What you'll do
This picturesque alpine hike explores a high undulating ridge with some short steep ascents (but nothing dangerous) that offers panoramic views of the Laurel forest. We then follow a path deep into the sub-tropical rain forest where hanging lichen and mosses abound. This is without doubt one of the most important eco-systems on the island. Then, just like magic, open countryside appears where we are given the most spectacular panoramic view the island of Tenerife has to offer. For the next 45 minutes or so, we are literally looking down on the Masca gorge and the surrounding volcanic landscape. On a clear day, the finale is a fabulous view of Mount Teide looming in the distance across the Santiago valley and the lava fields high above. Our hike then continues on easy footpaths through Pine forest and descends majestically into a valley which is reminiscent of the English countryside. Here many meadow plants exist with bees merrily buzzing and butterflies fluttering around us.
Hello! I am Cristina and I deliver local and authentic experiences to travellers in Tenerife and around Canary Islands. In this experience, I partnered with my colleague Andy Tomkins. He has 20 years’ experience of walking Tenerife’s reat outdoors. His knowledge of the mountains and forests, local history, and the flora and fauna here is extensive. Before moving to Tenerife, he was a ranger in the Peak District National Park, but his love of hiking and exploring began when he was a child. He has spent nearly all of his life walking and climbing not only in the UK but all over Europe including Mont Blanc to name but one. He will love to share his passion with you and show you the beautiful landscapes of Tenerife.

Where you'll be
Masca: In Masca you can find deep ravines and cliffs that end in the Atlantic Ocean between the vegetation and the curved roads. It has the reputation of being a hiding place for pirates. Masca also stands out for its traditional architecture, despite the fact that most of its buildings do not have a great antiquity. The Masca farmhouse preserves the best example of rural architecture in the Canary Islands.
