What you’ll be doing

DAY 1

Arrive in Tenerife

Transfer to our hotel for the week where we will have the welcome meeting with our guide.

From the dry and arid south to the humid north and its luxuriant vegetation, Tenerife is as diverse in terms of climate and topography hence often called a mini continent.

DAY 2

The Volcanic Island - Arenas Negras & Chinyero

Our first walk of the week starts in the north of the island where we discover the area of the 300-year-old Arenas Negras volcano where we can marvel at the dramatic landscape.  Our route takes us through pine forests.  The volcano when it erupted back in 1706 destroyed the islands most important harbour at Garachico changing the size of the bay. We then head towards Chinyero, the last volcano formed on the island when it erupted back in 1909. Along the way we can imagine how the lava flowed and formed the varied landscape and our guide will explain the effect the volcanos had on the people of Santiago del Teide a century ago.

DAY 3

Hiking the Teno

Today we take our bus to the Teno country park located in the north-west of the island and is one of Tenerife’s most beautiful nature areas. Our hike takes us from the ridge of Baracan to the heart of Teno Alto, the most western village of the island. This area has kept much of its ecological, scenic and cultural wealth largely thanks to its isolated position. Goat keeping and cheese production still remains part of the local economy.

DAY 4

Day At Leisure

Today perhaps take a rest and enjoy the hotels facilities and relax by the pool or alternatively from the hotel stroll along the Rambla del Castro enjoying the palm groves, hidden beaches and sea views. Or a little further afield visit the neighbouring town of Puerto de la Cruz with its coastal promenade, shops and Botanical gardens.

  • Breakfast & Dinner

 

DAY 5

Anaga Biosphere Reserve

The Anaga mountain range is located on the north-east of the island and has been declared a Biosphere Reserve following the preservation of its natural assets in harmony with the local population. From Afur Hamlet our trail passes juniper groves, Canary Island willows and takes us down the gorge where you can often hear the sound of croaking frogs and singing birds to the dramatic rocky beach of Tamadite. Millions of years of erosion sculpted the landscape unveiling lava dykes, volcanic plugs and layers of varied materials.

DAY 6

Day At Leisure

Today take time out and take advantage of the hotel facilities and relax by the pool or perhaps participate in an optional tour organised by our local guide to visit the longest lava tunnel in Europe, Cueva del Viento; or the Teide Observatory and the peak of Teide using Teide’s cable car; or visit the old capital of the island, La Laguna, UNESCO World Heritage Site and indulge yourself with a winery visit including a lunch and a tasting.

 

Breakfast & Dinner included

DAY 7

Teide National Park

For our last walk we will enjoy Tenerife’s cherry on the cake: the jaw-dropping Teide National Park. Its 16 kilometres across the Caldera is full of colours and shapes from countless eruptions and lava flows is a must see including the highest elevation in Spain, Mount Teide peaking at 3,715 metres(12,190 ft) above sea level and is the famous symbol of the island. The natural beauty of the landscapes and the volcanic richness is no wonder why the area is awarded as a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
