Hiking: Tenerife

Wild Atlantic, sunny coasts and volcanic stones

Not all islands are the same. Every island in the Canary Islands has its very own character, and you can experience this while island hiking on Tenerife. The largest island in the Canaries is a popular destination for hiking holidaymakers – and almost the whole year round!

From the beginning of February until December the mild climate on the Atlantic allows for wonderful hiking adventures. The stable weather conditions are also what gives the island its distinctive appearance. With Eurohike you can hike from the green Northwest of Tenerife to the southern countryside through rugged coastlines and past dreamy mountain villages. Eight days of pure mountain enjoyment in the middle of the Atlantic!

Itinerary

Garachico is located on the roaring Atlantic coast in the north-west of Tenerife. The old part of town boasts beautiful mansions, churches and the ‚Castillo San Miguel’. The volcanic rock pools invite to a refreshing plunge.

You hike through the very recent volcanic area of Garachico along historic paths. The strenuous ascent to the Ermita de San Francisco is rewarded with a stunning view onto the town situated below, but first and foremost onto the Atlantic Ocean and the entire northern coastline.

After a short break in San Juan del Reparo you descend across the fertile landscape past colourful flowers, cactee and agaves back to the sea again.

ca. 3 – 5.5 h

An amazing hike from the sea into the uplands. HIking through remote gorges, characteristic cultivated land and laurel forests you reach the tranquil mountain village of Erjos.

You continue along alpine paths through the Teno-mountain range until you arrive at Santiago del Teide. On today’s hike you walk across several vegetation areas – a true paradise for flora and fauna enthusiasts.

ca. 5.5 h
ca. 11 km

Enjoy panoramic views on your transfer through terraced cultivated areas, while passing grazing herds of goats, to the magical Teno-mountain range. Initially the route takes you up to a mountain ridge from where you can enjoy a marvellous panoramic view.

Then you proceed along the ridge over to the Tabaiba pass and onwards on a stunning high altitude path. From here you have an extraordinary view onto the western coastline and the mighty Masca-gorge with its black rocks. Passing the two Gala-Peaks, you return to Santiago del Teide.

ca. 5 h
ca. 13 km
900 m

You walk directly from the hotel on the enchanting King's Path down to the village of Los Gigantes, with its 450 m high cliffs.

Today you will have enough time to explore the lava beaches below the second highest cliffs in Europe, visit the harbour and for a swim in the pool or the roaring Atlantic Ocean.

ca. 2.5 h
ca. 9 km

850 m

Transfer to the neat village of Adeje, from there you proceed along ancient bridle paths, which were used formerly to transport goods across the mountains, across remote mountainous areas.

The route offers ample panoramic views alongside terraced fields and forests, leading you high above the infernal gorge towards Ifonche. You continue along varied trails to the idyllic mountain region of Arona, situated below the mighty Teide-massif.

ca. 5.5 h
ca. 14 km
750 m
300 m

On today’s tour you experience yet another one of Tenerife’s unique landscapes. You walk up to a viewpoint located at over 1800m in altitude just below Mount Teide, from where you can spot the ‚white lunarscape’.

Let your imagination go wild whilst watching these bizarre sand stone formations on the slopes created by wind, water and the weather. An amazing contrast compared to the black volcanic rock of the past few days.

ca. 4.5 – 5 h

Tour character

Daily hiking tours lead you along relatively rocky paths and trails, a good basic fitness level is required for tours with walking times of up to 5.5 hours. Surefootedness is especially required for the hike through the Masca-gorge. Whenever possible, you can choose between a challenging itinerary (pointed out in the text) and a more relaxed one each day. Discover Tenerife’s diversity along magnificent mountain and coastal paths.

Teneriffa, 27.10.2023-3.11.2023
Wir sind von der Reise sehr begeistert. Da wir kurzfristig von einer Israelreise eines anderen Anbieters wechseln mussten, schätzten wir die kompetente und unkomplizierte Beratung per Telefon oder Mail sehr. Die Reiseunterlagen wurden uns trotzdem rechtzeitig und vollständig zugestellt. Was wir nicht ganz verstanden haben waren die Schwierigkeiten, die beim Transfer von Vilaflor zum Hafen Los Christianos offenbar bestanden. Sie teilten uns mit, dass Sie diesen Transfer nicht organisieren können. Wir haben diesen Transfer per Taxi dann selber organisiert. Vielleicht lag es daran, dass wir den Transfer nicht zum Flughafen, sondern eben zum Hafen benötigt haben...? Die Betreuung vor Ort war nicht vorhanden - also habe ich sie mit 1 Stern bewertet. Wir hatten auch keine entsprechenden Kontaktdaten.

Abwechslungsreiche Wanderungen zwischen Berge und Meer
Die Wanderrouten sind sorgfältig ausgewählt und lassen die Vielfalt der Insel wandernd erfahren. Abwechslung bieten die Routen, aber auch die ausgewählten Hotels. Kontrastreich vor allem der Wechsel zwischen dem ländlichen Santiago del Teide und der Bettenhochburg von Los Gigantes. Auch beim letzten Etappenort Vilaflor wähnte man sich in einem einsamen Berghotel. Das Personal war durchgehend freundlich, kompetent und liess Gastfreundschaft spüren. Auch war des immer möglich, sich durch das Hotel ein Lunchpaket zusammenstellen zu lassen. Einzig das Essen im Hotel in Santiago del Teide war auf sehr tiefem Niveau und dem Standard des Hotels überhaupt nicht angemessen. Alternative Verpflegungsmöglichkeiten fehlten in diesem kleinen Ort.

Einsame Wanderungen durch kontrastreiche Vegetationen mit atemberaubenden Aussichten
Wir kamen kaum aus dem Staunen heraus, wie abwechslungsreich die Wanderrouten zusammengestellt wurden. Jeden Tag konnten wir die verschiedensten Vegetationen durchwandern und uns an den schönsten Aussichten nicht satt sehen. Die Gehzeiten entsprachen den Angaben. Die Strecken waren sorgfältig ausgearbeitet und die Beschreibungen ausführlich dokumentiert. Wir konnten das ursprüngliche Teneriffa erleben.

Perfekte Wanderwege_abseits vom Rummel
Die Reise war sehr gut dokumentiert und die Wanderwege waren problemlos zu finden und in einem sehr guten Zustand. Sehr abwechslungsreich in Landschaften und Farben. Geschätzt habe ich auch die Ruhe. Perfekte Zeit im Juni betreffend Wetter und wenig Touristen. Hotels waren sehr gut ausgewählt in Garachico und Santiago del Tiede. Einen halben Tag in Los Gigantes ist absolut ausreichend.
