3 Magnificent hikes in Tenerife!

Tenerife is mainly known for its beautiful volcanic sand beaches, but what many people don’t know is that when you go deeper towards the centre of the island, you’ll find some unbelievable landscapes. Those landscapes make the island of Tenerife a very unique location for a nice hike. There are a lot of hiking trails in Tenerife and they differ a lot depending on whether you are hiking in the North or the South of Tenerife. Down below you will find the best hikes in Tenerife and all tours are accompanied by an experienced guide. For all our hiking excursions, we will pick you up at your hotel in the south of Tenerife and take you to the hiking site. You can find different levels for hiking in Tenerife down below.

The legendary hiking trail of Masca

One of the best hiking routes in Tenerife is in Masca. Unfortunately, the Masca hiking trail is still not accessible, but we offer a great alternative hike. For this beautiful hike in Tenerife, we will pick you up at your hotel between 8:00-8:30 in the morning. Then we will drive to the village called Santiago del Teide which is located near Masca. From there at an altitude of about 1110 meters, we will start our hiking trail and walk through a beautiful forest where we will reach the magnificent viewpoint called “Pico de Gala” which is at the height of 1145 meters and also the highest point of this hike. You can enjoy a beautiful view of the Teno mountains and the island of La Gomera there. Then you will walk through some charming green forests and pass local farms while listening to the singing of the local Canary bird. After that, the hiking path continues along the old goat paths and we eventually arrive at our final destination Masca. Masca is a charming little village where you will have free time to reward yourself with a delicious Barraquito or some food while enjoying the great views. On the way back from the Masca hike we pass Los Gigantes with the bus where we stop for a short boat trip to the hidden Masca bay. With a bit of luck, we might even encounter some dolphins on the way. You also get the chance to end the day with a nice dive in the water. After the boat tour, we will bring you back to your hotel.
