I got to choose my favourite tour on four consecutive days and experienced each tour in a lovely group of international, totally diverse hikers. Each trip was led by professional local guides and active-tour operators, who informed and entertained us perfectly. In the morning we met at the Europa-square, were greeted by our hiking tour-guides, were equipped with a large picnic-bag and off we went. Via wild mountain roads and steep coastal paths we were taken across the island in order to hike in the most stunning corners. Naturally always with a short break in one of the obligatory coffee-bars… On the agenda for me were a volcano ascent with overnight stay in a hut, a coastal tour with boat trip and a forest hike through the Canary pine thicket.
I enjoyed every second of it except for the rocking coach ride downhill along indefinitely winding roads from high up all the way to sea level – this proved too much for my stomach. However the views and the incredibly varied scenery in diverse vegetation areas compensate for everything! Each tour was so worth it!
