atmosphere

The Walking

WalkingTenerifeOutstanding walks are available in each of the main areas. Explore the arid landscapes of wind sculpted lava pinnacles of Mount Teide National Park, best accessed from the Parador. Visit the Orotava Valley where you have a choice of mountains forests banana plantations and orchards. Enjoy walking through the mountain villages of Anaga along winding paths with stunning sea views perhaps catching a glimpse of Gran Canaria.

Discover walking in the Teno Rural Park with its spectacular walks through gorges and along ridges and with views of the sea from high cliffs. This park contains the Masca Gorge, a walk through which is one to be remembered. On our guided walks you may have the opportunity to walk up this gorge to the precariously perched Masca village having accessed the start of the walk by a boat trip past the giant Los Gigantes cliffs.

Guided - Independent Walking

We offer four guided walks in a 7 night holiday which will feature all of Tenerife’s prime walking areas. The ones you will enjoy will depend on your arrival day. The walks range from 50-600m in ascent and on average 3 - 4 hours long and may include a walk down the Masca Gorge ending with an included boat jour. You may also participate in two additional walks subject they, or explore the Oratavo Valley and the Barranco de Ruizo weather and availability and are bookable locally and included a hike to the very top of Teide (3718m), Spain's highest mountain. The special permit will be arranged locally. The second walk is to the mountainous area of Anaga. You will walk as part of a cosmopolitan group and be led by an experienced English speaking guide. Transfers are included in the price, you will be collected from nearby your hotel and returned at the end. 

Available November to March.

Above Light House Tenerife SpainSelf Guided

Available year round. Our self guided walks cover the four main walking areas of Anaga Teno Orotava Valley and Mount Teide National Park. We provide exclusively with our holidays our self guided Walking Booklet with a choice of walks mostly of moderate difficulty. They range from 6-11miles and a climb from 200 - 1000m and are all from 4-6 hours in length. The booklet has all grades of walks. We provide a map and full directional notes as well as details of public transport or car accessibility.

 

Extend your stay in Mount Teide National Park

By staying at the Parador hotel in the Mount Teide National Park it enables you to have greater access to the walks in this area, three of which start and finish at the hotel. The walking here with its moonscapes and old lava flows is very different to those on the rest of the island, all the while under Mount Teide itself.

Getting Around

Our guided walkers have all their transport arranged for them. Self-guided walkers either use the public buses or a hire car. The local bus system has regular services linking major towns as well as reaching remote walk starting points.  Each walk in our booklet indicates the bus service needed and we provide you with a timetable. Our self guided walks are also accessible by car and we are happy to arrange car hire. The island has excellent roads and few traffic problems.

Island hop in the Canaries

Why not combine 2 or 3 islands for an island hopping walking holiday?
