What you’ll be doing

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.

The Anaga Country Park is located on the north-east of the Island and has been declared a Biosphere Reserve following the preservation of its natural assets.

DAY 3

Hiking the Teno

Teno Country Park is located in the north-west of the island and is one of Tenerife’s most beautiful nature areas and has kept much of its ecological, scenic and cultural wealth, largely thanks to its isolated position. Today’s hike takes us to the heart of Teno, from El Palmar to Teno Alto, the most western village of the Island. You will hike the ridge of Burracán Mountain to follow down to the“Cruz of Hilda”.

Length – 11km
Ascent – 500m
Descent – 500m
Transfer Time – 45 mins

  • Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner Included
DAY 4

Day At Leisure

Today take time out and take advantage of the hotel facilities and relax by the pool or perhaps visit the north of the Island and its wines . Wine has always been part of the culture of the Canaries and, of course, of Tenerife. The first grapevines were planted around 1497. Tenerife’s wines have been exported all over Europe since then. Even Shakespeare or Sir Walter Scott knew and loved them, including references to the Island’s wines in their work. So whether it is red, white, rosé or malvasia indulge yourself a glass or two together with one of the popular local cheeses.

59€ payable locally including lunch & wine tasting (subject to numbers)

  • Breakfast and Dinner Included

 

DAY 5

El Valle de La Orotava

Today ‘s hike is around El Valle de La Orotava where beautiful views can be experienced from the Tigaigas mountainside. Our route takes us from Chanajiga to Los Realejos via one of the most attractive trails in the Valle of La Orotava… with Laurel forests, the “wall” of Tigaiga and not forgetting the fantastic views of the La Orotava.

Length – 8km
Ascent – 100m
Descent – 700m
Transfer Time – 20 mins

  • Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner Included
DAY 6

Day At Leisure

For todays free day perhaps take an excursion to San Cristóbal de La Laguna, widely referred as La Laguna, the first capital of Tenerife. This lively city houses the first university in the Canary Islands so it is a meeting place where modern minds and young students gather. Walking in La Laguna’s beautiful streets is like travelling back intime. Churches, mansions, and historic buildings make this old city a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The excursion also includes a visit to Santa Cruz, the Island’s capital. It is a cosmopolitan and fascinating city where you can give yourself a dose of retail therapy on its lively streets, or visit some of its museums and discover the history of the island and the city.

Las Cañadas Del Teide

This wonderful National Park is something not to be missed which is no wonder it is the most visited national park in Europe. The landscapes here will leave you speechless and feeling engulfed within this impressive UNESCO World Heritage Site. The entire day will be spent hiking in the national park of Las Cañadas del Teide, a huge dry caldera of coloured rocks and dark lava flows.
